Bootleg books, backpackers and travel writing.


I’m always interested in travel and media piracy, and when the two mix and throw in a dollop of third-world hucksterism, it’s a win/win, as this traveller in Veitnam discovered.

The same site also has a story about how being a travel writer isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and a link to a NY Times story about the generally crappy state of the travel book industry.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
