rt Ellsworth has spent a few years exploring, writing, and photographing worldwide. The former travel editor for the "National Post," "Estylo," "Flaunt," "Fashion Wire Daily" and "Detour," he has been writing for national magazines, newspapers and websites for nearly 10 years, where he has carved his own niche. A veteran columnist for the likes of "the Boston Globe," "Arena," "Elle," "FHM," "Vogue Australia," and "Travel & Leisure," his adventures have taken him across six continents, and include piloting a boat down the Amazon, fleeing an angry mob in Togo, hitchhiking across Australia, bungee jumping off Africa's largest bridge, bicycling across Cuba, and surviving an attempted coup in Haiti. Ellsworth currently lives in Hollywood, CA where he just finished working on ABC's "Off The Map," and is now trying to eke out a living as a screenwriter (and occasional actor) and continues to write about travel, beauty and entertainment topics as well as working on a new reality show.

What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
I'd like to extend an invitation to you to think about taking and writing about one of our Esotouric bus adventures, which roll most Saturdays out of Downtown LA and offer a unique historical perspective on the city through the lenses of social history, true crime, architecture, spirituality and rock and roll. Check us out some time at http://www.esotouric.com
Good afternoon, Robert, and welcome to Go-Lo! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Go-Lo, you may want to also take a few minutes to join several other of our many groups besides Media Only which you might find of particular interest, such as California, Spain, Colombia, Panama, Hotels/Motels/B&Bs/Inns, Eating/Drinking the World, Eco/Sustainable Tourism, Beach-Bumming, and various others covering many topics and most other destinations throughout the Americas, Europe, and the rest of the world.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a blue bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself and your writing (we would of course also be very grateful if you have the opportunity to cover Go-Lo in any of your outlets).
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, and colleagues. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!).
We wish you the best of luck over the rest of 2009 and beyond, both personally and professionally, and look forward to hearing much more from you...
