Bio: Anthony Manzanares

Living on the periphery of travel blogging for over a decade, Tony has now retired from a few decades as a criminal defense attorney. He now flexes his creative muscles with writing, photography, and social media accounts of his own.

His travel ethos is balance – finding the right combination of discovering new things and enjoying downtime – thereby creating a personal WOW experience.

His favorite travel destinations include the Caribbean, Italy, and anywhere that Mary Jo convinces him to visit.

Tony serves as Vice President of Leeward Media, assists Mary Jo with content creation for Traveling with MJ, and writes for The Travelers Way where he will start taking on more editorial responsibility.

Tony enjoys attending sporting events (he is an avid Washington State Cougar fan), a steak with a good glass of cabernet, reading history and taking a well-placed nap.
