Selecting pieces best fit for the CLUJ Travel Section is always challenging. This semester, we had our work cut out for us. In the end, we chose those pieces that we thought were most creative,...

Travel writing is not just about conveying character of place –– it requires an observational mindset and an openness to new experiences.

Each author published in this issue has been wholly successful in presenting his or her own distinctive voice and unique perspective on travel. We hope you enjoy!< Less
