Adventure Travel at About.com

One of my great passions in life is travel. I love to visit new places, meet new people, experience new cultures, and see things that few other people ever get the chance to see. I'm particularly passionate about adventure travel, and all the amazing possibilities that it affords those who are looking for unique and active experiences. That is why I am so excited to announce that I have taken over the Adventure and Outdoor Travel section at About.com, where I will be covering this segment of the travel market in variety of ways, including tips for travelers, gear reviews, adventure travel news, and much more.

I only just took over this position, and I've written my first piece, which asks "Just What is Adventure Travel?" As the new editor of this site, I thought it was appropriate to launch my tenure there by sharing a bit of my philosophy about travel in general. If you read this blog regularly, that philosophy will probably not come as much of a surprise. In short, I encourage people to embrace life, chase their passions, and see the world around us, whether that is in your backyard, or on the far side of the planet. To me, all travel is adventure travel, some of it just happens to be a bit more active, and challenging than other forms.

As I add more content to the About.com pages, I'll regularly share some of the postings here as well, as I'm sure that many of you will enjoy a lot of the topics I'll be covering there. About.com is one of the top sites on the Internet for finding information on a lot of different topics, and I'm honored that they see me as an "expert" on adventure travel who can contribute something of value. The About pages will be undergoing a redesign soon too, which will bring a fresh, modern look to the site. I'm excited to be a part of this new push, and I can't wait to interact with the readers there.

Life is definitely an adventure, and I'm ready for this new opportunity to get underway.
