By day, we’re marketing geeks. Computer nerds. Quirky writers and artists. And damn proud of it!

But after hours, our team members shed their marketing capes – and pursue all kinds of cool Hobbies, Interests and Talents (we call them HITs for short).

Here’s what Maggie Hinterberger, a Social Media Marketing Advisor, is into:

HIT: Travel

Back Story: Bitten by the Travel Bug

I discovered my passion for travel in my 20’s. My husband and I prefer experiences over gifts, so we try to travel as often as we can. Though we’ve only been at it for a few years, we’ve taken over a dozen trips together to places like Atlanta, Las Vegas, Key West, Charlotte and Chicago – even Aruba and Nassau!

My husband I enjoy traveling so much that we’ve made it a goal to visit a few new places every year. The next trip we are planning is to Alaska.

Why am I a travel fanatic?

My favorite thing about traveling is learning. Everywhere my husband and I visit, we experience new things and places: discovering facts about an area’s history; trying new foods and activities; and immersing ourselves in the local culture.

My penchant for traveling (and dislike of waiting in airports) has also taught me how to pack for any trip in only a carry-on suitcase! It’s a handy skill – believe me.

Finally, my travel experiences have given rise to a new interest for me: photography. And while I may not be an expert at it yet, it’s a lot of fun and a great way to capture the memories we make on our trips!

My favorite destination thus far?

That’s an easy one: Maine. We really enjoyed visiting Boothbay Harbor, Acadia National Part, Portland and many of the lighthouses along the coast. It was absolutely beautiful, and we enjoyed the state so much that we hope to make it back for another trip.

If you ever go, be sure to visit Jordan Pond and have a popover at the lodge!
