Travel Writing


Since 1997, Sam Logan has lived in foreign countries. A semester in Spain led to many footprints in Europe. In 1998 he was in Costa Rica. His travelling has not stopped since.


Sam has visited over twenty countries, living in seven. His tendency to mix with locals has been used for compelling articles, great books ideas, and, simply, unbelievable story telling amongst polyglot friends.


He currently works for Rum and Reggae as a member of their writing team and has written chapters on Rio de Janeiro, Bonaire, Cuba, Margarita, and Los Roques. His work on Rum and Reggae's book on the state of Rio de Janeiro is now print.
