A veteran journalist and seasoned traveler, Bill Davis was travel editor

years and combined travel and lifestyle writing for an
additional 10 years. He is now both an accredited correspondent for The
Globe and a freelance writer contributing to other publications.
Bill has traveled to nearly 100 countries and written more than 1000 travel feature articles on a wide range of subjects. International travel destinations visited often and written about in depth include Britain, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, Eastern Europe, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America. In the United States New England is a particular specialty; so also are the neighboring Atlantic provinces of Canada.
As a lifestyle writer, Bill has written authoritatively about art, music, archeology, rail travel, food and wine, cruises, cultural events, health spas and spiritual retreats, hiking, winter sports, and offbeat, budget and luxury travel.
He has twice been awarded medals in the prestigious Lowell Thomas travel writing competition sponsored by the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation and twice received the Government of Mexico's La Pluma de Plata, an award given for outstanding feature articles about Mexico. In addition, he has been the recipient of awards in feature and travel writing contests sponsored by the Canadian Government Office of Tourism, the Pacific Area Travel Association, the Travel Industry Association of America, and United Press International.
With his wife, fellow travel writer Christina Tree, Bill is co-author of "Massachusetts: An Explorer's Guide" (Countryman Press;) and "How New England Happened" (Countryman Press.) He is also author of a guide to Finland (Berlitz) and has contributed to a number of airline, travel club, city, and regional magazines.
