Travel Writing from Home
Many of us get a lot of pleasure and inspiration from travelling to different countries in search of new experiences. Travel has certainly inspired many great writers over the centuries. But it doesn’t have to involve far-flung exotic places. We can travel back in time exploring memories or history, and reach entirely new places through our imagination. As the American Henry Miller wrote: “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”
