“Professional travelers are how most of the world learns about itself” – Paul Ross.
That’s gotta be the best travel quote I have read in a while.
I haven’t been to a travel-writing workshop yet (shame on me), but I would go to one just to hear more moving quotes like this that would hopefully serve as morphine for my inspiration.
On that note…
Event News: Award-winning travel journalist Judith Fein and her travel photographer husband Paul Ross will be holding a travel journalism retreat in Mexico
– You will stay in an eco-resort on a lagoon
– Visit remote and little-known archeological sites
– Cook with Maya people, visit Maya villages
– Swim, go kayaking, take a boat ride, get a free massage, three gourmet meals a day (including candlelight dinners)
AND: (most importantly)
Learn to transform these experiences into travel articles and stories. There will be daily classes in all aspects of travel journalism, and for those interested, travel photography will be demystified through group and individual instruction.
