The travel bug bit Craig Zabransky early in life, and bit deep. In fact, his interest in travel has influenced every career move he's ever made. He accepted his first job because it included two weeks of training in London. Later, he became a global management consultant because it allowed him to live and work across Asia, Europe, Latin America and the US.

While on a year-long sabbatical from his job-a year spent traveling, naturally-Zabransky realized his interest in consulting had run its course. He was ready for a career that offered more creativity, freedom and flexibility. "While in Costa Rica, watching a majestic sunset with a pen in my hand and my journal open, I thought, why not travel writing," says Zabransky.
