Yay! Our #Vines Made It Onto The San Francisco Chronicle

Travel Vines: Bethany Salvon and Randy Kalp of Beers and Beans.

I’ve been a fan of the Chronicle since my undergraduate days at San Francisco State University in the early 2000s. At that time, the paper was a staple in my life. Whether I was on the MUNI, eating in a Mission taqueria, or hunkered down at a bar on Ocean Avenue, it always seemed to be there. I saw the demise of the Chronicle’s old-school composing room when X-Acto knives, wax machines and light boards…

Yah – We were interviewed by Europe Traveler!

Though, I understand where they’re coming from, heck, I had the same apprehensions. Admittedly, I was naive and, at…

Iceland – Photo Essay on

Before traveling to Iceland I spoke with the awesome guys over at and decided to shoot a photo essay for them on Iceland. Iceland was absolutely beautiful and I have been specifically waiting to release many photos from that part of the trip until Travel Squire had made their choices. It was tough choosing which photos to go with but I think they did a great job and picked out some great shots! If…

Why I Wish I Traveled Long Term In My 20’s (and 9 Reasons You Should).

In an effort to catch up on some of my published articles I am posting what became a pretty popular article over at Emily’s website – a few months ago. Emily’s website is geared more towards the 20 something traveler and even though I am in my 30’s I had a great piece that I wanted to write about.
