These are the stories.

Sometimes a trip inspires a story. Sometimes a story inspires a trip. We invite others to share their travel experiences, advice, stories and perspectives.

We try to see the world with eyes wide open, but we know that our frame of reference shapes our travel experiences. We want to create a community where others can share what inspires them and how they see the world through their own personal lens.

We’ve created a simple survey with writing prompts to make this easy. Fill it out, and we will do the writing and editing. Nothing will be published without your permission. See Brent’s story as a good example of how this can work.

All submissions are welcome.
