Escaping her native Mississippi's summer heat, Kate spent ten summers in the relatively cool mountains of North Carolina. It was there, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, she cultivated her love of the outdoors, learning backpacking, rock climbing, and whitewater skills. In addition to backpacking, canoeing, and kayaking along much of the Appalachian mountain chain, Kate spent two summers exploring several ranges in Alaska and Canada on foot and on water. She also has extensive backpacking and rafting experience in the Rocky Mountains. She is also a PADI-certified diver and a decent skier (for a gal from Mississippi). Kate earned her master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, and worked for Backpacker magazine before joining as an editor in 2006.

Lacy is an editor at

Her latest adventures include running in the 200-mile Hood-to-Coast relay in Oregon and exploring every inch of her current hometown of D.C. Jennifer's goal in life is to grow old with some good stories to tell and to eat a lot of great food along the way. Jennifer works at as a marketing communications specialist.

People may have various reasons for travelling from one place to another ranging from family holiday, business or honeymoon trip. However varied the reason may be, there is always a wish within you to save some money on travel. If you save more money then you will have plenty of cash during the travel. This makes it necessary to look for one company that offers cheap flights, travel insurance,holidays and touring bargains,rent a car, cruises, vacations,hotels. People have turned more to air travel because they offer cheap and affordable flights.

Sure these are just but great people. I've learnt a lot from their contributions.

Hi All ----
You all have very interesting bios. I am between jobs at the moment and decided to try to do something more in line with my interests.

I have lots of experience living and travelling overseas and I am a writer. Do any of you have any advice on how I can break in to travel writing? Or any other travel related field?

I would appreciate any feedback you could give.

Thanks to all the contributors. I am from Sydney, Australia.

Hi from Dublin / Ireland.
It's great to put a face to all the helpful contributors.
For any Dublin visitors there's a helpful site called Hidden Dublin
Keep up the great work!
