Tarani Duncan is a transplant from Knoxville, Tenn., where she gained infamy for packing Toby (her magical hatchback) and taking spontaneous road trips all over the eastern U.S. When she wasn’t on the road, Tarani freelanced for an entertainment publication in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and recorded music in a closet at her parent's house.
With more than 100,000 miles of road-trippin’ beneath her belt and with the help of all the wonderful people she's encountered along the way, Tarani's seen the local hideaways in just about every place she’s visited.
In 2010, Tarani moved to the city of New Orleans where she and her small brown dog currently reside in a cottage only a couple blocks away from the Mississippi River. In addition to writing Travelblogue for MyNewOrleans.com, Tarani crafts cocktails at a wine bar in the Bywater and is currently working towards a degree at UNO.
