On Finding Authenticity on the Road

This post, Five Ways to Find Authenticity on the Road, published just over three years ago, has seen a welcome flurry of activity over the past several days. It’s a vignette and some scattered thoughts about the term ‘authenticity’, in the context of travelers and travel marketers. If you missed it, please check it out. I’d love to read and hear your thoughts.

Marginally on topic: I’m heading to Kampala, Uganda, tomorrow, part work assignment part exploration, for the next ten days. Besides doing my damnedest to maintain this Pic du Jour streak, I likely won’t have the time to be doing much posting about the trip itself. But I will be checking in.

And yeah, I’m looking forward to finding some authenticity there, too.

In the meantime, be well and be kind.

Cheers,
Bob

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,174th (!) straight, was snapped in Sapa, Vietnam, in October 2010.
