Long before her first published article, Los Angeles-based Athena Lucero shared with an office colleague “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heathrow Airport,” the title she gave to a humorous tale from her personal travel journals about all the things that went wrong on the last day of her first trip to London. “You should be publishing your stories,” the law firm partner chuckled. Eventually Athena followed that cue – and with unrelenting curiosity to discover the world, its people, their lore, traditions and cuisines – she left a rewarding position at an international law firm and turned her passion into a career of storytelling. From wine making on California’s Central Coast and the ancient vineyards of Lavaux in Switzerland; to tasting New Norwegian cuisine on a trek across Norway; from shushing down the slopes of Park City, Utah and snowshoeing, cross-country and alpine skiing through the Swiss Alps; to immersing her senses in the gaucho culture of Argentina; and discovering Monterrey, Mexico, the country’s most American-looking city whose inhabitants are among the happiest people in the world, Los Angeles-based Athena Lucero can always be found researching or scouting her next off-the-beaten path travel story.
