Original Travelogues

--------------

Mr. Burrow's mother had a long tradition of keeping detailed records of all the family vacations. She shared these in the form of travel letters that she sent to her penpals around the world.

Margaret Burrow, David's sister, kept up this tradition when she was studying in Europe during college. She sent back regular installments of a very detailed account of her travels.

More recently David Burrow has taken up the torch. He has written extensively about his travels, compiling more than fifty lengthy travelogues detailing the people, places, and things he has encountered around the country and throughout the world. Many of these writings (some edited, and some in their entirety) are featured as links from this page. The majority have been recently revised and are given here in Acrobat/.pdf format.

Mr. Burrow has been keeping travel diaries for a long time. Here he is in 1977 keeping track of the family's journey to Alaska.

(While Mr. Burrow didn't care a lot for Dallas as a whole, Thanksgiving Square is one of the most beautiful and inspiring places he's ever been.)
