Correspondent Crai Bower joins Paul to tak about fun in the sun in the winter. Crai talks about visiting Jamaica and how to have a great vacation beyond the all inclusive resorts that are so popular. He also talks about taking the family to Hawaii in the winter and the experience of playing golf below the snow capped peak of Mauna Kea. Here’s some background on Crai:
Crai S Bower began writing in a yellow, spiral notebook when he was fourteen. Today, he writes about diverse topics including 48 Hours in Montréal (Alaska Airlines Magazine), Top Cycling Towns (MSN.com) and” Bahamas’ Not Just for Pirates” (UP! Magazine). If he has a niche, it’s “adrenaline rushes that won’t kill you and end with a decent bottle of wine.” Bower thrives on the freelance life: teaming with creative agencies (ZAAZ, Saltmine, RMB Vivid), running a business and typing away in his Seattle studio. He maintains a diverse roster of journalism (travel, business, the arts, profiles) marketing copy (MSN, Expedia, Intel) and columns (AAAJourney.com). He can also be seen monthly on KCPQ-TV “This Morning News,” heard monthly as the travel commentator on NPR affiliate “KUOW Presents,” quarterly on KUOW Weekday and biweekly on the American Forces Network. A winner of several journalism awards, Bower is featured in the 2010 bestseller, “Seattle 100: Portraits of a City: Voices that Matter.”
Still, one facet of Bower’s life never changes- he starts most days spilling ink upon a journal page while trying not to spill tea upon his scarf.
