Traveling with a Writer's Eye

Traveling with a Writer's Eye
Hi. I’m Dave Fox. I’m a travel writer and writing coach based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I’m on a mission not only to tell my own stories, but to help other people tell theirs as well. I’m super excited to be partnering with Wildland Adventures on a special travel writing tour of Vietnam March 6-17, 2017. Along the way, I’ll teach a series of workshops to help you write about your adventures – for your own personal enjoyment, or with the goal of getting published. Writers of all skill levels are welcome! You can also join me LIVE on November 15th at 11:30 AM PST for a free webinar on Travel Writing Basics: From Personal Journals to Published Tales. I first visited Vietnam in 2008. At the time, I was working as a tour guide in Europe for Rick Steves, and I was looking for a vacation somewhere different. My Vietnam vacation...

With a new flight route direct from Santiago to Puerto Natales, the wonders of Chilean Patagonia and Torres del Paine are more accessible than ever.  CN Traveler says: It's never really been easy to visit the 935-square-mile Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, but that's part of what makes tens of thousands of travelers every year endure over 20 hours of travel (each way!) just to see it. This park, all pristine mountains and lakes carved by glaciers, is one of world's great natural wonders and, from this December, it'll be easier to reach than ever before. The South American airline LATAM is set to revive a rare route from Santiago, Chile to Teniente Julio Gallardo Airport in Puerto Natales, the airport nearest Torres del Paine. The airport has spent the last few years catering to private aviation, making it a destination out of reach for the majority of travelers....
