Hi! I'm Melissa. I write and photograph The Traveler's Lunchbox from my home, wherever in the world that may be. Right now it's northern Germany. During the life of this blog it has also been Seattle (my home city) and Edinburgh, Scotland (where I lived for seven years and completed a PhD). At various points in my pre-blogging past it was also Berkeley, New Orleans, Bilbao and Dublin, the last of which is where I met my German husband and best friend Manuel. As if things weren't international enough, in 2009 we adopted a galgo español (Spanish greyhound) named Lily, who does her best to help us work off all our extra calories.

If you are contacting me on behalf of a business or agency, however, please note that I do not accept products for review, I do not cover restaurant openings or need tips for holiday-/seasonally-appropriate content, and I do not wish to be added to your press release database. Chances are if you send me an email of this type, I'll mark it as spam and no more messages from you will ever reach my inbox again.
