PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Travel Tribune (http://www.thetraveltribune.com/) and its adventurous editor are on a quest to discover and share the most interesting people and places from around the world. Launched in December 2016, the blog posts new content every Saturday and is designed to be both user-friendly and richly informative.
"Although there are countless travel blogs on the Internet, what separates us from the others are our well-researched, original stories that focus on others' experiences rather than our own," says Larry Schwarz, Editor of The Travel Tribune. "We don't have any political leanings and plan to feature articles about individuals without regard to who they are or what they believe."
Unique stories are the coin of the realm at The Travel Tribune. Readers can learn about life in North Korea from Ray Cunningham, who has spent more time in the reclusive and isolated nation than any other American tourist. Another story reflects on the darker side of the world of tour directing, an often ignored and misunderstood profession.
Schwarz has fascinating narratives of his own to share, such as his 2002 sojourn through Syria — many years before conflict tore the country apart and displaced many of its people. The trip was part of an 11-month adventure during which he kept an extensive blog. Many had warned him to avoid the country, but such admonitions did not deter him.
Visitors will also find interviews with locals and reviews of popular (or hidden) destinations within the pages of The Travel Tribune. Most recently, Schwarz wrote an analysis of the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, which delivers an experience quite unlike the gloss and glitz of the Strip.
The Travel Tribune supplies personalized travel services for those who want something more than a typical tour agency can offer. These are provided by the editor and include individual travel planning and escorting, public speaking, and consulting.
For the next six months, The Travel Tribune will be publishing one chapter each week from Emmy-award winning Gregg Cockrell's "Draft Dodger: How Far I Traveled to Avoid the Vietnam War." In this provocative memoir, the former MSNBC producer recounts how avoiding the draft produced a lifetime's worth of unforgettable experiences.
