Tim Bewer gave up a career as a legislative assistant to become a freelance writer, photographer, editor, and tour leader. His written work has covered topics ranging from autism to punk rock, but he focuses on his first love: travel. Most of his time these days revolves around Thailand; the Isan (northeast) region in particular. In the months he isn’t shouldering a backpack he lives in Khon Kaen, Thailand.
