“Travel does this: it creates space that allows thoughts and memories to intrude and assert themselves with impunity. Smells and sights, the quality of light, the honk of a horn — can all act as touchstones when least expected.”
―Andrew McCarthy, The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down
This blog is a collection of travel articles written by Stevenson University students in Professor Stephanie Verni’s Travel Writing course. Throughout the semester, the students read a variety of travel pieces, and the course culminated with each student writing their own local travel piece focusing on Maryland. Each student traveled to a location in Maryland and wrote a piece about their travel experience.
