I've overheard many fellow travel writers offer the opinion that lists of various sorts are deeply inferior to any and all narrative travel writing. Others have suggested that lists are slowly crowding out real travel writing entirely. C'mon now. Let's agree for a few provisional minutes that the purpose of travel writing is, very generally, to inspire people...
