Merritt Gurley

Merritt grew up bouncing around the world with her American-diplomat parents, which eventually led to a career in travel writing. She spent the past 10 sun-drenched years in Thailand, where she was senior editor at a travel magazine, filmed a documentary and wrote a book. Ready for a break from the tropics, she recently moved to Amsterdam with her Dutch husband and two sons. Merritt now spends her days staring moon-eyed at the astounding architecture and landscape, snacking on bitterballen and drinking Trappist beers. Proost!
