The Travel Writers Trips, Tips and Pics – Posts Shared by Facebook Members

Once we were just writers or photographers, but no more. Today we are photojournalists. We are multimedia storytellers. We are the modern day troubadours, bringing words, photos, and video to you from all the places we go and the people we meet. We tell our stories and their stories. We tell stories of adventures you might have had, or will someday have. We seek to inspire and excite. We bring the world to you in case you can’t go to the world.

We encourage you to stop, look, and listen. And as Vyasa said, “If you listen carefully, at the end you’ll be someone else.”
Thank you
