Oradour-sur-Glane, France: Remember.
For decades, I've gathered impressions about Europe's experience with fascism in my travels. Like many of you, I have stood amid the physical remains of that dark period — the Anne Frank House, the WWII Normandy American Cemetery, the Valley of the F...

Video: Looking Back at my Response to Governor LePage About Pot
I was traveling through Michigan and North Dakota last week, on a mission to help legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana — and I felt like I was in a parallel universe, where this is still a controversial topic. Back home in Washington State, which vo...

Barnstorming My Way Through North Dakota and Michigan
What am I doing toting my hemp bag through Fargo, North Dakota? Helping that state realize that our wrongheaded laws against marijuana are causing more harm to our society than the plant those laws were designed to protect us from.     I spent last w...

Video: Road-Tripping Through the Upper Midwest to Help Legalize, Tax, and Regulate Recreational Marijuana
I just spent a week in Michigan and North Dakota, advocating for the end of the expensive, racist, and counter-productive prohibition on marijuana. Back in 2012, we voted to legalize recreational marijuana in Washington State. I'm proud of that vote ...

Keep on Travelin': Celebrating Travel Joy with Tattoos
Last year in Milwaukee, I had an unforgettable experience. I had just given a talk to an energetic and positive crowd at the Pabst Theater, and I was enjoying a fun atmosphere of pandemonium in the lobby. It's always a thrill to meet happy travelers ...

Video: Travel Thrills on the Cutting Room Floor
When it comes to our TV show, I tend to overpack. I love each corner of Europe — but there are only 30 minutes, or 3,000 words, in each episode. Invariably our episodes come in at 32 minutes or so, and I need to make the hard cuts. While it's painful...

The ‘Roadschooling' Family Traveling Around the World
I'm often inspired by families on the road. And this past summer on a ferry between Oban and Isle of Mull, I met the Kime family from Texas. The mom and dad (Sarah and Stuart) told me that they had realized that there is no better education or qualit...

Video: Travel as a Force for Peace
It was 1969, I was 14 years old, and one night my dad came home and said, "Son, we're going to Norway to see the relatives." I thought, "Stupid idea." A few days after arriving, I was sitting on the carpet with my cousins in Bergen watching Neil Arms...

Scrubbing the Script: Poop or Pope?
We lovingly fine-tune all our TV shows before they air — and on the final review this time around, producer Simon, editor Risa, and I caught an embarrassing flub that no one had noticed before. When I think about how close this came to being broadcas...
