Merritt took her first international trip, to Paris, at the age of three, and for most of her childhood she could be found clutching to a toy airplane. Born and raised in the United States, she’s spent nearly twenty years traveling the world to remote locations in places like India, New Zealand and Myanmar. But her bucket list trip resides in Africa. She has ten years of marketing experience, and upon moving to San Francisco five years ago, she fell in love with all things design. Erroguide began out of a yearning for creativity, and a passion for hospitality design and travel.

A Swedish girl, born in California & living in Virginia, Juliet Bryant didn't find "home" until she met her love, and now husband. Together they love to travel everywhere they can, and believe that travel is the best way to get to know yourself and the people you love. A few of her favorite things include early mornings & drinking espresso on the patio, kisses in the sunshine, seeing new places, good conversations around candle lit dinners, swimming in the sea, and photographing people in love (which also happens to be her profession!). You kind find more of her photography work at JulietBryantPhotography.com
