I write this from Croatia’s pinnacle of chic, the island of Hvar. During the course of my latest silence, I’ve spent one week in Croatia researching the next edition of the Lonely Planet guidebook. It included an incredible day on Vis (pictured), one of my favorite islands in the entire country and the world. It has been be a busy seven days and will continue to be hectic through late July, as I need to traverse half the country. So that may mean some gaps between blog posts, as work takes precedence.
In the meantime, thought I’d share some of my recently published travel articles and mentions in the media. Back in February, I visited South Africa and wrote a couple of articles about the trip. One, an interview with a lovely Cape Town resident, Ronel Stevens, was published in amNew York. A feature article outlining my eight-day stay in South Africa appeared in the May issue of New York Resident magazine. Last week, a piece about the music scene of Cape Town came out in Electronic Beats, a quarterly lifestyle publication distributed for free around Europe.
I recently mused about solo travel for a new offshoot of MSN, a website called Womanity that focuses on the issues currently affecting women globally. I was interviewed for Forbes, in an article about ways to save money on summer vacations. Lastly, check out my recently added bio on Lonely Planet. For photos from my trip to Thailand back in April, visit my gallery. More travel articles are in the works, about my recent stay in Mexico City and the current sojourn in Croatia.
