Amy Piper is a Lansing, Michigan-based freelance travel writer, blogger, and photographer. Bomb-sniffing dogs chased her in the middle of the night in Bogota, gate agents refused her boarding to Paraguay (wrong visa), and Federal Marshalls announced her seat number on a plane looking for a murder suspect (traded seats.) It’s always an adventure! She even finds adventures close to home in Lansing, Michigan. You can follow her adventures at www.FollowthePiper.com, @100ThingsLansing, or www.AmyPiper.com.
