Travel writing
Class
The genre of travel writing covers a range of different subgenres. Some forms are meant to be purely informative or educational, such as guide books. Others follow a narrative format, such as travelogues, that describe the writer's personal travels and experiences.

A travelogue can be defined as a record made by a voyager, generally in diary form. A travelogue contains descriptions of the traveler's experiences, and is normally written during the course of the journey, with the intention of updating friends or family on the journey.— Excerpted from Travel writing on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
