She has written about the (mis)adventures that ensued as she traipsed around the globe on her travel website, LLWorldTour, which has had hundreds of thousands of hits and subscribers from all over the world.
She was recently interviewed for ABC’s Good Morning America. Her site was a finalist in the 2008 Weblog Awards and listed as one of the “Travel Blogs I Can’t Live Without” in 2008 and top twenty “most-inspirational blogs of 2007” by nationally syndicated columnist Chris Elliott. Lisa was also featured on MSNBC.com, Frommers.com, the Chicago Daily Herald, the NJ Daily Record, Women on the Road, The Travel Chicks Radio Show, Blog Talk Radio, the Amateur Traveler Podcast, and Chicagoist.
