Travel blogs, movie and book reviews, writing tips, and more.

Established in May of 2021, The Word Traveler is a blog focusing on the world of words and travel. Through books, readers can explore far away places or the hidden places of the soul. Through travel, adventurers connect with global citizens, kindred spirits, and strangers who become more familiar as we share our love of people and the world. I hope you enjoy my wanderings, whether real or imagined. Don’t forget to subscribe at the bottom of the page.
