Articles and Columns by Tim Leffel

Tim Leffel is an award-winning travel writer who has circled the globe three times and has dispatched articles from five continents. His stories have appeared in a wide variety of publications, including some that managed to stay in business even after his articles appeared, such as Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel,, USA Today,, International Living, and the South American Explorer.

Leffel is the author of classic The World's Cheapest Destinations guide, now in its fourth edition. He is author of Travel Writing 2.0 — both in its book and blog incarnations — which we reviewed on our site as we consider it a very useful book for travel writers of all levels.

Tim publishes the award-winning Cheapest Destinations travel blog as well as an award-winner web magazine and its associated collaborative blog called Perceptive Travel, home to interesting and award-winning stories from some of the best travel writers on the planet, with stories featured in the Best American Travel Writing annual book series.

He now lives and writes from Mexico.
