Travel and writing go together. So does travel and reading.
As a writer, I've traveled to do research on manuscripts in progress, and to discover new things, places and people that I may someday write about.
As a reader, I've been a pilgrim to the haunts of writers whose words I cherish. For me, language, writing, and books are the finest gifts we've bestowed upon ourselves as humans. The first type of writerly travel is work. The second is fun.
