David Kriso has been a travel writer since August 2011. He is published online at Examiner.com, based in Denver, CO. He is also published at ProwsEdge.com. His articles focus largely on cruise and railroad travel. In addition, he’s been a six-time guest on Cruise Radio, based in Jacksonville, Florida.
Since February 2015, David has been a travel lecturer. David believes that being a writer is like being a educator. Even though there is no chalk and erasers, he shows a great appreciation for his readers who are indeed the best students in the world. He has written a series of travel presentations. His twelve presentations include cruising, Amtrak travel, Walt Disney World, Hawaii, Newport-RI, Boston, and Barbados. David’s travel presentations have been an instantaneous success. David has lectured at libraries throughout northern New Jersey and Rockland County, NY. He is presently pursuing lecturing at libraries outside the Tri-State area.
David has been cruising since he was sixteen years old. His first cruise was aboard the Starship Atlantic, f.k.a. The Big Red Boat. He and his family sailed to the Bahamas. On a later trip, David sailed the Aegean Sea to the Greek Isles. On two occasions, David sailed aboard the Queen Mary 2. He is an avid fan of Royal Caribbean and Princess. He has aspirations of being an on board ship guest lecturer.
Besides being an avid cruiser, David was a nine-year veteran cruise line agent in the New York area. Among his duties were guest check-in and tending to guests’ needs including transportation. David also also assisted guests requiring wheelchair assistance. David also had the privilege of working at the ports of Boston, Baltimore, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami.
Like a kid at heart, David is also a die hard fan of the railroading world. His railroading spirit has taken him places he’d never thought he’d visit. He has ridden the rails aboard the Strasburg Railroad in Pennsylvania, the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in Colorado, and has ridden to the top of Pike’s Pike aboard the Manitou Springs and Pike’s Peak Railway. Recently, he’s ridden on the Saratoga & North Creek and the Wilmington & Western Railroads. Further, David enjoys traveling aboard Amtrak to wherever the rails take him. His favorite destination is Kingston, RI, the home station of his college Alma Mater. His additional favorites are the excitement of the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, the museums and monuments in Washington, DC, and the non-stop energy of Boston.
