Pencil this in: National Geographic Travel‘s Offbeat Observer Robert Reid will be guest hosting our next live Twitter chat–at 12:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 17.
For those who aren’t familiar with his work or personality, Reid investigates the whys and hows of how we experience the world and encourages wanderlusters to follow his lead by “traveling like travel writers.”
What does that mean? In Reid’s case, it means using his own hobbies and interests to build trip itineraries and provide a framework for his unique brand of travel storytelling. He’s been to Mountie boot camp, followed Billy Joel’s lyrics (literally), counted mustaches in Siberia, and used a Monopoly board as a map to explore Atlantic City.
Formerly an NYC-based Lonely Planet editor specializing in the U.S., Reid now lives–with messier hair–in Portland, Oregon, where he tackles topics and trends–from the power of walking to Woody Allen’s New York City–for Nat Geo on Intelligent Travel.
