About the Author

I’ve been traveling - as a career and a calling - since I was in my early twenties. I have lots of stories, (mis)adventures and viewpoints to share, and have been publishing this weekly blog since 2009. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it! And I love to get comments and feedback. Thanks!

Coming up in 2018!

Patagonia Plans are in the works for a fabulous adventure to Patagonia in Chile. Tentative dates are late November + first part of December, 2018.
