Travel writing debut!

from my trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge in China

One of my travel stories was featured in Intelligent Travel, a blog operated by National Geographic Traveler magazine.

Go here to see my winning entry.

Read the complete original story in my blog archives.

I'm amazed, since I didn't expect anything. I saw the contest when I was surfing the Internet late one night. The odds were against me, since the organizers were probably deluged with entries. Finally I decided, "What the hell, I'll send in something from my blog."

These stories are meant for my friends, so I wonder what a larger audience will think of my writing. Special thanks to my friends for reading my stories for this long! Your encouragement is what keeps me going.
