For those who are privileged enough to afford it financially, physically, and otherwise, traveling is a wonderful way for writers to expand their horizons. Writers are inherently curious, so it's natural that as a writer, you would want to explore as much as possible. The world has so many wonders, that any trip you take is sure to inspire new ideas in exhilarating ways.
Che Guevera wrote, "Let the world change you, and you can change the world." I believe the same spirit holds true for writing. The more of the world you experience, the better your writing becomes. I personally want to see every inch of the world, and I want to write about it all.
Imagine this: You've got your notebook and a pen, and you're looking out across a fantastically beautiful landscape. Or you're sitting at a cafe in a bustling new city. Or you're talking to locals and soaking in their stories. No matter what kind of writing you do, there are so many ways in which traveling can connect you to new ideas.
Here are some destinations that are sure to inspire any writer. These places boast beautiful landscapes, rich literary cultures, and long histories of supporting the writing life. As you make your summer travel plans, keep these spots in mind.
