One for the Road (01/18/06)

I enjoyed Thomas Swick’s guest blogging at World Hum last week and decided to profile one of his travel books for today’s suggestion: A Way to See the World: From Texas to Transylvania With a Maverick Traveler was published in 2003, and includes many stories that first appeared in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, where Swick has been the Travel Editor since 1989. Some of the places he visits and mentions in his stories include trips to Turkey, France, Hungary, Ohio and Minnesota. Here’s a World Hum interview with Swick from when the book was released. It sounds like a neat collection. Also be sure to check out Swick’s posts from his recent week at World Hum — he shared some really great stuff about travel and the travel writing profession, that is sure to be of particular interest to aspiring wanderlust writers.
