Fly Away Travel Writing Class



Your passport to freedom, fun and—oh yes—getting paid to travel

Not all those who wander are lost.—The Lord of the Rings

Imagine cruising around the Mediterranean, starting in Rome with a 5-course dinner at a 4-star hotel, stopping at Sardinia to visit a limoncello factory, exploring Napolean’s homeland, Corsica, dining at award-winning restaurants in Avignon and seeing fireworks while sipping champagne on the beach in Cannes. Or zip lining in Costa Rica and being pampered with massages and 3-course wine dinners. Imagine exploring the Peruvian Amazon on a luxury boat with Peruvian cuisine or eating your way around France and Italy.

My name is Tracey I’ve done all this (and more) and written about it— because I am a travel writer.  I want you to experience the same carefree + exciting life so I created Fly Away Travel Writing School with you in mind.

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.—St. Augustine

You imagine a life of freedom where you can pack up and go on an adventure of your choice, whether it’s to the South of France, Tuscany or the Amazon.

You’d love to jet around to destinations you may have only dreamed about.

Adventure is a path. Real adventure—self-determined, self-motivated, often risky—forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind—and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.—Mark Jenkins
