Welcome to my blog, Deeper Skies. Deeper Skies is a resource for people planning trips. The destinations l profile are relatively obscure and not easy to obtain information about. Many of them are far away, like Mozambique, the Republic of Georgia and Colombia, while others are closer to home, like weekend getaways around the Bay Area. In every case, the goal is to introduce you to destinations that are probably new to you and to inspire you to consider these places when planning your next trip.
For my inaugural week, I will post three entries: one on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week. These entries will lay the framework for the way I approach travel and analyze the places I visit. The first entry will explain what I look for in a good hotel, the second will outline how I decide where to eat when I travel and the third will describe how I prepare for trips.
After these first three entries, I will post one entry a week with recommendations for places I have traveled to in the past or places I am currently visiting. When I’m in the midst of a trip, my entries will be in the form of short narratives and photos designed to evoke the places as I experience them. The rest of the time, my entries will be practical and informative, in the form of suggested itineraries, country overviews and specific recommendations for hotels and restaurants that blew me away.
Starting November 23, 2013, I will be traveling for four weeks, first through the Martian landscapes and salt flats that lie at the intersection of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile and then to Easter Island. I will be blogging live from my trip (one entry a week) so stay tuned!
