Regarding Moon Handbooks Author Carl Parkes
Avalon Travel is saddened to learn of the passing of Carl Parkes, a San Francisco native, travel writer, and author of many Moon Handbooks…
From May 14, 2014: “Carl fervently believes that travel is an immensely rewarding undertaking which affirms the basic truths of life. “Travel is much more than just monuments and ruins. It’s an opportunity to reach out and discover what’s best about the world. Travel enriches our lives, spreads prosperity, dissolves political barriers, promotes international peace, and brings excitement and change to our lives.”
Carl had a very profound impact on my life – instilling the love of Asia and travel and introducing me to so many wonderful friends when I was new in town.”
