9781592993444: Globejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals (and still have time to enjoy your trip!)

Most travel diaries fizzle. By day six of a big trip, people are struggling to recall what happened on days three, four, and five. They return home with mostly empty journals, or bland writing that fails to capture the full spirit of their journeys. Award-winning travel humorist Dave Fox comes to the rescue in this book that's both informative and irreverently funny. You'll learn to:

  • Bring destinations to life with bold details.

  • Splash those details quickly onto your pages so journaling doesn't gobble up your precious vacation time.

  • Elude your Inner Censor and write with confidence.

  • Weave together your outer and inner journeys, using unfamiliar places as a backdrop for self-discovery.

  • Dave shares his favorite journaling techniques, shows how to find time to write in the middle of an exciting trip, and infuses it all with a generous dose of his off-the-wall humor. Whether your journeys are weekend road trips or excursions around the world, this book will help transform you into a travel journaling superhero!

    About the Author:

    Dave Fox is a travel writer, writing coach, and an obsessive world traveler. He guided tours for Rick Steves European travel company for 16 years before moving to Southeast Asia in 2011. His writing has appeared in books by Rick Steves and Lonely Planet. His travel journaling techniques have been featured on National Public Radio in the United States, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and Channel NewsAsia. He is a frequent travel contributor to the Straits Times newspaper in Singapore, and Singapore Airlines in-flight magazine and website.
     
    Dave published his first book after winning the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop Book Proposal Contest. Getting Lost: Mishaps of an Accidental Nomad is his collection of hilarious tales about things that have gone wrong in his international travels. His second book, Globejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals (and still have time to enjoy your trip!), helps travelers write more meaningful travel diaries. He is currently working on his third book, The Ghosts of Bùi Vi n Street, about the local residents who live and work in the so-called backpacker ghetto in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam.
     
    People ask me how many countries I ve visited, Dave says, and I don t like to answer that question. Travel shouldn t be about scoring points or bragging about passport stamps. It should be about having big experiences.
     
    Travel is an investment in stories. Most of our trips are short, but we get to keep the stories we accumulate for a lifetime. I love sharing my stories and the stories of people I meet. I also love teaching travel writing helping people document their own journeys. Writing about our experiences helps us understand the deeper meanings in our travels.
     
    Originally from the United States, Dave has lived in England, Norway, Turkey, and Singapore. He recently moved to Ho Chi Minh City, where he works as a freelance writer, teaches online writing courses, and offers in-person workshops and travel writing tours.
     
    I made my first trip to Vietnam just as Globejotting was about to be published, he says. In the book, I offer examples of pre-journaling writing about a place before you go there and I describe my anxieties as I m about to travel way outside my cultural comfort zone. What I never imagined as I was writing that chapter was that I d fall madly in love with Vietnam and end up moving there. But travel does that sometimes. It gives us real-life plot twists.

    Review:

    A vivid and thoughtfully written journal can be your most treasured souvenir. Dave Fox understands how journaling can help that great trip become a candy jar of memories that you can dip into for the rest of your life. And his book tells how. --Rick Steves, PBS TV host and author of Europe Through the Back Door
