Lucky 13 Interviews

The Lucky 13 interview series is basically an irreverent¬†set of questions, 13 of course, to some of the most interesting people I have ever met — travelers, travel bloggers, and others in the travel industry. Everyone on this page shares a passion for travel and educating and entertaining others.

Their answers to my offbeat questions veer from funny to serious and everywhere in between.

This is a list, most recent to first interviewed, of my Lucky 13 interviews. You can click through to the interview by the links on their names. On each page, you will find links to their websites and their Twitter handles. I hope you enjoy.
