Do researchers discover destination knowledge or create it? This question has been at the heart of our discussions over the last four years and gradually, through conferences and meetings, travel writing has emerged as both a method of inquiry for us in tourism and area studies and as a professional practice for the synthesis of new knowledge, thanks, often, to the use of narrative. This travel writing blog, Travels in Search of is our discovery instrument and, we hope, a research practice that will yield new knowledge on place, destination image, visitor practices and tourism knowledge transfer.
