I completed this piece of travel writing called A Tribute to Utila: A Selection of Memories yesterday.
It was honestly a challenging write. I was trying to blend factual information with experiential information. Trying to give a general sense of the island and yet also the specific individuals who touched my lives. I wanted to write about them but also about how they impacted me. This is really complex writing.
I don't think I did it very well. But I tried my best and just had to send it off as I would like to move on to other types of writing and this has been taking up more than 8 months of my time.
Basically, I fell in love with an island. It was not love at first sight, but it slowly won my heart. And I wanted to tell others about this story.
So here you go, my amateurish and humble attempt at travel writing!
