If intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac, a day working with Sally was like an oyster banquet at a lingerie party. As the project progressed we’d moved our chairs closer and closer together until, one afternoon, she was close enough to bite me.
His tales and essays appear in many print and online publications.
On Jeff Greenwald's first trip to Asia in 1979, he designed urban playgrounds for UNICEF and the Nepal Children’s Organization. Arriving several months later in Thailand during the Khmer civil war, he served as a volunteer water engineer at Khao-I-Dang--the largest of the Cambodian refugee camps.

that travel writer Jeff Greenwald hit his late thirties, he had covered more ground than Magellan, Marco Polo, and Columbus combined. But he also came to a sobering conclusion: airplanes had reduced his exotic explorations to a series of long commutes. His mission: to circle the earth without leaving its surface.

Greenwald has produced a travel book like no other. His tale of the journey is an armchair delight for its originality, humor, and striking prose. Right now I’m in the middle of Jeff Greenwald’s new book, Scratching the Surface. Jeff’s humorous and poignant best of compilation has officially kicked off my summer reading. Needless to say, I’m well past the first few chapters.

Published: 1997 Territory covered: Latin America, Asia, Africa In 1994, to commemorate his 40th birthday, Jeff Greenwald decides to travel around the world without getting on an airplane.

Jeff Greenwald was a travel journalist living in Oakland for about 10 years before his first blog was published. His assignments had taken him across the globe but he knew something was missing. He didn’t feel like a real traveler. He was all set to embark on this transforming journey late December 1993.
Jeff Greenwald brings the enormousness of the world to our minds and imagination. The best part of the book was his unannounced visit to the American expatriate-writer Paul Bowles in Tangier, Morocco. His visit (not his first) to Nepal and Tibet was a little overstated, but given his personal convictions, this is understandable.
His writing has appeared widely in print and online in such publications as The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Outside, and Salon. He lives in Oakland, California. Ещё. Shopping for Buddhas: An Adventure in Nepal.
