Graham Markel, former ele staffer, in Travel & Leisure, Accidental Extremist.

A message via Mr. Graham Markel:

Check It out! I officially hit the big time! I’m mentioned in Travel and Leisure (a major, well-respected travel magazine) for my contribution to the travel blog: Accidentalextremist.com.

Website Takes Readers on Extreme Adventures – Carry On – Travel + Leisure


I love that traveler-writer Rachel Robert’s struggles with her “FOMS” (Fear Of Missing Something); in “Beetle Bedlam,” she bargains emotionally with herself about whether to continue on a trecherous Croatian mountain road in a barely functional, glittery purple VW Beetle. I also couldn’t stop reading Brad Wetzler’saccount of hanging with hobbyist hobos and eating too much sausage in the Czech Republic, and was touched by Graham Markel’s slightly disturbing story of cliff jumping in Thailand. I haven’t read every entry, because I’m saving some for later.
