With wartime schooling in New Zealand, postwar schooling in Wales, and later University in Englands smog-bound Manchester, Travis had already travelled 14,000 miles by his 14th birthday! From studying a new and experimental 5 year Hons. Degree course in Town & Country Planning, his career was to lead on to developing Planning for Tourism as an even newer professional field. After a town planning career, climaxing in his first Planning Chair in Edinburgh, and then a later Urban Studies Research Chair in Birmingham, plus a Visiting Chair in Tourism in Glasgow, he made a worldwide contribution. From Consulting for the European Union, the UN World Tourism Organisation, and the Pacific Area Travel Association in places as varied as Poland, the Maldives, Michigan, and the Algerian Sahara, Travis has also lectured overseas regularly. In over 50 years of work, the stability has been given by his wife and family, aided by a global village of friends. A rich life that he can muse about in his 80s!

An Anthology Of Women S Travel Writing

Author : Shirley Foster
ISBN : 0719050170
Genre : Literary Criticism
File Size : 20.3 MB
Format : PDF, ePub

This anthology aims to challenge stereotypes of women travellers. Rather than simply presenting writings by Victorian women who travelled bravely around the world disregarding social convention and danger, the editors present a range of writing and possible ways of being a woman traveller. As well as the 'eccentric' woman traveller, the editors have included writings by those who might be seen as failed travellers, cautious and conventional travellers and those who did not conform to the adventurous heroine stereotype. Because travelling as a woman and writing as a woman presents the author with a number of textual problems which must be negotiated, Foster and Mills have chosen to include writings which confronted these problems and which resolved them (or did not resolve them) in different ways. These textual problems include the depiction of other women, the representation of spatial relations, the negotiations undertaken in relation to the adventure heroine narrative and character and the position taken by the author in relation to the representation of knowledge. These issues are all crucial in relation to travel writing by women, and the women, whose writing has been collected together in this anthology have made bold decisions in relation to them.

A Rear View Mirror Of My Life

Genre : Biography & Autobiography
File Size : 37.60 MB
Format : PDF, Kindle

This book is entitled “ A Rear View Mirror OF My Life” and in essence, it contains additional memories of the author’s life that were not included in his first book, “Life’s Reflections” with a sub-title of “From A Toddler To Eternity”. For that reason, as was the case with his first book, there is no one central theme with this book. There are, however, hundreds of vignettes that hopefully will beckon the reader to benefit from some of the lessons that he has learned in his seven decades of life. This book contains six chapters as follows: Chapter One, Educational Perspectives; Chapter Two, Alaska Tales; Chapter Three, Miscellaneous Moments; Chapter Four, Societal Observations; Chapter Five, Travel Tales; Chapter Six, My Greatest Gift
