In addition to my day job here at the hostel, I do a bit of travel writing. My latest story can be found in "Italy from a Backpack," an anthology published this month by Pearson Venture Group as part of their “From a Backpack” series. My story, “The Way of Love,” details my adventures finding romance while visiting Italy’s Cinque Terre region.
Here’s a quote from series editor Mark Pearson: “We get the thrill of living vicariously through someone else’s travels—enjoying fond memories if we have traveled, and getting inspired if we haven’t—and we also learn, through the hindsight these travelers provide, wisdom about what to do and what not to do when we actually get there. The books serve as a tantalizing foretaste of what awaits us, and as an escape from our daily lives; a refreshing break from the ordinary.”
The book has a lot of fun stories, and you can find it where fine books are sold, online at Amazon.com, or if you’re visiting Redwood Hostel, just ask me if you can peruse my copy.
