As a writer and inveterate traveller I’m always looking to uncover stories and share the experiences of my wanderings. But like most people, I’m not always in the field. One thing I’ve learned is that you don’t have to be on the road to access the sorts of experiences and insights wrought through travel. One manner of ‘exploration’ that can happen anywhere is to find and speak with people who do, or have done, unique and interesting things – thereby partaking in their journeys. To share their experiences with others seems to me to be a very worthwhile thing.
To do that I created The Planisphere.
Here you’ll find posts that touch on the theme of exploration – literal and allegorical. The actual subjects broached can be almost anything.
