ABOUT

Hey There!

I'm Meg James

I’m the founder of Go and Do Good  travel, focusing on giving back while choosing hotel accommodations. Our family is currently living as expats in Madrid, Spain and we're on a service gap year at the American Christian school where our boys attend. We began our international travels together with a mission trip to Guatemala in 2017. Our love for Latin American countries stuck, and we continued to travel up and down Central and South America, with an African safari to the Serengeti in between. Join us as we share about being an American family in Spain on Instagram and as we show our bros the good in the world. We hope to encourage you to travel or live abroad, too!

FAQ

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Q: HAVE YOU ALWAYS LIVED ABROAD?

A: No, our life in Spain is new to us! I always dreamed as a child that I'd live abroad with my family one day, but somedays it's hard to believe that this dream came true!

Q: Why is your account named Go and Do Good ?

®

A: I began travel writing back in 2017 and started to discover hotels around the world that gave back to charities, ministries and their communities. We love to travel and leave an impact, so the name stuck!

Q: What do you share on instagram?

A: I enjoy running my Instagram account focused on sharing our journey as digital nomads. On my page, you will find a daily glimpse of life in Spain and the cultural differences between the U.S. and Spain. We also write for hotels when traveling around Europe and beyond.

Q: WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY BEING A DIGITAL NOMAD?

A: My husband left his IT career of 15 years to pursue financial, time and location freedoms. Between the two of us, we own three small U.S. businesses that can be operated from anywhere.

Q: where do you call home in the u.s.?

A: We own a small farmhouse in the surburbs of Greenville, South Carolina that we lovingly call Trinity Farm. This is one of our three main income streets through renting it during our travels. 

Q: What are your future plans as an expat?

A: The beauty of time freedom is not having to set boundaries for our time. We are really enjoying living in Madrid, Spain in this current season and are opening to extending it for however long it feels like home.

Q: Why did you choose madrid in spain?

A: With the freedom to really live anywhere, having a homebase for our bros was important to us. We found a great Christian school in Madrid and I enjoy living somewhere with all four seasons.

Q: How do you get hotel collaborations?

A: I am fortunate to have been a hotel travel writer, well-connected in the travel industry, for many years. Through pitches to hotels, the majority of our stays are fully compensated.

Q: HOW DID YOU GET INTO TRAVEL WRITING?

A: I took the leap and formed my own travel website. Over the years, I got more and more contracts from hotels. More recently, I have become a freelance ghostwriter, too, writing for a popular Spanish publication focused on travel.
