I hope those who came enjoyed the talk as I gave them some very good tips about what makes a strong travel book, and its nothing about getting the facts right about the destination, or the journey for that matter. A lot of it is about passion and the ability to convey it.
One girl asked me at the end 'how do you become as passionate as you are about traveling?' I don't know the answer to that one. I have always loved to explore the new, discover or rediscover, and am curious and tenacious by nature. And I believe without passion, or at least having someone or something to be passionate about, what is life about?
