Inside Travel Writing: An interview with Geoff Moore

I first visited Fregate Island when it was a very basic destination with small hotels and guest houses, and the island was very natural.
I visited a few years ago and it was then one of the most select private destinations in the world. You get your own butler, solar powered golf cart and a choice of 20 different pillows just for starters. I had three wonderful days there.

It has unique wildlife as well as seven beaches to choose from.

Inside Travel Writing: An interview with Lea Lane

I live in Miami now but I return to New York or Paris whenever possible. Some of my favourite places — because they have just about everything a traveler could want — include Morocco, New Zealand, Italy.

Everybody seems to write about their trips on social media, usually for free. You have to find a way to get noticed, and do things better than most. And keep your day job. Making a good living, aside from the travel ops, is difficult.
