Each time we offer our hearts and hands to serve others; show gentleness, kindness, and respect to all; defend the truth; and share our testimonies of the gospel, we stand as true witnesses of Jesus Christ. Detail from Walk with Me, by Greg Olsen, may not be copied. All of these and more have been given as companions for our mortal journey because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the Restoration of His gospel.
Trumpeted from the summit of Calvary is the truth that we will never be left alone nor unaided, even if sometimes we may feel that we are. He sacrificed everything He had so that you and every person on the earth can become clean and have eternal life. Learn from His perfect example. Keep Him in your thoughts and in your heart. And always remember that you are never alone. Because He endured His final journey in complete and utter solitude, He will not abandon you.
His love for you is infinite and unchanging, and He stands ready to offer you peace, comfort, and hope as you continue on your own journey. His gift of the Atonement is everlasting, and it was given to you. Show Hide. Internet, contacts, books, the previous guidebooks. A good pair of ears.

I like to merge into the background and observe and listen to conversations as much as possible. I really enjoy listening to the sounds and ambience of an environment, reading the psychology of a place through close observation of its social interactions. Do you ever get moments on the road when you think — why am I doing this? Does it become a grind? As I mentioned before, reviewing chain hotels is a special form of torture and definitely a grind.
But, also, I must stress again that time is always at a premium when doing guidebook work.
Lord of the Flies
Although I say I like to listen and observe, in reality financial constraints make it almost impossible to linger at leisure for days on end like some kind of bohemian flaneur, so you are really just crunching as much as possible into your day: visiting 10 hotels, dropping into 10 bars and restaurants and not necessarily eating or drinking in them, either , visiting the tourist office, the bus station etc. I visited Tasmania recently on holiday and found myself having to fight the urge to collect every generic brochure I came across in shops and restaurants.
Normally when I return from an LP trip I have a few kilos of paperwork to sort through for research. Micronesia was the most memorable. I was interested in that aspect, especially given, as I said before, there are very little places on the globe that you could say are untouristed in this day and age. In Pohnpei, after drinking sakau a root similar to kava but really like a mud milkshake spiked with heroin , I was chased by wild dogs while caught in a torrential downpour: a terrifying and exhilarating experience.
In Yap I saw giant stone money. Northern Honshu was also memorable. The region has suffered economically and culturally in comparison with the south, but I discovered it to be a place with a pulse.
Suffering beyond Compare
By approaching the place on its own terms, it was possible to uncover a hidden history. Similarly, in Guam, which has a reputation in travel books as basically an extended duty-free shopping mall for rich Japanese, I was able to uncover regions of unexpected beauty in the south, regions that are generally ignored in favour of lazy cultural stereotypes. As far as other travel writing goes, although LP did not have the budget to send me to Sealand for the Micronations book I worked on, I ended up visiting it in May last year.
I wrote an article about it for The Australian newspaper and I must say that journey was a highlight of my career. How does LP calculate the money they give you to make the trip? Do they give you a big chunk and tell you to get on with it?
