Welcome to SKJ Travel ... my narrative travel blog where you can join me vicariously in adventures around the world. I tell my stories through both words and photographs. If you're joining me on a mobile phone, click HERE to quickly access the archive and essays. People say to me all the time, "You should write a book about your travels." Well, my friends, this is essentially it. And in this age, an online blog is easier, displays a bajillion more photos, needs no publisher, and often reaches a broader audience than in print. Unlike a formal book or essay, though, I'm mostly just writing casually off the top of my head, but I hope, dear readers, you will feel as if I'm having a conversation with you.  In the archives you'll find personal posts from some of my travels. To read my more formal articles and documentaries visit one of the blue buttons above or see the Travel Essays section (the bubble below the archive bubble).  Friday Photos are updated weekly, and Tuesday Tales are updated sporadically. You can follow SKJ Travel on social media at:

Most recent feature entry: "Memoir of Pirabas, Brazil. Part 3:  children, school and a burial plot" Memoir from my first volunteer expedition — an anthropological survey in Brazil. What we learned about the school in Pirabas, cute kids we met and the most melancholic interview. 
Read my recent article for Statesider, "The Road to Columbine Heaven." I know where to find amazing wildflowers, but should I tell you where to find them?
