Hi! I'm Sydney, Syd, Squid - really whatever you're in the mood to call me. After having spent twenty years never traveling outside North America (or much at all), I packed my bags and headed on a three week long trip through France and Italy. For the first time, I was able to recognize my passion for traveling the world and experiencing new cultures. In the midst of graduating college and embarking on a new career, I began going on trips every chance I got, and realized that I wasn't stopping anytime soon.

The Wright Way is a travel content site created by members of the Akullian Creative team with the aim to build a community of travelers to inspire those who don't...yet.
I'm constantly hearing people make excuses for why they can't travel - they don't think they have the time, the money, or the expertise. For a long time, I was one of those people! Traveling the world seemed like a far off Utopian fantasy reserved for the rich and famous. As I was neither, it was easy to justify my pigeon-hole view of the world and stay in one place. After my first trip overseas, I realized how wrong I was. People from all over the world, of every financial standing, were traveling in their own way. It made me wonder, why weren't more people I knew doing this, and how could I help?
