About Peggy


Travel. Find your moment of perfect place.

Peggy Newland was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts and writes about her travels around New England and beyond for various publications, including feature stories for the Nashua Telegraph. In addition, she is a practicing psychotherapist specializing in natural approaches to anxiety management.

In 2001, she published a memoir, “The Adventure of Two Lifetimes,” which chronicled two cross-country bicycle adventures… her mother’s 1956 trip on a three speed Schwinn and her own in 1996 on a 24 speed. Both trips began at Rockefeller Center in New York city with interviews on the Today Show. She has also had many essays published about this trip including one in a Chicken Soup anthology about mothers and daughters.

Peggy loves to travel in and around the natural wonders of New England with her husband and daughter. For years, many of her adventures also included her dog, Buster, whenever the accommodations permitted. Now that Buster has passed on she is currently working on a collection of essays called, “Buster’s Guide to Therapy: what my dog taught me about life.” Her dog chronicles will continue with the additional of Lucy the Lab in September 2017.
