How to Travel Like a Writer

I’ll be honest: Traveling as a writer is the coolest thing since sliced bread. It wasn’t until I started traveling with other writers that I realized just how special the experience can be. Now, I use the lessons I learned from my friends to make every trip writer-approved.

Often when people travel, they go intending to switch off. But when you travel as a writer, you’re there to experience and learn — to observe and to interact. The trips I took as an ordinary person are often harder for me to remember, because I wasn’t really there. But the trips I took as a writer? They’re imprinted in HD in my brain — and in smudged ink in my journal.

Which leads rather nicely into the first point…
