What sets good travel writing apart is detail, detail, detail. Which cafe, on what street, overlooking what view? You must sweep the reader up and carry them off on the journey with you. Paint an evocation of where you are so we can experience it along with you. Be specific and drop “stunning”, “breathtaking” and “fantastic” from your lexicon, otherwise it’s just a TripAdvisor entry.

Travel writing is often so boring. I don’t understand how some authors ever get published in the first place. Don’t just tell me, show me your adventures, using words.
