Travel Writing

Please join me at my new blog Poptimistic—the fresh, frank, fun outlook on life. Like Oprah, my life has grown from a single TV show into an entire network.  Thanks to the success of Alphabet City, my award-winning humorous book and blog about my sitcom life, I’m thrilled to launch a new online network called Poptimisitic.  With that charming gay Mary Tyler Moore spirit you know and love, Poptimistic has even more room to explore a fun, fresh, frank approach to life.  So check out my line-up of shows about relationships, food, travel and culture, and start living a Poptimisitic life!

Jon Paul’s stories for Bon Appétit include a feature about Caribbean resorts in Jamaica and Virgin Gorda working with local farmers to improve access to organic produce, a round-up of Austin’s burgeoning farm-to-table movement, and an upcoming interview with acclaimed hotel and restaurant designer Adam Tihany.

For Condé Nast Traveler, he has written about a journey around Florida’s “Redneck Riviera” in a Mercedes, a “Day of the Dead” overnight camp out in a Mexico City cemetery, and secrets of the Appalachian Trail from Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey.  He has traveled the globe for the magazine—from Melbourne to Rio—reviewing numerous hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and spas—links below.  To watch video clips of Jon Paul on Condé Nast Traveler specials on the Travel Channel, click here.

Jon Paul is the travel expert for GayWeddings.com, the leading online resource for same sex commitment ceremonies.  He contributes a regular column called “Destination: Taste” about planning the perfect destination wedding as well as tips on romantic gay honeymoon spots.
