Max Pankow

Max joined the TBB team in early 2023. When she’s not using her sleuthing skills to test, analyze and research everything under the sun, you may find her writing about her crazy adventures and travels to over 50+ countries.

As an avid adventure junkie, solo female traveler (before it was cool), and misfit whose motto is “do it for the story,” there’s almost nothing Max will say no to! Her best travel achievement was buying a one way ticket to SE Asia in 2016 and never returning home. These days you can find Max surfing the waves of her favorite country, Indonesia.
