Have you ever written on random things about any of your travel experiences? i keep telling myself that there a lot of interesting things that I can write about when it comes to traveling but once i sit do to gather my thoughts i end up frustrated because i cant decide what to write about!! Has it ever happened to you? and did you eventually end up writing ? Please share...

Pictures speak louder than words. Why not just post your pictures and submit to those writing sites? Writing the caption of each picture may be a good start to a long article. Anyway, most people are lazy to read travel articles, they are more interested to look at the pictures. After you got their attention, they will start searching for the travel articles and read about it. I have not tried writing travel articles yet, but this is what I feel when I read the articles written by someone in AC. He just back from a Beijing trip and everyone keen to look at the pictures rather than read the articles.

Thanks for the wonderful tip...writing a caption for each picture. I guess it's time for me to get a new camera!. Happy mylotting:)

Please remember to yell when you are done. I do love to see beautiful places and read about the culture and customs of people around the world. I am a very lazy traveller, most of the times fly off without the camera and less than 5kg of luggage. Maybe I should get a camera and go around "shooting" people. That will turn into a lot of articles and captions.

Not really. I just usually focus on one specific thing that I want to write about. Writing about a whole trip is probably beyond my capabilities. I havent actually done that yet. I do like travel writing though.
