Personal Update, New Published Links, Andalucia

It’s hard to believe it’s been two months since I’ve updated this blog, but much of that time was spent wedding planning and putting the final touches together for the big day. I’m happy to say that the event went off with nary a hitch (other than our own) two weeks ago tomorrow.

Just prior to my life-status change, I became the new editor-in-chief of TravelWorld International Magazine, published by the North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA); my first issue, on adventure and offbeat travel, will be out at the end of October.  I also accepted a number of freelance writing assignments, which kept me busy throughout the month of August and into early September, but I think they resulted in some decent clips, including:

My feature for Incentive on India’s new luxury train service, the Maharaja’s Express, is finally out too.

For most of the past two weeks, my husband and I have been traveling through Andalucia, Spain, and are now making our way through Morocco. Look for updates on both in the coming days. In the meantime, here are a few photos for a taste of our current adventure.
