Meet All-Travel Affiliate Ralph Grizzle, Cruise Review and Blogger!
Ralph began his journalistic career at the age of 32, following the conclusion of my early “sabbatical decade.” From 1980 through 1990, He bicycled across America, pedaled through Europe and island-hopped the South Pacific. After backpacking through Bali, bussing through Java, hopping a boat to Singapore and crossing Malaysia to Thailand, he flew into Burma, tramped to Dhaka and endured a 32-hour train ride from calamitous Calcutta to bustling Bombay. From there, he hopped a plane for Greece and traveled to Switzerland before returning home, where he settled, quite naturally, into a career of travel writing — with a bachelor of arts in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Today, he produces tons of content for his sites, avidcruiser.com and rivercruiseadvisor.com.
His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and numerous consumer magazines. The North American Travel Journalism Association, awarded my article, Ship Shape, which appeared in the September 2005 issue of Hemispheres, in the category of “Best Cruise Writing.” He has also authored four books, including 'Remembering Charles Kuralt,’ a biography that Publisher’s Weekly called ‘a sweet and lovely homage, a welcome commemoration.'
