Discovering Travel Writing

Travelling is Tiring

Last week I did my first bit of proper travel writing. I went to Arnhem, Holland to write about the city and Operation Market Garden.

Travel writing is very new to me, so I’ve been busy reading about what makes great travel writing, and learning the practicalities of being a travel writer.

As with all of my learning experiences, I try to share them as I go. The biggest lesson I learnt from this trip was:

Make sure that important places/sites will be open when you visit.

If you’ve guessed that I didn’t check and that this became a significant problem, then you’re right. I didn’t expect two war museums to be closed in June, so I didn’t check. I should have checked!

  2. Oh, he is so cute. I think that many people just have to carress his sweet cheeks 🙂

    Have just arrived from holiday (ølejr, which is a primitive kind of holiday on an island, where we sleep in big tents and have no electricity. We were about 100 people). And I can see that you have been busy – I’m looking forwarding to reading all your posts.

    Have a nice day.
