Mary Jo Manzanares

Highlights

MJ is in an ideal position to write about travel, since she's lucky enough to get paid to travel by proxy (she's a flight attendant, you see). Rather than let her fortune go to waste, MJ pens about her everything she encounters and is also the Travel Editor for PlanetEye Traveler.

Why Should MJ Become My New Favorite Writer?

MJ leaves no topic unexplored when writing about a location, and her culinary writing is always enjoyable. She also imparts great travel tips on a regular basis.

While it has always been a calling, Bruce launched himself into his travel writing career fully after teaching English in Sydney. To date, his written and photographic work has appeared in many mainstream magazines and newspapers around the world.

Why Should Bruce Become My New Favorite Writer?

Quite simply, Bruce's articles betray the fact that he's probably one of the nicest travel writers currently active. He works with a great deal of positivity and heaps of character - you could recognize his work even if the credits were hidden.

Dave

http://www.davestravelcorner.com/
Dave

Highlights

Perhaps the best travel writer to only have one name. Dave's personal travels have taken him around the world where he indulges his passions for writing, photography and mountaineering. His current project involves tasting wine at every producer in the Napa Valley (which will take just shy of ten years in total). Dave is also the founder of the brilliant Dave's Travel Corner web resource.

Why Should Dave Become My New Favorite Writer?

His own writing is a master class in good travel journalism, but his greatest gift to us is the aforementioned Dave's Travel Corner. It's a site renowned for its excellence and something every travel junky should visit and, subsequently, become lost in.

Top Picks:

Dive in and see why it's one of the best travel sites out there.

A Newfoundlandian, she is associate editor for the Matador Network, and has so far surveyed much of Europe and Mexico.

Why Should Candice Become My New Favorite Writer?

While her travel writing career is in its infancy, she clearly destined for great heights. Her blog is unreserved (to say the least), with political correctness always losing out to honest portrayals love, life and travel. A writer full of character and highly likable.

Top Picks:

We get the impression that Candice is on the verge of interesting times, and a lot of decision making.

Karen is an adventure traveler through and through. It is always a pleasure to experience her hardcore sporting activities (or high class living) vicariously through her words, as she has a gift for describing situations most of us will never find ourselves in.

Top Picks:

First time skydiving stories are ten-a-penny, but Karen's is the cream of the crop.
