Travel Writing Miscellanea...

Fellow blogger and travel writer Leif Pettersen was interviewed StarTribune.com for an article about Twitter. Called Keep it Short and Tweet, the article quotes Leif on his initial reaction to Twitter...

"I didn't get it," said Pettersen, 38, of his first reaction to the ultra-short posts. "It was like hearing bits of conversation from a room full of schizophrenics."

But looks like he's got it now. You can follow Leif's twitter over at his Killing Batteries blog.

Jerry Guo over at Gadling.com has been Talking travel with the notorious Thomas Kohnstamm.

....

The Sunday Herald has a review of Semi Invisible Man: The Life Of Norman Lewis, a neglected British travel writer who apparently "...spent his life foraging around some of the world's most dangerous places, from civil-war Spain to remote corners of Asia and drug-ravaged Latin America." Can't say I've ever heard of him, but he's now on my reading list.

....

SF Gate reviews "Presidential Travel. The Journey From George Washington to George W. Bush". Another book that sounds intriguing.

Thanks for the link juice Liz.

By the way, Pettersen is spelled with a 's-e-n' by us difficult Norwegians.
