Another feather in my sombrero

I'm sorry to do back-to-back posts where I'm tooting my own horn, but I'm just tickled pink about the fact that two of my travel articles were published simultaneously in two different travel magazines!

The Feb-Mar 2009 issue of Lifestyle Asia Travel magazinecontains yet another article about Mexico written by me. But while the one published last year focused on the capital, Mexico City, this one takes you out on a side trip to the Basilica de Guadalupe and the Teotihuacan ruins. They were most definitely major highlights of my trip to Mexico and I'm really happy I was given the opportunity to write about my experiences there.

So once again, if you see this cover (above) on the stands, grab a copy and let me know what you think. I'd love the feedback since I'm still a work in progress in the travel writing department. I'm currently working on a piece for LA Travel's summer issue (Apr-May), wait for it! :)

Thank you, Lifestyle Asia Travel! I'm honored to be writing for you.

My first post for 2009 & another article published!

I believe it's good juju to start my 2009 blogging with some awesome news on my part. I'm once again thrilled and over-the-moon that another article of mine has been published in the Jan/Feb '09 issue of Travelife! Yay! Toot-toot! :) (It was also this same time last year when my first ever article was published in the same magazine. )

It's a 6-page story I wrote about the road trip I took from San Francisco up to Vancouver, BC in the middle of last year along with some of the photos I took along the way. I plan to blog about that later (when I finally get cracking on the backlog of posts, a backlog that seems to have taken on a life of its own and is growing by the day!), but the article pretty much tells it all.

This issue is packed with lots of other exciting and entertaining travel tales about St. Petersburg, Kenya, and cooking lessons in Calabria, Italy among many others. So grab a copy when you can and let the writers take you away with them!

It's really such a thrill to see my name on print and to be able to share the things that make me happy. So I'm grateful once again to Terrie and Liza for giving me the chance to do so. :)
