About Us

Kathy Manney

Kathy is a student of history and takes pleasure in writing about remarkable and little-known aspects of Oregon and the American Southwest history.

As the travel columnist for a monthly regional lifestyle newspaper and travel expert-at-large, Kathy has widely traveled within the United States and Internationally. She approaches living as a life-long education and does not write about a destination that she has not visited and photographed herself. Kathy purposefully searches for a different slant for each new article. Bringing a unique perspective to her articles, Kathy would like for her readers to take away something that may not have been covered elsewhere.

Her “must see before I die” travel adventures continue, including an adventure of a lifetime trip with her husband to Antarctica in 2007. All of Kathy’s travel adventures are filled with enthusiasm. She has had significant life experience living abroad: study tours, culture classes and participating volunteer subculture work in Taiwan and the Philippines.
