On the move from birth — she was born in the back seat of a car — Louisa Rogers is a part-time expat, traveler, and writer who, with her husband, divides her life between Eureka, California; Guanajuato, Mexico; and the rest of the world. The daughter of diplomats, she grew up living in different countries and considers her early adolescence in the Washington, D.C. suburbs her most difficult “posting.” Today, she hikes, bicycles, and paddleboards internationally.
Louisa writes articles and essays about travel, expat life, physical and psychological health, spirituality, and food. In 2022, four of her articles were among Travel Awaits’ 25 most-read pieces.
Author and freelance writer Joe Cuhaj originally hails from New Jersey, but moved to Alabama 40 years ago and fell in love with the state’s natural beauty. So much so that he has written 12 outdoor recreation guides for Alabama that cover hiking, camping, and paddling. Joe has also penned several books on the 320+ year history of Mobile, Alabama and space exploration. Joe’s non-fiction history titles include:
- Space Oddities: Forgotten Stories from Mankind’s Exploration of Space
- Everyone’s Gone to the Moon: Life on Earth and the Epic Voyage of Apollo 11
- A Travel Lover’s Guide to Mobile and the Alabama Gulf Coast
- Hidden History of Mobile
- Baseball in Mobile
In 2006, Joe was named American Hiking Society’s Southeastern Volunteer of the Year for his work in building and maintaining hiking trails in the region.
Recently retired, Joe plans to continue his love of traveling while sharing his adventures and exploration of the U.S. and the world with TravelAwaits readers.
