THE 7 REASONS I LOVE THE G HOTEL, GALWAY, IRELAND
I’ve written and edited travel guides for AOL, TripAdvisor, Sherman’s Travel, The Atlanta Constitution-Journal, The Advocate, Explorer Publishing, The Out Traveler, OutCity, MTV’s Logo, Cruise One and dozens of other publications around the world. Here are a few I particularly liked putting together.
A 10,000 word guide to Dallas’ neighborhoods, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, and all-round splendidness. I also authored their Montreal and Toronto guides (see below).
Dallas, the Big D, wears many hats—not just a 10-gallon one, either. Embracing a flotilla of personalities—one minute a business titan, the next a Southern belle; sometimes urban hipster, sometimes quirky Bohemian—Dallas easily toggles between them all. But the city is always fanatic about sports. The home of five-time Super Bowl champions the Dallas Cowboys, the area got a new billion-dollar stadium in Arlington in 2009. The Super Bowl is set to call in 2011. The Texas Rangers play at the ballpark next door. Visiting a city known for business and football, it might surprise you to discover a steadily growing constellation of star chefs and acclaimed eateries, the most shopping malls per capita in the U.S., and an assured and often cutting-edge cultural scene.

A 10,000 word guide to Toronto’s neighborhoods, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, and all-round awesomeness.
A Toronto vacation offers the very best of Canada. If Vancouver is the pretty face of Canada and Montreal its bohemian soul, Toronto is the country’s warm, fast-beating heart. Canada’s largest city by far—the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is home to 5.5 million people—the city is the financial, commercial, social and artistic capital of the country. Exceptional theater, music, bar and restaurant scenes make Toronto travel an exhilarating option. Mere steps from the bristle of downtown’s gleaming skyscrapers, a more down-to-earth, laid-back air prevails. Made up of a patchwork of distinct neighborhoods—including five Chinatowns and two Little Italys—Toronto is the world’s most multicultural metropolis. In fact, half of Toronto’s population was born outside Canada, and there are 200 different ethnic origins represented, not to mention 130 languages and dialects spoken within city boundaries.
