Update: Fall/Winter 2006-2007

Friends and vagabonders, 2006 has been a busy year for me, both in terms of traveling and writing.

Update: Spring/Summer 2006

Friends and vagabonders, 2006 is keeping me busy with writing and writing assignments — perhaps most notably my new weekly gig as the “Traveling Light” columnist at Yahoo! News.

Update: Fall/Winter 2005-2006

Friends and vagabonders, 2005 proved to be a busy year for me, with travels and sojourns in New Orleans, England, northern Kansas, France (where I was the summer writer-in-residence at the Paris American Academy), Greece, California, and Mexico.

Friends and vagabonders, Fall promises to be an exciting season for me this year, as I will be departing to drive across the Americas as part of a Land Rover-supported expedition that will eventually drive around planet Earth along lines of longitude. The name of this expedition (and nonprofit organization) is “Drive Around the World”…

Update: Summer 2003

Friends and vagabonders, My latest update is short and sweet, in large part because I’ve been posting most of my new information over at my weblog. This summer I’ll be splitting time between Thailand (where I’ve been writing my second book) and Paris (where I’ll be teaching the travel writing section of a creative writing…
