Christina Ammon has penned travel articles for The Oregonian, the San Francisco Chronicle, Condé Nast and many other publications. Her penchant for odd story angles has had her snuggling with stray dogs in Mexico, dining at truckstops in France, and tracking down wineries in Morocco. She occasionally teaches a writing workshop called 'Deep Travel' at the legendary Shakespeare & Company bookstore in Paris, France. When not traveling, Christina Ammon lives in Ruch, Oregon where she writes, sips wine, and paraglides (although not at the same time!).
