Travel Writing

These are the features we would expect in a piece of travel writing.

  1. Emphasises place rather than events.
  2. Explores the state of mind of the writer.
  3. A meticulous attention to detail and mood.
  4. Recreates an atmosphere.
  5. Sights, sounds, smells, textures, tastes are described to make the reader feel part of the experience.
  6. Reveals the emotion of the moment.
  7. Focuses on thoughts, not details of travel.
  8. It is real and honest - based on a real experience, not an imagined one.
