About us

Faraway Worlds is an online travel magazine for travellers who love learning a bit more about the destinations they visit. We share insider travel tips, little-known stories and local recipes from around the world.

We especially love stories – stories about personal experiences, ancient myths, history and fairytales. We try to capture a small piece of the places we’ve been, the places we love and the places that shaped us. Of course, travel also has its practical side, so we write travel guides and tips for people who want a starting point for planning their trips.

We tend to travel slowly, and we do our best to travel responsibly as well. For us, that means taking the time to get to know a region or city, being aware of the effect tourism has on different societies and trying to make deliberate choices about what we do and where we stay. Of course, in practice, that looks different depending where you go, and we don’t always get it right.

Ultimately, we believe that travel is more than visiting a new place – it’s about getting a greater understand of the histories, cultures and peoples of different regions and gaining a small bit of insight into their worlds.
