Profile Information

Are you connected to the tourism/travel/hospitality industries or travel media in any way? If so, please specify how (kindly include any relevant company names/Web sites!).
I have a book in pre-publishing hell called Bocas Time. It is about an adventure driving from Big Sur California to Bocas Del Toro Panama.
I ended up living in Bocas for four years, and the book lampoons it pretty well.

I am blogging my experience here. You can find my writing at
Please subscribe, I promise not to bore you.
On which destinations & travel topics can you advise members especially well?
Panama, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, the UAE. Topics? How to use a bidet.
What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
Other travel / language expertise?
Making border officials laugh to lighten up their day.

You seem like quite a character, my friend -- and I mean that as a total compliment! If you have any meaty travel-themed humor pieces, we'd we happy to consider them for our blog. Not to mention coverage of Panama, UAE, etc.
