Two places that inspire travelers to write letters are Post Office Bay in the Galapagos Islands and Paris, France. Both locations have inspired people to write letters for centuries.
Post Office Bay on the island of Floreana is a whaler’s outpost dating back to the 1700s. Wooden barrels held mail from ships on the way out that those returning home delivered. Today, the tradition continues with travelers leaving fully addressed postcards for other travelers to pick up and deliver at the end of a trip.
The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the timeless attraction of Paris inspired many noted authors including Earnest Hemingway when he lived there after World War I. Hemingway’s letters include references to ideas for stories that he had while touring the city’s streets.
