Road Remedies

BlogHer Original Post

Road Remedies is my newest find.

This link takes you directly to the first post in freelance travel writer and prolific journalist Amanda Castleman's brand new (as in "rung in right along with 2006") blog. I'm linking right to the beginning, for two reasons. One is the list of destinations she's hit in the past three years. Impressive. Gotta-get-me-a-plane-ticket-now inspiring. Second, she explains that this blog was born in response to the departure of her significant other for a six-month trip of his own around the world, and to an exploration of her own feelings about leaving, and coming home.

"Who understands wanderlust better than a travel writer?" she writes. "On the other hand, I'm not accustomed to being the one left home, which can chafe."

Lovely writing, and an interesting new take on a topic that is familiar to her, and likely to many readers. Visit her profile and you'll also find links to her print work, including contributions to several travel guides. (Italy takes a starring role here.) She also teaches travel writing courses online for It's surprising - and welcome - that she's found the time for Road Remedies as well.
