Raves for an Experienced Travel Writer 


Anyone can toot their own horn. Here’s what others have to say about the work I’ve done:

“I just wanted to thank you for the spectacular job you did on the Seattle guide.  It’s so lively, fun and knowledgeable — and full of insider details and insights, which is exactly what we wanted.  You nailed it!” – Veronica Stoddart, Managing Editor for Travel, USA TODAY

“You make an editor’s job easy, Chris.” – Spud Hilton, Travel Editor, San Francisco Chronicle 

“Ex-USA Today editor Chris (Gray) Faust falls into the reformed reporter camp. She’s really smart about the blogging platform, but her content is so good she could get away with a account.” – Jason Clampet,, quoted on Gadling

“I’ve worked with Chris at two newspapers. She’s a pro – a deft editor and talented writer who thinks big and makes things happen.” – Eugene Kiely, Executive Editor,

“This blog shows how a journalist can build a brand around herself or himself with quality content, well organized and connected to the audience.” -University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication, 2010 Lowell Thomas Awards

“Chris Gray Faust, the former travel editor of USA Today, has a completely unique perspective on travel — first as the editor of one of the best travel sections in the country, and now as a blogger. I read every post.” – Christopher Elliott, “10 Travel Blogs You Should Bookmark in 2010”
