ABBEY OF GETHSEMANE

O n July 13-16, 1998, I did something I have wanted to do all of my life. I went for a three day retreat at The Abbey of Gethsemane in Trappist, Kentucky. As a long time reader of poet and monk, Thomas Merton, it was a delight to be at the place where he was a monk for 27 years. My web page dedicated to Thomas Merton gives details of his life. My Thomas Merton Journal, More Thoughts in Solitude, gives the background of much of my reading related to him. I might also mention that it rained everyday while we were there, which again goes along with his Rain and the Rhinocerous Essay. (See Rhinocerous) Overall it was a meaningful spiritual experience. And the highlight of the trip? Meaning Sister Helen Prejean, the author of Dead Man Walking.


TRAVEL THE NET

I recently got a real shock when I saw what Joe Harkins, editor of Travel the Net, wrote about the Web Surfer Travel Journal. He writes, "Dan K. Phillips' Web Surfer Travel Journal lists dozens of sites built around diaries of their owners highly personal adventures. Many are by gifted amateurs but his own professionally written journal, "Four Corners - A Literary Excursion Across America," sets a standard that Mark Twain might have respected.

Joe's weekly column is syndicated nationally. His theme of writing is taken from a quote by Henry James, "We travel to find ourselves." "I doubt that seeking to change themselves ia a conscious intention for most leisure travelers buy it is an unavoidable consequence," he adds. Thanks Joe for the nice remarks.

FLY FREE, STAY CHEAP!

I recently received Vicki Mills Book, Fly Free, Stay Cheap! She gives numerous helps on ways of getting free air tickets (mostly via frequent travel programs and bonus points) and ways of going around the world when you wish. For more information check out Platypus Publications.

E-MAIL NEEDED!

Did I get any e-mail from you? What is your favorite travel site? Where have you visited lately that is interesting? Let me know! I will check it out for our readers and explorers.

Send your e-mail please. Let the editor know what you want, ok?

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
