Navdeep Singh Dhillon is a writer, photographer. He holds an MFA in creative writing and spent his childhood in Asia, Africa, and Europe, and now lives in the New York City area. He and his wife started IshqInABackpack.com in 2006, where they write long, meandering, SEO unfriendly posts for other word nerds about experiential family travel, literature, race, and food. Navdeep has taught ESL in China, backpacked extensively throughout South East Asia, and speaks several languages well enough not to accidentally order buttocks, cheeks, or fingernails. Not well enough, apparently, to remember that tartare means raw meat in French. Find hm on twitter: @ishqinabackpack.
