I enjoy finding good travel writing, and if you want to have a good read, check out the daily blog and website from Thomas Swick.
Swick used to be the travel editor for the Sun-Sentinel but since 2008 has been a full-time freelance writer/author.
My favorite article of his is "A Walk Through Old Japan" that was published in the Smithsonian Magazine.
Swick has a great way of combining humor and description to make a location come alive. He has a book out (which I'm planning on getting soon) called A Way to See the World: From Texas to Transylvania With a Maverick Traveler (2005) which looks like a good travel read.
