Be a Travel Writer: Fun While you Earn

By: Mike

One of the purest joys in life is to travel to virgin places. Places that have not yet been touched or treaded into. The excitement of unraveling the mysteries is too tempting for anyone to control his passion and resist from the inevitable. That is to making a foray into the alien, mysterious place. Not that people are not alarmed at doing something which has not yet been done. But it is this heady mixture of bravado and butterflies that make this whole venture so exciting. And if one gets to do this to make his living then he can simply be called supremely lucky. Indeed, to be a travel writer is the best profession that a travel enthusiast can ever let his hand on. Not only does he get to do what he likes most, but, to add to that he also gets paid for it. It surely is one combination that simply cannot be beaten.

However, one must understand that to be a travel writer it is imperative that one possesses certain qualities. First of which is to remain alive to whatever is happening around. Passive traveller can never be a good travel writer. A good travel writer must be like a sponge. He should be able to take in all the experience as it unfolds and then squeeze last drop of it as and when he writes about it. This surely would breathe life into his writing. Then one must also get rid of his complaining nature or else he would never be able to strike a chord with the place. Nor would he be able to establish any worthy communication with aboriginals, and if this happens then one can never think of producing a script that can ever move anyone.

If on the other hand one possesses or develops a nature that enjoys every thing that it comes across then one is sure to create a piece that would work as a window for the rest of the world, providing the most incisive information and exclusive report that can introduce the secluded mass of land to the world and give it its rightful due. One must not forget that travel writers have a lot to do in redemption of Africa from a dark continent of yesteryears to one of the most happening tourist attractions of today. To be a travel writer, therefore, requires a lot of determination hard work and it certainly is not a child's play.

If one gets a high on meeting stranger, travelling to foreign locale and if one has the habit of writing diaries then one must seriously think to for one has all the qualities present in him and all that is required is chiseling and harnessing of talent before one can develop the art of creating magic with words.
