Behind every VIA article there's an intrepid reporter risking sunburn on an exotic Tahitian cruise, indigestion on San Francisco's best food tours, and over-exfoliation in the West Coast's most relaxing spas. These are the men and women who lived to tell the tale.
Joan O'C. Hamilton
Author of VIA's story on Legoland, Joan O'C. Hamilton has changed her approach to travel over the years—now vacations must include diversions for her 3-year-old, Blair, and 10-year-old, Marie. Hamilton, a Business Week columnist and Bay Area native, also uncovered seaside amusements in Capitola, where her parents often took her when she was a youngster.
