Best Of

While I'm proud of everything I've written here on, in my opinion the entries below capture some of the most poignant lessons, powerful memories (both good and bad), and vivid characters from my travels around the world. Most importantly to me as a writer, I feel these entries also showcase some of my best storytelling.
