Travel and automotive writer Michael Milne writes about world travel, car museums, road trips, military history, local food and more for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Huffington Post, Hemmings Motor News, American Airlines, Octane, Classic & Sports Car (UK), Classic Motorsports, AAA, Classic Military Vehicle and other publications. From Abu Dhabi to Pyongyang to Zagreb, he has visited more than 250 classic car sights around the globe.

Michael is the author of the Roadster Guide to America’s Classic Car Museums & Attractions, now in its 2nd edition. The Detroit Free Press called the book “vacation planning for car lovers,” while Hemmings Motor News Radio has dubbed Milne the “Rick Steves of car museums.”

Along with comedian Jay Leno, he is on the Judging Panel for the annual Historic Motoring Awards in the UK. His interview subjects include Leno and Rock-and-Roll star Alice Cooper.

Recent public speaking appearances include the World Forum for Motor Museums in Germany and the National Association of Automobile Museums in the United States.

Along with food & travel writer and photographer Larissa Milne, he writes the “Field-Tested Travel Tips” column and feature articles for the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Their travel blog at Changes In Longitude won a Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Silver Award for Best Travel Blog.

Their articles have appeared in National Geographic’s Intelligent Traveler, USA Today,  AAA World, Go Magazine, Serious Eats and other media outlets, while their off-beat travels to far-flung destinations like North Korea have been featured in Smithsonian.

After 20+ year business careers, in 2011, Larissa and Michael quit their jobs, sold their house, gave away their possessions and took off from their hometown of Philadelphia to travel around the world with a Rocky statue for what they thought would just be a year.

However, during that year they had a lot of free time on their hands and developed new careers as writers while they created the popular “A Year and a World” column about their journey for the Philadelphia Inquirer. After adapting to a simpler, nomadic lifestyle (hey, writers don’t get paid much) they are still on the road with no permanent address and now call the world their home.
