I made this list! I am grateful to all who voted for me and helped spread the word. A big congratulations to all who made the list, all writers that inspire me with their adventures. I've admired Peter Greenberg & Johnny Jet for years, followed NatGeo's Digital Nomad Andrew Evans around the world this year, and have enjoyed discovering the others on the list.
If you're not familiar, Christopher Elliott is a journalist, nationally syndicated columnist, and National Geographic Traveler's consumer Advocate. His writing is always thought-provoking, original, and smart.

I'm on my way back to Arizona for Christmas-cannot wait to be back. Six months is too long for me to go without seeing the mountains and Valley of the Sun.
