Welcome to Write for Travel

Welcome to Write for Travel, a place where I share ideas for both writing and traveling and not necessarily in that order.

I used to tell my boss that the only reason I worked was so I could pay for my travels and things haven’t changed all that much. You will find information on destinations I have been to or love to write about as well as suggestions, tips and ideas for anyone interested in writing, whether it is as a career or to supplement their income. It is all possible.

This blog was started because I really wanted to share my travel experiences and help others enjoy their own travels. I am a freelance writer and columnist and that is how I make some of my living and I don’t pretend to make lots of money but it does supplement my pension nicely, which helps a lot.

I don’t want to stay in a dormitory but 5* hotels are beyond the budget. I would rather stay in an economical but clean hotel or whatever I choose and have more $$$ to pay for airfare to Guatemala or pay for a tour to the Great Wall in China. Get the picture?

You will find information on destinations I have been to or love to write about as well as suggestions, tips and ideas on writing or ways to pay for your travels or keeping the costs down. It is all possible.

Any questions or suggestions? I would love to hear from you and get to know you too. 

In the meantime I hope you enjoy a video I took of a street vendor in Xian, China creating candy for the children. It’s caused a huge amount of comments – and not all good!
