I felt like writing would be the easy part of this trip; take some photos, write a little here, drive there, and write some more. Far easier said and imagined than done. Filling the role of a sort of amateur travel writer while doing your own proof-reading, taking your own photos, editing the photos, experiencing the travel, planning, and culture while problem solving, finding internet, keeping batteries charged, collating all of it into an enjoyable reading experience then uploading to a self-administered webpage is no small feat. So, to all of the travel writers, photographers and film makers who create magnificent stories and documentaries, novelists, poets, editors, journalists, and all other varieties of writers, you have my respect. Writing is not something you achieve success in overnight. In fact, I believe many of the most famous writers were rejected publication for years while they perfected their craft; often times passing away before their legacies were established. It’s hard work, necessary work, and appreciated. Stay true to your craft, but don’t lose yourself in it.
