Writing Away: A Creative Guide to Awakening the Journal-Writing Traveler

Thus, the act of chronicling one’s journey has never...

  • Rebecca
    I’m both an on-and-off journal writer and an avid traveler, so Writing Away seemed like it would be the perfect book for me.

    This book was a treat to read. It was witty, funny, and totally motivating. As inspiring as the book was, to have me dust off my journal and put pen to paper while abroad, it was just as inspiring, if not more so, to get my tokus on an airplane! I loved the sporadic quotes and journal entries from m...

    I would have given this book 3.5 stars. This book is a smooth read. I enjoyed each and every section. The quotes are very inspiring. Keeping journals is not a new thing for me. I did it during high school and college. I pasted each and every stub of a cinema ticket, bus ticket, receipts and every po...

    She has such a charming, engaging way of writing that when you start reading it is hard to put down the book and you can't help but love everything she writes. Her lively spirit and charming sense of humor come through naturally. Her words often flow like a song. I didn't realize that the book was t...

    Spalding shares valuable ideas for the beginning travel diarist. I am making a bookmark of my favorites to keep in my journal on the road this spring.I docked a star because I didn't appreciate the many positive references to sexual promiscuity or the overt, exclusively Buddhist religious perspectiv...

    One of my many regrets in my life is that I didn’t keep a journal when I started traveling 25 years ago. While reading Writing Away, I started looking back on my previous foreign travels. I realize how much I had missed by not keeping a journal. When I was traveling, I thought I would never for...
