Meet AGT

Hey! It’s me :) AGT! Also known as Erica. I’m a service member in the U.S Coast Guard , a travel blogger, foodie, and fashionista currently living and loving life in NYC.! I love exploring new cities, taking road-trips, traveling, and meeting new people. This blog began as a space to write about my adventures, my travels, and getting involved in my community as I travel for work and leisure. Now it has grown into a project to inspire and to encourage others to live a life that inspires. Get involved, get out and try something new, explore, dream, and discover the world around you!


Explore the world around you in your current city or town. Explore on foot, bike, car, train, or plane. Dream of your next adventure and remember the ones you’ve already taken. Discover new places, new ideas, new cultures, and more about yourself and other people along the way. Most importantly discover how you can have a positive impact and inspire others to do the same.

  • Run, bike, and/or swim for a cause or simply for yourself
  • Join an organization or start your own.
  • Volunteer your time. Donate something you no longer need.
  • Mix and mingle at charity events and find out how you can make a difference.

AGT on the Move 1

A Girl Travels will take you on a journey with me as I move from city to city learning to be a local, exploring new places, volunteering in the community, and meeting new people. I hope to inspire you to try something new, to go on an adventure, and to rediscover your own community. I’ll be taking pictures, volunteering, sharing events, eating food, exploring the world of fashion and beauty, and meeting new people along the way – I hope you’ll join me :)

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, and catch the trade winds in your sails.”  EXPLORE! DREAM! DISCOVER! –  Mark Twain

    • Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere! I’m looking forward to BWB in June and to meeting you! This will be my first blogging conference. Have you been to any? Let’s keep in touch :)

  1. Thanks 4 the Twitter follow! Looking forward to becoming friends – traveling the world, a girl after my own heart! Ever been to Trinidad?

  2. Hey Erica,
    It’s Theresa from Giessen. I decided to swing by and sign up to receive email subscriptions from your blog and to pick your brain a bit about the blog-o-verse. Love your blog by the way!! It seriously makes me miss Jersey and Philly…


    • Hey Theresa!

      Thanks for stopping by! Pick away! It’s been a year for me in the blog-o-verse and I still learn new things. I’m sure we’ll be learning something from each other. Hopefully I’ll see you next year at BlogHer 2013 in Chicago! I’m definitely going next year.

      Love AGT :)

  3. Hi, A Girl Travels,

    You subscribed to my blog SallansCorner – thanks! And, I just checked yours out, and I love it!
    We are cut out of the same cloth, you and I.
    Aren’t we lucky to live in such a great city?
    Thank you for being in the military; it seems like it would be very difficult moving around the way you do. Especially after the 9/11 Anniversary I feel like I can’t thank you enough.

    I look forward to reading your blog!
