Those following my posts for Gadling might surmise correctly that most of my blogging is happening over there these days. I've been loving the association with Gadling, the friendliness of my fellow contributors, and the general spirit of the experience. I'm working on developing a few new series for Gadling, one of which, a Q&A series with travel industry insiders as well as travel writers and publishers, has already launched. Anyone who has developed an expertise within a particular travel industry or has honed a following as a travel writer, editor, or publisher should contact me.
I've got a few summer trips upcoming: a family visit to Portland, a Calgary-Winnipeg road trip with the inestimable Melissa Fondakowski followed by four nights in glorious Winnipeg, which I'll write up as a series for Gadling; a family trip to Chincoteague, Virginia; and a week with friends on Pelee Island, Ontario.
And then in September and October, I'll be embarking with Matt on what may end up as the most exciting journey ever, a round-the-world jaunt focused on the Southern Hemisphere, with stops in seven territories. This is a trip that we've been planning for four or five years. I'll be blogging about my experiences along the way for Gadling and will detail my itinerary in a post there when the time is right.
There are many more exciting things coming down the pike later this year, but I'll leave it at that for now.
