TouristTravel - A World of Discovery

Welcome to TouristTravel – A World of Discovery

 Travel with a Purpose

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness…”
-Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad

The Traveler Returns!

TouristTravel is a different kind of travel site. Since 2000 TouristTravel has provided a unique perspective on travel. We think travel should be more about discovery than escape. Seeing the world in a new way. Broadening horizons and deepening our understanding of the world and all its wonders.

We love great travel writing and storytelling. We love helping people tell their stories and maybe even become travel writers themselves.

Yes, we’ve been away for a bit, but we’ve never forgotten what got us started in the first place: wanderlust and the pull of a great story. The site will be a mix of old and new as we get things sorted out, but we’re back, ready to explore a whole world of discovery.

  • The Traveler Newsletter – 
    Since 2001 The Traveler has been one of the most popular travel and travel writing newsletters online. In 2009 we converted the newsletter to a blog format for easier updating to keep our readers up to date with the latest in travel news and travel stories. We’ve got plans for fall 2014 to make the blog even better. You can check it out at The Traveler Blog. Back issues of The Traveler newsletter can be found here.
  • Learn Travel Writing: Resources for how to become a travel writer. Sign up for a free eCourse “Getting Started in Travel Writing”.
