Try your hand at travel writing

Travel is something we can all do. We don’t have to travel great distances. A journey can be as close as the distance from our home to the park at the end of the road. Travel writing is one of the most compelling forms of writing because a good travel book can transport you immediately to different places, people, and cultures, all from the comfort of your own home.
