Megan Ahrens
Megan Ahrens led a wholesome, corn-fed life in Nebraska until, in her early 20s, she was let loose on the noodle bowls of Asia. It was while living in Korea that Megan developed a love for travel, photography, and unique food. Her favorite cuisine comes from Northern India, she loves the glaciers and icebergs of Iceland, and she'll always have a soft spot for the pomp and circumstance of South Korea. When not on the road, Megan is often hiding out at a remote cabin in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains.
