Thanks for visiting - I hope you'll find something of interest on
the site (and if there's a particular aspect of travel you'd like
me to write about, please do tell me - like all writers, I'm
always hungry for ideas!).
This website started in the dark days
of 2001, immediately after 9/11. Since that humble and
inauspicious start, the site has slowly grown and the number of
readers of the free weekly newsletter has similarly grown, with
new content being added most weeks.
As the content on the website grows,
so too is the number of daily visitors, our position in search
engine results, and our acceptance as a bona fide industry
commentator. The website and I are now regularly used as a
source and resource by newspapers and magazines big and small,
from 'newspapers of record' such as the New York Times down to
small regional weeklies.
We've also done television and radio
interviews, again ranging from small local stations to national
network prime time features (most recently, in Feb 2007, an
interview on the PBS McNeil/Lehrer News Hour - if interested you
can view it here, either low
resolution 8.5MB or
higher resolution 34MB - the interview starts after a 2'45"
introduction by Judy Woodruff if you want to skip ahead) and
even international news (BBC International Television broadcast
in April 2006).
I've created a
mini-autobiography that selectively tells a bit of who I am, where I've come from and what I've done. Here also is a page
about speaking and consulting
services I can offer you. And here's a page that
explains our editorial policies.
Talking about editorial policies, if
you'd like to write for the site, here's what you need to know
about our Writer Guidelines.
Lastly, here's information if you'd
like to advertise on the site or in the newsletter.
