Travel Journalism’s itinerary

Posted by: | September 27, 2011 | No Comment |

Travel journalism has been around since 1160, where a rabbi wrote of his travels. In that age, travel news was mainly written. Now it is usually televised or photographed.

The Travels of Marco Polo

Marco Polo even aided travel journalism. In 1275, when Polo was jailed, he told a writer of his travels.

Regardless of the medium, travel journalism seeks to describe places to an audience. It may be that in this age, we are more visual so these television programs or photographs speak to us more. There are whole magazines and tv channels that are devoted to travel journalism.

Many magazines are strictly travel journalism

Humans are known to be curious, so it’s no surprise that travel journalism has been a part of our history. It will also continue to be a part of our future.
