Why Do We Travel

Sitting on a beach on the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, three weeks into a three month overseas adventure, the question has come to my mind: what is it we hope to gain from travel? For some, a holiday is simply a chance to enjoy time with their family/boyfriend/girlfriend/friends in a relaxed setting. For others,…

400 Words: Fear

I am those knots in your stomach. Those sweaty palms. Thump, thump, thump. That’s me, making your heart beat faster. Work harder. I’m that nervous tic, that furrowed brow, that biting at your lip. I am the unseen. That voice. Those unrelenting thoughts. I am fear. And I am here for very good reasons. I…

The Rise of the Nomad

Sure, there were the hints that the transitional season between summer and winter was arriving in the crisp mornings and evenings, but nothing that you could really see. Here in Spain, it’s autumn and there’s no…
