My travel articles have been inspired from almost every corner of the world – just South America to go! Some are long, some short, but all written based on the people I’ve met, the sights I’ve seen, and predicaments I’ve found myself in.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Please comment and share your thoughts with me!
