Inspiration for Creative Writing While Traveling

As a writer who’s often trying to keep herself on track for stories, poetry, and whatever novel might be in the cooker, inspiring yourself to write while you’re traveling is sometimes hard.  But if you’re always traveling, then you’re never writing…and then you can’t really call yourself a writer anymore, can you?

It’s easy enough to write in your journal about your thoughts or what you did that day or even some introspective navel-gazing (“The rest of the world is exactly the same…we are all one.”) but sometimes writing fiction can be difficult; after all, if they tell you to “write what you know” (which they do, in fact, tell you), it’s pretty hard to write anything but “stranger from out of town comes, sees interesting things” stories.  So how do you get and stay inspired while traveling?
