Geographic Expeditions (GeoEx) is proud to announce that two stories published on its Wanderlust blog have been honored with awards in the 2019 Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.

SATW’s Lowell Thomas Competition is widely recognized as the premier travel journalism competition in North America. This year’s contest attracted 1,335 entries and was judged by the journalism faculty at the University of Missouri. In addition to GeoEx’s Wanderlust, other multiple-award winning publications included Outside, National Geographic Traveler, Afar, and the New York Times.

Edited by veteran travel writer and editor Don George, Wanderlust features articles and essays by literary luminaries such as Pico Iyer, Jan Morris, Tim Cahill, and Isabel Allende, as well as work by up-and-coming literary stars and GeoEx’s own world-exploring staffers.

“We’re thrilled that Wanderlust has achieved this recognition and distinction for the second year in a row,” said GeoEx President Jean-Paul Tennant. “Many travel companies have blogs, but none match the creativity and literary quality of our Wanderlust. In the same way that Wanderlust’s award-winning stories distinguish it from other travel companies’ blogs, we believe that this same high standard of quality and imagination distinguish our award-winning offerings in the field.”

The two Wanderlust stories that were singled out as winners in the 2019 SATW Competition were:

Best Article on Foreign Travel: Anne Sigmon, “Hemingway, Cuba & Me

Best Cultural Tourism Article: Andrew Van Wey, “Keyboard Dreams: Observing a Virtual Rite of Passage in Korea

Wanderlust Editor in Chief Don George is an award-winning travel writer with his own collection of stories, The Way of Wanderlust. He also wrote the bestselling Lonely Planet Guide to Travel Writing and has edited numerous travel anthologies.
