About Molly

Author of Golden Girl Travel, Molly Golden

Welcome to Golden Girl. I hope you find my posts to be as fascinating as I do writing them. Filling my life with titillating travel destinations,  delectable dining experiences, and random adventurous exploits are what I live for... all while trying to dress the part. I hope you enjoy and stop by often!

Q: Why did I start my blog?

A: Since travel became a huge part of my life a couple years ago, I started to feel a real desire to start sharing my unique experiences by journaling and photographing my life. Also--the name comes from my "nickname"...my last name is Golden.

Q: What did you study in school?

A: I graduated from Winona State University (MN) with a degree in Advertising, and really enjoyed working on the creative side. Most days at school you'd see me walking around with a camera in one hand and a latte in the other.

Q: Where do I live?

A: My home base is Wayzata, MN... a small suburb outside of Minneapolis surrounded by Lake Minnetonka. LOVE IT! I made the move out of the city (Mpls) a couple years ago, and I have no regrets. I grew up in a (very) small town in southern MN, and love small town vibes.

Q: Where did I get the dress in my head shot?

A: My favorite store in Nantucket--Shift--it's a Mahi Gold shift dress.
