Wandering Educators Celebrates a Year!

It is remarkably appropriate that I am writing this post from an eco-lodge in Costa Rica, for this is exactly the type of cultural and educational travel endorsed by Wandering Educators, who are celebrating their first anniversary today with lots of new features (including my review of Otalo, the vacation home rental supersite) and wonderful giveaways. Hint, hint, look for all the Roaring Forties Press titles, including both of mine. Comment throughout the day and you'll be sure to come up with something fantastic.

Looking for good Costa Rican literature

I am thrilled to be headed to Costa Rica next week to explore sustainable and meaningful travel (I'm also writing a book review of Lonely Planet's Code Green -- stay tuned at, and am looking for suggestions on Costa Rican literature to bring. I am interested in novels, poetry, drama - engaging nonfiction -- you name it!

Thanks -- I'll send you a postcard!

About the Precipice

On the eve of my fortieth birthday, I am thinking about the path I want to take for the next forty years.
