This paper presents both a reflection and a discussion of travel literature that is based on a catalog of events which transpired during a journey to London in the fall of 2019. In support of these diary-like writings, there are four literatures used as comparison tools to analyze the tropes, the mentalities and processes behind travelling. The genre of this piece could be classified as creative nonfiction. It entails a form of blending between critical research and personal reflection to create a philosophically-inclined narrative. The authors cited in this paper are Freya Stark, Peter Mayle, Paul Theroux, and Laurence Sterne. These authors were selected somewhat randomly but with an underlying idea that each of their novels are regarded as important travel literature. Understanding that travel writing is a procession of thought is fundamentally crucial when leaning into the idea that traveling is not a permanent lifestyle.
