I'm Cindy McCain, Southern Girl Gone Global, who flew from my empty Nashville nest to write/teach for three years in magical Marrakesh, Morocco and the Caribbean. Now back in Nashville, I'm still sharing tales, tips, and takeaways from living abroad, exploring 27 countries, and finding treasures in my own backyard. My travel/lifestyle blog offers destination itineraries and reviews of stays, spas, restaurants, and excursions; recipes/books/movies that transport; and life lessons I'm still learning as a single mom who is both a Stage 5 Clinger and a Gypsy Soul. It's a celebration of letting go of fear, holding tighter to faith, and finding freedom in roots and wings. Featured in Yahoo!
