Frommer's Favorite Travel Blogs

By: on October 14, 2005 | # | Comments (1)

There's nothing like getting kudos at the same time as all your friends! BootsnAll, WorldHum, Vagablogging, Gadling, and I all got props for our blogs....and I love that they put Rolf and me together. Nice. Hey Rolf, they called us smart, fun, travel experts! And they like our personal voice...

So, you want some inside diary type info? I pulled into Salem, IL night before last, got into my room, and the phone rang. It was Rolf, back from assignments in Greece. He made my day. We talked about each other's '06 book plans, potential parties in October/November, possibly doing a California road trip together, and a travel writing workshop we're going to teach next year. Ooh wait, that was promotional. Well, that's ok, Frommer's whispered that I'm too self-indulgent and promotional. Um yes, would they have noticed me if I wasn't?

Don't worry folks. I got lots of good industry stuff while I was on the road...I'll try and write some of it up on the plane back to Cali...stay tuned for hot new travel books!

Reminds me, the other great part about the Frommer's blog list, is that there were sites on there that I didn't know about. Please read the full article, "Editor's Choice: Our Favorite Travel Blogs," to see what other travel resources are out there. The Frommer's Staff know their shit...their lives are consumed by as much travel as ours. Probably more.


Lonely Planet Guide to Travel Writing

By: on October 8, 2005 | # | Comments (0)

travelwriting.jpgThere have been a few people writing me and asking me to either send them, or post on Written Road, what I would've said at the travel writing class I was going to teach at the Savvy Traveller. Unfortunately, it's terribly time consuming to write down what I would be gabbing off the cuff about for three hours. There's just no replacing face to face energy and addressing the individual needs of who's in the audience. Besides not having the time for that, I'd rather encourage you to get Don George's new book on Travel Writing.

Lonely Planet Guide To Travel Writing

There are several books on travel writing already, but Don has heaps of experience and teaches travel writing regularly. Go ahead and get his book, and you'll be fine. Then you can ask me specific questions and I'll see if I can answer or get the answer from someone who knows.

In the coming weeks and months I can try and give more basic 101 how to get started info on Written Road, but creating a document or book of how I would teach a class is just not something I can do right now.

I am however working out the details of teaching some workshops next year through BootsnAll, so stay tuned and we'll let you know when those will be and how much they'll cost.

Thanks for your patience.
