Professional travel writer Barbara Beckley likes to see the world with fun and flair. Barbara started out as a newspaper feature writer, then vacationed on a Windjammer cruise in the Caribbean and never looked back. She’s lived in England and in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she was on air with both the CBS and NBC radio affiliates and visited just about every Caribbean island. Barbara then ran away to sea as the social hostess aboard cruise ships in the Caribbean, South Pacific, Mexico, and Alaska.
Barbara is based in Los Angeles and covers the world, with a special love for Florida, Palm Springs, the South Pacific, Asia Pacific, and Mexico. Intriguing – often offbeat and always with plenty of fun-in-the-sun, natural adventure, shopping and happy hours – Barbara loves to share the world as she experiences it. Her stories appear in the Los Angeles Times special sections, Chicago Tribune, Alaska Airlines in-flight magazine, Association News magazine, and travel agent and meeting trade publications. She is the editor of Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope eMagazine at Travelscope; blogs for Babs in Traveland, and Visit Palm Springs. Barbara is a long-time member of the American Society of Travel Writers (SATW).
