Elizabeth with Jay Leno


I love talking about travel and I’m not shy!

I’ve spoken at writers’ conferences, travel shows, and travel industry gatherings. I’ve also conducted workshops for travelers, and for ten years I taught travel writing at the University of California San Diego. I’m very comfortable being interviewed on a wide variety of travel topics, and I really enjoy interacting with fellow travelers and travel industry colleagues.


WomensRadio-logo-280x150The Gathering Road on the Women’s Radio Network: I’ve done lots of radio interviews. They’ve all been fun, but I especially enjoyed this one about authentic luxury travel.  Host Elaine Masters asked all the right questions and skillfully guided the conversation.

Over the years, I’ve made many valuable travel connections online. Of these, Van Nguyen is one of the most significant.  Our friendship grew out of a discussion about luxury travel in a LinkedIn group. We recently met face-to-face for the first time when he visited the U.S. to promote his business Vietnam Alive. It was my great pleasure to introduce him at the meeting.
