The Hater’s Guide to Eat, Pray, Love

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve signed on as a freelancer for CNNGo. While not a regular contributor, I will be occasionally writing articles for their fun Asia-based travel site. My first assignment was a review of the movie version of Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller Eat, Pray, Love. While I enjoyed the book, I thought the movie was a disaster and that it didn’t do justice to Gilbert’s story.

The article went up yesterday, so please go check it out and comment away!

This also marks the first time I’ve been paid to write anything other than a legal contract, and the first time I’ve worked since I quit my job in 2008. It’s quite the milestone for me! While it’s only one article, it remains a wonderful way to cap off these last few years of travel and a whole new audience to write for.

Thanks, as always, for reading.
