Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

 

Andrew Davey is a writer who spent a long time in “hard news” journalism. In the past, Andrew covered presidential campaigns, state legislative sessions, extremist militia movements, public health challenges, and the dangerous world of online scams. During this time, Andrew learned how to survive in high-stress environments, take compelling photos on the fly, ask the right question(s) during hurried press gaggles, take extensive notes during long legislative hearings, and work under all sorts of tight deadlines. Andrew may have also started drinking copious amounts of coffee and growing many strands of gray hair during this era. 

Since 2022, Andrew’s journalistic journey has taken a very different direction. Andrew now travels the world in search of the best destinations, accommodations, and overall experiences for readers to discover and enjoy. In that first year alone, Andrew discovered La Jolla’s “secret beaches” in San Diego, tried clay shooting in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, walked into the Mediterranean Sea at Tel Aviv, had an immensely spiritual experience at the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, survived customs “purgatory” at Toronto-Pearson International Airport, went kayaking in the Savannah River in Augusta (Georgia), walked the beach with flamingos in Aruba, and did a pub crawl in Bonaire. 

Since then, Andrew has walked where Georgia O’Keeffe painted her masterpieces in New Mexico, snorkeled by the world-famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, survived nighttime kayaking in Puerto Rico, tried surfing the epic waves near Todos Santos, found the ultimate desert island at Espiritu Santo (at La Paz), snorkeled with jellyfish at Majahuitas (near Puerto Vallarta), and got better acquainted with craft gin in Macon (Georgia). Going forward, Andrew is excited to embark on new adventures, try even more new things, and see even more of this amazing planet that we call home. 

When Andrew is not busy traveling the world, he loves to catch up with close friends, experiment in the kitchen at home, research for future trips, attempt new skincare regimens, and visit the family in California as much as possible. Andrew grew up in Southern California and currently lives in Henderson, Nevada (USA).
