From Concord, Massachusetts to North Africa (with 1-minute Video PostCard)

by Wendie Hansen with Kaleel Sakakeeny

Ralph Waldo Emerson had this to say about the Old North Bridge in Concord, MA, a suburb of Boston:

“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,

Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,

Here once the embattled farmers stood

And fired the shot heard round the world.”

But what does the bridge in Concord,  the home of the…

I want to apologize if you took exception to my comment on the web vs.print debate and press trips. My intent is not to make enemies or offend anybody.   I think part of my perspective is driven by what the writing community is like in L.A.  Most of my fellow writers are great, but there are a few bad apples, and almost every time we all get together, there's at least one of us who have issues with bloggers.  That said, many of my publications work on small budgets, so it is perfectly permitted for me to accept and apply for inclusion on press trips. However, I have done many trips on my own without a formal press trip--including several pieces on the food of The Golden Triangle and Kolkata, so I do agree the press trip--though it is a wonderful thing, and a gift for some travel writers--is not the only option or way to be a travel writer.
