Experiential & International Traveler, Dave's Travel Corner

Dave's Travel Corner


Dave founded Dave's Travel Corner, an International travel community, in 1996. He enjoys the outdoors, writing, photography, backpacking, mountain climbing, meeting people, the Internet and experiencing other cultures. What could possibly combine all these varied interests....why, travel of course! Dave is most at home in Bangkok, Los Angeles, the Napa Valley or California's Eastern or far Northern Sierra Nevada mountains.

One day in 2006 he naively decided he would try to visit, taste with and write about every single winery in the Napa Valley, California. An intense endeavor, he has now completed more than 700 visits and reviews of Napa producers for his Napa Wine Project. His first book titled 'The Freeways of Los Angeles' was published in 2010. Not the best seller he was hoping for - total sales haven't yet exceeded three.

He is a big proponent of experiential travel, valuing experiences far above "things".

Ownership of most things is overrated. Ownership of worldly experiences is not.

Perspective is the most important word in travel. Sometimes those who grow up in an urban environment don’t have the perspective that one has who grows up in the country and vice versa. Both perspectives are equally important and a person who deeply understands both and is comfortable in both environments is exceedingly rare.
