CNN & Publishing Update

My Latest article for CNNGo is now online. It discusses my road trip in the central highlands last year. Click here to view it. Update: As of today (21/01) the story is featured on the top of the front page of

Vietnam and Angkor Wat (EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE) My new book, DK Eyewitness Vietnam, is now available. I must admit I was a little disappointed to be credited as a London staff assistant after fact-checking/updating the entire edition myself here in Vietnam, but hopefully they can correct the credit in the next printing. The book looks good though the photos could stand to be freshened-up a bit.

Laos and Cambodia Insight Guide (Insight Guides) Soon to be available is Insight Guides Laos and Cambodia. I haven't seen the copy yet myself but my mom says its nice. I evaluated the book, proposed changes for the whole volume, and then updated the Cambodia section myself (minus Angkor)
