What’s it really like to be a successful travel writer? Our new video series gives you the inside story.

As part of our efforts to celebrate and promote travel writing, we’ve launched a new video series offering a behind the scenes look at the life of travel writers.

Humbly shot and directed by myself, the first profile features the gonzo travel writer and tv host Robin Esrock, wandering around his current hometown of Vancouver, BC.

The idea is to offer a realistic take on what it means to be a travel writer: the good, the bad, and sometimes…the ugly. Each profile is presented on behalf of MatadorU, where travel writers of all levels can advance their careers.

I hope you enjoy the video (and feel free to share far and wide!)
