in the place you are reading about will make the texts come alive;
reading about the places you are exploring will make your experience of
those places much more exciting and meaningful. "Eyes-and-ears-on"
writing assignments and visits to sites described in the texts will help
you to discover the true joy and challenges inherent in traveling, in
which, as Jack Kerouac said, “You always learn something and learn to
change your thoughts.” Through assigned journal entries and writing
assignments, you will also have the chance to add your own voice, your
own thoughts and impressions, to the existing body of travel literature
