About us

Faraway worlds don’t just belong in fairy tales.

Here, we tell stories about the places we’ve been, the places we love and the places that have shaped us. We share a small part of the experiences we’ve had while travelling, and the meaning we’ve made from our journeys.

The world is vast, beautiful and sometimes tragic. Eventually, we want to tell stories that go beyond travel – exploring the histories, cultures and people of different regions and getting a small bit of insight into their worlds.
