Spud Hilton is the former Travel Editor of The San Francisco Chronicle, where in the past 18 years he has written about, reported on and been hopelessly lost in destinations on six continents. His attempts to divine, describe and defy the expectations of places -- from Havana's back alleys to Kyoto's temples to the floor of a hippie bus in Modesto -- have earned 13 Lowell Thomas Awards, the standard for travel journalism. Those skills and experiences now go into consulting, workshops and keynote speeches aimed at reaching different audiences and changing the way we look at travel's tired cliches.
