Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. Travel writing can be fun and rewarding, but like most anything worthwhile, doing it well takes a lot of dedication, study, and hard work. The EMT’s pronounced the whole family dead at the scene earlier that night. And everyone can learn how to write better.

But with its stunning views from the fell top and numerous picturesque and challenging walks to the summit, Scafell Pike alone is a worthy reason to visit the Lakelands. These wonderful, giving people are dead now. I reckon, although not everyone would admit it, every Blogger goes through this stage at one point or another. If travel is about the meeting of realities, it is no less about the mating of illusions: You give me my dreamed-of vision of Tibet, and I’ll give you your wished-for California.

In some cases, like the abolitionist autobiography The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa the African, Written by Himself (1789), the vision of a remote childhood in Africa (with various echoes of a primitive Jewish natural life) was inevitably quite fictionalised, in part to fulfil the generic expectations of a Christian spiritual journey.41 In other cases, like the former Indian sepoy’s Travels of Dean Mahomet (1794), the native (a Muslim Bengali) who once served the expansion of the East India Company and now has successfully settled in Britain, travels back, with his pen, to his original country.

Author Giles Foden says he always feels travel writing benefits from a cinematic approach, in that you need to vary the focus – wide lens for setting and landscape; medium lens for context and colour; zoom lens for detail and narrative – and switch between the views in a piece. In recent years, numerous restaurants that invite you to stop and enjoy have set up shop next to the market stands. Since we’ve been married for a year now, it only seems natural that I write about what’s happened since then and how I’ve come to adjust to this huge life change.
