Thanks, Tony

“If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody.”
—Anthony Bourdain

I’d be lying if I said Anthony Bourdain ignited my love of travel. I fell head over heels long before I ever heard his name. But I’d also be lying if I said he hasn’t been a major source of inspiration. That he has. What a life he lived, at least on screen. As my friend Raleigh said today, “he had the best job in the world.”

Of course, what he was going through off screen, I can’t pretend to know or understand, and I don’t feel the slightest bit qualified to comment or speculate. I’ll just offer up a big, heartfelt thank-you for sharing your adventures—and your perspectives—with us.
