Welcome to Strangers in the Living Room, a travel blog by American TV journalist Terry Anzur. That’s me.
You need this blog because you’re always a stranger in somebody’s living room when you travel. You’ve come to the right place for honest trip planning advice. Always based on my authentic personal travel experiences and NO content generated by AI, ever.
How I Travel with the Kindness of Strangers
I love luxury and adventure that doesn’t break the budget. Always on the lookout for FREE travel stuff. Asking local residents for advice on where to stay, what to eat and what to do. I rely on the kindness of strangers. And share my top tips with you.
Why I Write this Travel Blog
As a kid from the East Coast of the United States, I travelled across the USA with my family to our new home in California. The drive in our Dodge Dart opened my eyes to the wonders of America. Not just the cities and national parks, but the people. My dad would pull into a random town and ask a Stranger, “Where’s a good place to eat?” The recommendations were great! Thanks, Dad.
I started this blog when I became a dual citizen of the USA and the EU, through ancestry in Slovenia. There is so much more to this undiscovered European gem than you will read on typical travel websites! Join me as I embrace the land my grandparents left more than 100 years ago.
Traveling around the world as a TV journalist and media trainer, I have often relied on the kindness of Strangers. There’s always a “fixer” who can translate the language and culture. That’s how I find the restaurant that’s open after-hours in Rome. Or how I stay safe during a moonlight camel ride on the beach in Karachi. Advice from trusted Strangers can enhance your personal security, as well as your travel experiences.
I’ve appeared in the top 1% of reviewers on Trip Advisor, with more than 450,000 readers. I’ve posted more than 1500 reviews from all over the world. Follow strangersblog on Trip Advisor to find them all in one place. I’d love to connect with you at Terry Anzur my YouTube channel.
