Interview with Rob Whyte, Lonely Planet Korea author

Anyone who travels and writes has at some point thought about being a travel writer. For most of us, that dream remains confined to diaries, blogs, local websites, and missives to our friends and family back home, but some itinerant scribes of course do make the leap to professional travel writing. Rob Whyte is an instructor at Busan University of Foreign Studies, and he’s also been a part-time travel writer for about the past ten years. He co-authored editions six, seven, and eight of the Lonely Planet Korea guidebooks, and has a host of other travel-related writing to his credit, including other upcoming Lonely Planet publications on ethnic food.


Does Photography Ruin your Vacation?

When I was in university there was a lot of talk about what it meant to “travel” This mostly came from white upper-class students whose parents were paying for their university and traveled to exotic and remote places like…. New Zealand or England. They came back with stories of how they were not tourists and mingled with the locals. Of course I am not entirely being serious here but for the most part that was the common element of these inane conversations in my university “tourism” class.
