Kind of an exciting time for one of my articles over at Ecoworldly. The article, titled “11 Extinct Animals That Have Been Photographed Alive“, has gone absolutely ballistic. It has somehow attracted well over 230,000 viewers since being posted, so I thought it’d be worth referring from here. Crazy!

If the content sounds depressing to you, wait until you get to many of the comments. You may find some cynical amusement in reading them. The internet is an amazing thing, but it sure can be a compository for idiocy too. Ah well. Check out the article!

The picture above shows the extinct Tasmanian Tiger, one of the 11 featured in the article.

The Guardian published another of my articles from Green Options Media, titled, “Can Bamboo Save Our Forests and Help End Poverty?“.

For future reference, you can succinctly keep updated with all of my articles with Green Options Media at my author profile here.

An article I wrote for EcoWorldly was just syndicated by The Guardian. If you check out the front page of their ‘Environment’ section, you can find my article there under ‘Comment & Analysis’. You can link directly to the article here, titled “Japan Airlines trial biofuels on 747 flights“.

You can also check out the original article here, which was titled, “Japan Airlines’ 747 Flies More Efficiently with Biofuels than with Jet-A Fuel“.

And make sure to keep up with all of my articles over at EcoWorldly and around the Green Options Media network.

As previously promised, the second edition of my short series on thinkers who understood inner travel has now been published over at Brave New Traveler. Predictably, it’s titled, “Five Eastern Thinkers Who Understood Inner Travel.”

Although as a fair warning, I’m quite discouraged by how it has been edited. My piece was the first article edited by their new editor, and the changes that were made by the editor were unnecessary, and they make the piece more simplistic and bland than it was originally written. Furthermore, there are a couple of grammatical typos which were actually edited in— not my doing (I wrote with a complaint and the errors still haven’t been corrected). So I apologize if it seems like the wit is ill-timed, or the paragraph transitions are awkward. Maybe you won’t notice because you didn’t see the original, but I wasn’t happy with it.

Nonetheless, you can check it out now and tell me what you think of the list. Who would you have listed? Oh, and I’m regretful to report, for those that took notice before, that it was more difficult to include female thinkers on an Eastern list than it was with the Western one, but I did look for them– I promise!

Continuing my escapades into travel writing, I’ve got a couple of articles posted over at the Australia Travel Guide at WhyGo.com.

Both of the articles are up there as features right now. One is titled “Hiking Uluru, and Why You Probably Shouldn’t“, and the other is titled Australia’s Rainforests: Daintree National Park“.

The idea behind WhyGo.com is to offer guides that go beyond just the How to‘s of travel; but to answer the Why‘s too, to inspire travel. That makes writing for them particularly enjoyable. I get to write passionately about the places and the adventures I’ve lived and loved.

For those that don’t know, I studied abroad and lived in Australia for a time, and I’ll be continuing duties at the site as a regular writer and guide for Australian travel. I’ve had an itch to get back to Oz since the day I left, but writing these articles is making it downright irresistible. Unfortunately a ticket to Sydney is just not practical right now, but at least the writing offers some consolation to my needy imagination.

Check out the articles, there will be more on the way. And wander the site for some inspiration on wherever you want to go next.

Over at Brave New Traveler, a short article of mine has been published, titled “5 (Western) Thinkers Who Understood Inner Travel.”

This marks the beginning of a new foray for me, as I embark into doing more travel writing. In this case, I was still able to incorporate some of my philosophical knowledge, so the transition shouldn’t be too abrupt.

Definitely check it out. I’m probably going to write a companion piece to this one on Eastern thinkers, so if you have someone you’d like to see on that list, let me know!

What 5 Western thinkers would you have included?
