For the Travel Section of LA.com, I have written guides to Napa and Sonoma Valley, as well as a San Diego Hotels Guide.
Here is my humongous, though far from comprehensive, guide to Napa Valley in two parts:

Here is my guide to San Diego hotels, broken down into Coastal versus City listings:
In my new career as a freelance travel writer, I started out by submitting pieces on my trip to South America in October 2007 to a few different web sites. You can check them out here.
This is a hotel review and city guide of Buenos Aires: http://intravelmag.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=258&Itemid=10058
Here is another hotel review and city guide, of Santiago, Chile: http://www.vezeo.com/2007/11/26/view-the-andes-from-chiles-hip-hotel-del-patio/
And, finally, here is a review I wrote for HotelChatter.com as part of their VIP Reviewer Series. They asked me to write a review of one of my favorite hotels, so I chose the charming little Hotel Le Clos Medicis in Paris: http://www.hotelchatter.com/story/2008/9/16/14615/6774/hotels/Shhh_Don_t_Tell_Anyone_About_the_Hotel_Le_Clos_Medicis
Well, that's enough of my travel stories to throw at you for now. If you have a moment to read any of them, I'd love to know what you think!
