My first National Geographic byline (about COVID, my new area of expertise)

P1510557National Geographic is one of those bylines that every writer covets. I’ve never had the guts to even pitch them, so was particularly pleased to have an editor reach out to me to write a piece on my unusual new area of expertise … COVID-19 and travel.

Here’s the article where I interviewed several COVID experts, aimed at answering key questions on the mind of Americans looking at domestic travel in summer 2020: Is it safe to travel now? It depends.

It was republished by Apple News, MSN (Is it safe to travel now? It depends) and MSN Australia (Is it safe to travel now? It depends).

So I guess I need to actually pitch Nat Geo now! :-)

More of my COVID articles (most published by Fodor’s on a variety of sub-issues like considerations before you travel and whether hotels or vacation rentals are safer) are on my Publications page and in this coronavirus post.

  1. Now that we seem to have entered another phase of the COVID pandemic, have you altered any of the provisions stated in your National Geo.article? What about testing? It seems difficult to enter certain states because of this requirement.
