Keith Bellows: A Traveler Arrives At His Final Destination…

September 1, 2015

Listening to Keith Bellows’ presentation as he spoke at the ACT 5 Experience last year on October 8, one could hear in his speech that Keith was talking about his journey, his future, his final travel trip and his final destination. I have known and worked with Keith since he was an editor at Whittle Communications in Knoxville, TN. We became good friends and we continued that relationship while he was at the helm of National Geographic Traveler.

Keith and I spoke few weeks ago. He was still looking forward to the future, to new ventures. He was upbeat and determined to beat the illness that took a toll on him. Little did he, or I, know that he was going to take his final journey way too soon. This is the first journey that Keith is not going to report on or even write an article about. Rest in peace Keith Bellows and thanks for the memories and works that you’ve left behind. They will help all those who knew you to continue the journey and remember you one memory at a time.
