So….I’ve recently been offered to work with a new start up online travel magazine. It’s a pretty exciting opportunity because it’s talking about something I actually enjoy, to explore, to find something new, an experience unique from anyone else…to escape the monotony of a daily grind, whilst trying to find a memory or place that remains paradise… physically and mentally.
“travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer”.
After reading this on a good friends facebook I realised it’s so easy to get caught up with earning money and impressing the people next to you, we sometimes forget about the places around us. They blur into bland wallpaper and we lose sight of beauty. Travelling is the one thing that somewhat untangles that financial struggle, it changes the boring wallpaper. I sometimes find it hard to part with my money, but to spend a few 100 quid on going somewhere completely foreign, experiencing a different culture…well that lasts a life time, unlike the £40 t shirt that survives 4-5 cycles in a washing machine.
So, the editor contacted me from Escapist Traveller, I had to complete a brief on somewhere I visited that stood out, that meant something special to me, a paradise in my own world.
