Even though she works from home and doesn't confront the offce candy bowl, writing the article "10 Common Workplace Health Mis- takes" was a good reminder to eat an avocado for lunch, get up and stretch every hour, and keep a pitcher of water on her desk. April Kilcrease Writer and editor April Kilcrease caught the travel bug early. Born in Germany, she grew up on three continents with a road-trip-loving family. In her 20s, she was thrilled to discover that she could continue this semi-nomadic lifestyle as a journal- ist. Her favorite recent adventures include dog sledding with an Iditarod champion in Utah, hiking to a glacier in Chilean Patagonia, biking through strawberry felds in Austria, and disco dancing into the wee hours with a group of senior citizens while sailing down the Danube. Her work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, AFAR, and the Guardian.
