10 Writing Prompts about Travel

Whether we are travelling across country, or to far off lands filled with totally foreign sights, sounds and smells, these experiences play a powerful role in shaping who we are, and how we think about life.

So today we’re going to tap into this, and get some thoughts and writing happening on the topic of travel.

We’ve got some prompts which you can use for journaling, and others well suited for creative writing – but as usual, it’s all about inspiration to get writing, right now!

Let’s get into it…

How to use:

You might like to pick one random prompt per week for a month, and write about the topic of travel from several different angles.

Or, just read through the list until one triggers an immediate opinion, reaction or memory. Pick that one, and let the words flow like water!

Alternatively you could try to combine two of the prompts for a more complex writing challenge.

There are no hard and fast rules, have fun with them!

The Prompts:

  1. Travel can be an adventure that you remember for a lifetime. Write about an interesting travel experience you’ve had, or want to have one day.
  2. Many people find that travelling to different countries allows them to understand different people’s beliefs and points of view better. Why do you think that is?
  3. How does traveling to another city differ from traveling to another country?
  4. Where on Earth would you travel to if money was not an issue? Why?

  7. How will travel in the future be different to travel now?
