Melody Pittman is a blogger and travel writer from Vero Beach, Florida who is on a quest to conquer all 50 states and visit as many countries as she is years old. To date, Melody has visited 38 states (12 to go) and 47 countries (1 to go). She and her daughter, Taylor Pittman Hardy, write about luxury travel, culture, and food on their blog, Wherever I May Roam.
