So, I have been hanging out with Nomadic Matt for the first time in person during the last few weeks in Thailand and, surprisingly to the both of us, we have got along famously. It wasn’t always so. For quite some time, I had a feud with Matt — a […]
Keith is not only a travel blogging inspiration, he is a life inspiration and one of the few people that I believe has really researched and thought through the future awaiting those in the travel blogging profession. I have had a few chances to sit down and talk to Keith […]
Anthony, the Travel Tart, is funny. Simply and plainly funny. I became acquainted with him first on Twitter, because his tweets draw your attention immediately. He’ll have you in stitches with his combination of Aussie humor and slang, and his eternal desire to explore all that life has to offer. […]
Jessica recently interviewed me and I realized, in yet another example of my disorganization, that I hadn’t managed to get her on my list of interviewees yet. She has been an invaluable resource for me on multiple occasions, answering every question one could have on Italy (and other places) and […]
Audrey and Dan are a couple of the stalwarts of the travel blogging community and two of my favorites. I started following them years ago (they have been on the road since the end of 2006) and particularly love and admire their photography. They do these full 360 degree panorama […]
There have been a number of wonderful side benefits that have accrued from my quixotic Ultimate Train Challenge and other projects is meeting a few travel bloggers that I firmly believe are going to be lifelong friends. Nora Dunn has quickly ascended near the top of the list of bloggers that […]
Pauline Frommer comes from the first family of travel guides. Frommer’s guide books have been around longer than almost all of us have been walking this planet and they are the gold standard in guide books around today.
Beth and Randy are two of my favorite people, who also happen to be incredibly talented bloggers and photographers. Their website is slick, professional and heartfelt, and I hate them because their pictures are a lot better than mine. A lot better — which leads to some serious photo and […]
I had the chance to finally meet Diana in person, when I went through Vegas months ago on my way from California back home to Arkansas. We went out for drinks with Abby, the Jungle Princess, and had a huge time. She’s hilarious, fun, and has a ton of energy. […]
Globetrotting travel writer Lara Dunston has authored, contributed to and updated some 50+ guidebooks for Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, and…. a lot more… as well as published travel articles in magazines, newspapers and websites around the globe, from Wanderlust to National Geographic Traveler. Are you getting my overarching feelings of […]
Lauren Juliff is about to embark on her big round-the-world (RTW) trip in a few weeks, after finishing up her Masters in Physics at Royal Holloway. Yep, finishing up her Masters in Physics — beautiful, talented, and crazy smart. Like last weeks interviewee, Lindsay Hogg, Lauren is also incredibly sassy. […]
Easily winning the award for the most intentionally “in your face” interview yet in the Lucky 13 series, come meet the incredibly reserved, demure and standoffishly polite Lindsay Hogg. Lindsay and I have had more than a few insult war exchanges on Twitter and I have to say… tread lightly if you take her on. This tiny one has some sharp verbal fangs.
