Independent Travel Writing contractor/author/broadcaster
We could travel for the rest of our lives and discover another potential faux-pas every day in every new place we visit. But, once we are aware of these possible cultural indiscretions we're half way towards shedding ourselves of ignorance.I'm sure I'll make many more mistakes as I travel, but the longer we live and the more we travel, the more we learn.
Thank you Sonja. When a place is close to your heart it's always easier to portray in words.If you make it to Cavtat, tell Vice I sent you - and then get ready to party like there's no tomorrow! :)
Has anyone else (not including Washington Iriving) been to Antequera?
Has anyone been bear-watching in Asturias, and if so, were you lucky enough to see them?
Next time, eh Matthew... Late Spring should be perfect.
I don't like zoos, but the Parque Naturaleza de Cabárceno in Spain's Cantabria in no ordinary place.
I adored your writing, story, style, descriptions - this essay had no need for photographs, you painted every single scene magnificently, basely, crudely and warmly with every carefully selected word. How travel writing (or any writing) should really be. Thank you Jodi.
Who knew that the Spanish conquistador Pizarro was worn in the quaint little town of Trujillo, situated on a rocky outcrop in the country's Extremadura region? I certainly didn't.
