The "Notes from the Road" Manifesto - Welcome!


Dear Reader,
Notes from the Road is something I’ve been meaning to create for a long time; a place to share travel stories, tips and general wisdom, away from the rhetoric of the travel industry. Here, you won’t find anyone trying to sell you a backpack for £1000...just useful advice and inspiring experiences to keep you fuelled whether you’re planning a trip or on the road as we speak.

As you can see, this blog isn’t exclusive. Nor is it prescriptive. We welcome all kinds of travel and anything that might interest you, though the focus will tend to be on the journey and the act of travelling itself; the interaction with the land, the fleeting encounters and the moments you’ll remember forever, whether of misery or ecstasy!

We hope you enjoy it, and feel free to get involved!
