Globejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals

(And still have time to enjoy your trip!)


Most travel diaries fizzle. By day six of a big trip, people are struggling to recall what happened on days three, four, and five. They return home with mostly-empty journals, or bland writing that fails to capture the spirit of their journeys.

Award-winning travel humorist Dave Fox comes to the rescue in this book that’s informative and irreverently funny. You’ll learn to:

  • Bring destinations to life with bold details.
  • Splash those details quickly onto your pages so journaling doesn’t gobble up precious vacation time.
  • Elude your “Inner Censor” and write with confidence.
  • Weave together your “outer” and “inner” journeys, using unfamiliar places as backdrops for self-discovery.

Dave shares his favorite journaling techniques, shows how to find time to write in the middle of an exciting trip, and infuses it all with a generous dose of his off-the-wall humor.

Whether your journeys are weekend road trips or excursions around the world, this book will help transform you into a travel journaling superhero! *
