I got my first big breaks as a travel writer. Indeed, my first 10 or 20 or so published pieces were all about travel.
Partially, this was because of my voracious interest in travel. Partially, it was because I knew the subject so well.
But mostly, it’s because early on I was willing to work for cheap.
As you can imagine, many of the sites I wrote for in the late ‘90s and early 2000s are now defunct. However, the odd one here or there still lingers. Places like GoNomad and International Living.
Some of my favorite writing for extinct sites I now host here. You can find it below.
And while I seldom do travel writing anymore, it’s not for lack of interest. Indeed, I’d love to get back into it.
Usually, it’s for lack of income. If I could find work that I wouldn’t go broke doing, I’d jump on it in a heartbeat.
