About Jay

Jay Gentile is an award-winning travel writer and freelance journalist who has written for The Washington Post, CNN Travel, The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, Outside Magazine, SPIN, VICE, Thrillist, and many more. A frequent Lonely Planet contributor specializing in US-based travel since 2017, his adventures have taken him across five continents from fleeing rhinos in the jungles of Nepal to bungee jumping off New Zealand’s highest bridge.

He’s based in Chicago, but would probably rather be stumbling across some weird dive bar in Montana just in time to catch the sunset over the mountains.
