I wanted to share this experience with others so they could be inspired to visit or live vicariously through the journey.

For hundreds of years, tapestries have been used to detail important events and preserve the history of the local people. In keeping with this tradition, author W.E. Welbourne crafted his own tapestry of Latin American culture.

In “Cruising the Latin Tapestry”, Welbourne takes readers on a thrilling expedition through 24 countries. By integrating information about the culture, scenery and history of the area, readers can gain insight into this beautiful part of the world.

In addition to his many travels, Welbourne has many years of experience as an educator and served as an instrumental figure in Papua New Guinea’s independence. While teaching English as a second language in Papua New Guinea, Welbourne worked with other leaders to create change and gain the country’s independence.

As illustrated by his work in Papua New Guinea, Welbourne has demonstrated his passion for cultures and the histories associated with these communities. Welbourne uses this passion in his tale of his journeys.

“The extraordinary beauty and colorful vigor of the area were unlike anywhere else in the world,” Welbourne said. “I wanted to share this experience with others so they could be inspired to visit or live vicariously through the journey.”

Welbourne’s tale provides readers with the opportunity to broaden their horizons and engage with an amazing area of the world.
