Pursued Adventures was created to bring back the love of traveling. Our purpose is to provide you with the best and most relevant information to make your travel plans the best they can be, to make the “travel” part of your vacation, not just a means to your vacation. We’re not just looking to help you find the cheapest flights but also the best flights, on the best airline and with the best equipment for your trip. If you’re gonna travel thousand of miles across oceans and spend dozens of hours in an airplane, airport or hotel, let our reviews help you make the most informed decisions to help maximize your trip and make the best stories.
Based in Los Angeles, California, your writers are James Dozer and Guest Contributor, Josh Assayag.
Born and raised in Oregon, James moved down to Southern California for college in 1996. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine in 2001, he went on his first “big” adventure across the Atlantic. Bitten by the travel bug aboard an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin, the rest they say is history.
James have been traveling extensively ever since. He has visited over 30 countries, five of the seven continents, flown on dozens of carriers in economy, business and first class and has stayed at many accommodations from hostels to five star resorts. On a budget or all expenses paid, he has enjoyed all his trips the same, and hope to share his stories with you.
His goal for this forum is to help you take fantastic trips, have incredible memories and share amazing vacation stories that your family and friends will actually want to hear.
James’ other interests include fitness (especially during travel) and all things geeking out. What can he say? He’s just a dork that found the gym (all around the world).
Josh is a Guest contributor and author of the “Ask the Pilot” series. Josh has been involved in aviation his entire life. Since his first day of flight training in 1994, Josh has logged over 4000 hours in over 40 different types of military and commercial aircraft. He has experience in both domestic and long haul international operations and currently operates the Boeing 737 for a major airline.
Josh graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a degree in Aeronautical Science and holds Flight Instructor, Ground Instructor and Airline Transport Pilot Certificates. He is type rated in the Beechjet 400A, Embraer 135/140/145 and the Boeing 737.
Josh is married and is based in the greater Los Angeles area. In his free time, Josh is pursuing his Master’s degree and is an avid cyclist. He has completed two Century Rides, biking cross-country to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and is training for his next one. Talk about giving “transcon” a whole new meaning!
