It was an honor. privilege and delight to have been invited to give a lecture on travel journalism at the annual Vona conference (Voices of our Nation Arts Foundation), held this year in Berkeley, Ca. The title of my walk was Shapeshifting: The Journey from Traveler to Travel Journalist.
Below are two thank you letters that I received from students. Reading them brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful reminder of one of the reasons that I became a travel journalist and lecturer.
