Part a book of essays about traveling and travel writing with some traditional travel essays at the end. Swick is upfront and insightful, and continually quotable about traveling in today’s modern world. His essays appealed to me as both a frequent traveler and fellow traveler writer. I enjoyed the essays more than some of the actual stories (though there are some gems there too), but recommend to anyone who wants to think seriously about travel (though not too seriously at the same time) and any travel writer.
