  • Why I Write Travel Stories. With an Emphasis on Story.

    There's a reason travel stories have been around for generations. No, make that, centuries. Before Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love. Before Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods. There was Twain's The Innocents Abroad. And before that the Journals of Lewis & Clark. Across the pond, the list includes Robinson Crusoe, Around the World in 80 Days and continues back in time to The Travels of Marco Polo, written in the 13th century. Travel narratives persist, because stories are encoded in our culture, in our DNA. We will always tell stories, whether it be in a printed book, in 140 characters on Twitter, or as a blog post.

Because sometimes the weather report on my iPhone doesn’t come anywhere near communicating the exact nature of “Eighty degrees and sunny.”

  • Readying to Kayak Napali Coast

    Destination: Kauai

    Napali Coast, Kauai, HawaiiOne month from today, I will spend five days kayak-camping along Napali Coast. That means, I have 30 days to get in shape. The trek will involve kayaking 17 miles along the majestic Napali Coast, one of Hawaii's most scenic vistas. We will explore sea caves and dip into waterfalls. We will gawk at the line-up of cliffs that gives this coastline its name--Napali translates to English as "the cliffs." One month from today, I will spend five days kayak-camping along Napali Coast, and that means, I have 30 days to get in shape.
