Don George is the Editor at Large for National Geographic Traveler, as well as a Special Features Editor for Gadling. He's the former editor of the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle. the founder and former editor of the Wanderlust section of Salon.com, and the Global Travel Editor at Lonely Planet. He’s the author of the lonely planet guide to travel writing and most recently the editor of An Innocent Abroad, Lonely Planet’s most recent collection of travel stories from some amazing people, some of whom I’m lucky enough to call friends.
In this two-part conversation, Don shares his beginnings as an aspiring poet, a pilgrimage to Paris to follow in the footsteps of great writers, and his transformation into a travel writer. In it, we explore what it means to live profoundly, how travel can make that easier to achieve, and how to uncover the stories that are waiting for you to tell.
