Justine Harrington is a writer based in Austin, Texas, where she covers topics spanning travel, food & drink, lifestyle, culture, social advocacy, and the outdoors.


As a freelancer, Justine’s work has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Marriott Bonvoy Traveler, Forbes Travel Guide, Fodor’s, USA Today, Backpacker, Frommer’s, Sunseeker Magazine, Scandinavian Traveler, and trivago Magazine, among dozens of other print and online publications.

Justine graduated from the University of Arkansas with bachelor’s degrees in French and Cultural Anthropology and minors in Journalism and African-American Studies. As a sophomore, she spent a year studying the French language, literature, and art history in southern France, which sparked a lifelong passion for travel and global learning. Writing is her true love, although she’s had nearly every other travel-related job you could imagine, from ESL educator in Quito, Ecuador to head director for a high school language immersion program in Biarritz, France. Her favorite cities are San Sebastian, Copenhagen, Zagreb, Paris, and Mexico City.
