TEDxBoulder 2013 Talk on Purposeful Travel:

Travel, for many of us, has become a safe, sanitized, and predictable practice, when it should be more about spinning the globe, jumping off cliffs, and eating the worm. Travel writer Joshua Berman speaks about ways to make travel a more purposeful, transformative experience—like it was meant to be!

If you are an editor or producer, I have a story for you:

I can provide feature articles, destination/service pieces,or travel narratives, accompanied byimages from my stock of Central America and Colorado photos.

I am fluent in Spanish and specialize in tourism for all budgets, adventure travel, environmental issues, and volunteering abroad. I am available to give talks about my books and travels with stories, slides, and live music. Contact me to arrange an event at your bookstore, fundraiser, or home.

I can also talk to your students or group about volunteering abroad, and help prepare them for their upcoming trip. If you are producing a television show or film in Nicaragua or Belize, I can serve as a location scout and fixer.
