I saw this on the Stanfords website the other day. I liked it and thought many of you may as well.
Good travel writing makes you jealous.
It makes you want to walk in an author’s footsteps;
to see what they saw and feel what they felt.
The best travel writing inspires.
It instils the desire for discovery.
It challenges you to think new thoughts and find original experiences.
It creates adventurers.
