Coming up: my travel writing class for Catapult this month. Also, excited to lead two Street Wisdom sessions at Adventure Travel World Summit in Tuscany in Oct.

Lonely Planet Portugal video

Back in the spring, I went from Lisbon down to the Algarve in the south of Portugal to shoot a Lonely Planet video on the town of Portimão. I was a nervous wreck working with an actual crew for the first time ever, in a town I had never been to and knew nothing about. Miraculously, the result turned out quite fun, despite my bad attempts at Portuñol.

The video just went up a couple of days ago so I thought I’d share, for a few minutes of your entertainment and a dose of shameless self-promotion. To watch it, click here.
