This article examines Samuel Taylor Coleridge's travels. It suggests that Coleridge's passion for travel and travel writing began in his small-town childhood, where he passed the first decade of his life never voyaging more than a dozen miles from his hometown. The article discusses Coleridge's travel to Wales in 1794, to the British Midlands in 1796, to Germany from 1798 to 1799, to the Caribbean and the Continent from 1800 to 1802, and to Italy and Malta from 1804 to 1806.
