THE JOURNEY. THE IMAGES. THE SCENTS. THE KNOWLEDGE. THE SENSES. THE ENCOUNTERS. PEOPLE. INSPIRATION. EXPERIENCES. WE EXPLORE. WE DISCOVER. WE SEEK THE UNKNOWN. IT IS A NATURAL HUMAN INATE REACTION. AN INNER NEED. ALMOST LIKE OXYGEN. TO WIDEN OUR HORIZONS. TO SEE WHAT IS OUT THERE. TO BECOME BETTER.

THERE IS A TRAVELLER INSIDE EACH AND EVERYONE OF US. THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE. THINK OF MANKIND. MIGRATION, THE GRAND EXPLORERS. WE ‘VE ALWAYS BEEN ADVENTUROUS. WE ‘VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THE WORLD WAS NOT ENOUGH.

IT ISNT. THANK GOD! AND WE VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SHARE THAT FEELING. THE JOY OF DISCOVERY. THE JOY OF THE JOURNEY. TO MAKE OTHER PEOPLE WANT TO FOLLOW OUR STEPS. TO PUT THEMSELVES IN OUR SHOES. PUN INTENDED. LIKE A CALL TO ACTION. LIKE A NOT SO SECRET SOCIETY OF RESTLESS WANDERERS. FLANEURS, IF YOU PLEASE, EXCUSE MY FRENCH!

THAT AMAZING MUSEUM. A BACK ALLEY I FOUND ALL BY MYSELF ALL BY ACCIDENT. A NEW HIDDEN GEM IN MY FAVORITE CITY. A GREAT BARGAIN AT THE FLEA MARKET. FOR YOU. THE VIEW FROM THE ROOM. WHICH WE SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR. THAT LOVELY LITTLE LOCAL BISTROT. THE NATURE. THE SCENERY. THE TRADITIONAL OUTFITS. THE MUSIC. THE ARCHITECTURE. LOOK WHAT I VE DISCOVERED. LIFE.

SO MUCH TO SEE. SO MUCH TO DO. SO MUCH TO TAKE IN. I NEED TIME. I NEED PLANNING. REALLY, SOMETIMES I FEEL I M IN A DOCUMENTARY. ALL THAT LIFE GOING ON RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES. REALLY, I HAVE TO TAKE ALL IN. SNAPSHOTS.

PERU IN 4 DAYS! YOU MUST BE KIDDING! BUT WHY NOT? YOU DECIDE FOR YOURSELF. ONE DOESNT NECESSARILY NEED A LOT OF DAYS. OR MONEY. OR CONNECTIONS. OR RESEARCH. OR SOOO MUCH PLANNING. ONE ONLY NEEDS THE URGE. THE WILL. THE DECISION. TO GET UP. AND EMBRACE THE VOICE INSIDE. EMBRACE THE WORLD.

YES, I WANT TO SEE THE WORLD. ALL OF IT. OR AS MUCH AS I POSSIBLY CAN. BUT IN A NEW EXCITING WAY. FOR I MAKE PART OF A NEW EXCITING GENERATION OF TRAVELLERS. THOSE WHO HAVE DONE IT ALL, SEEN IT ALL, TASTED IT ALL. THE RESORTS. THE FLAT BEDS. THE GAP YEAR. THE SABBATICALS. THE BACK-PACKING. THE BUSINESS CLASS AND THE LOW COST UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS. THE 6 MONTH WAITING FOR THAT TABLE IN THAT RESTO DU JOUR. THE MOLECULAR NON EDIBLE FOAMS AND THE HEAVENLY EATING OF A CRUNCHY BAGUETTE AND SOME SOFT MOUTH WATERING BRIE SEATED ON A PARISIAN PAVEMENT, DISAPROVING LOOKS AND ALL, CIRCA 1994!

YES, INDEED! WE VE ALL MORE OR LESS DONE ALL OF THOSE THINGS. AND NOW WE SEEK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL.
THE SPIRIT OF PLACE. THE SOUL OF THE JOURNEY. THE ESSENCE OF JOIE DE VIVRE. AND OF JOIE DE TRAVELLING.

THE TRAVEL MANIFESTO. THE NEW PUBLICATION FOR THOSE KIND OF PERIPATETIC TRAVELLERS. DECONSTRUCTED, YET WITH ESSENCE. BARE, YET FLAMBOYANT. DOWN TO EARTH, YET RECHERCHE. SIMPLE, YET COMPLEX. JUST LIKE THE WORLD.

THE TRAVEL MANIFESTO. A COOL AND RANDOM GATHERING OF THOUGHTS, IMAGES, FEELINGS AND EXPERIENCES TO BE SHARED. FOR KNOWELEDGE IS REAL ONLY WHEN SHARED. PASSION BECOMES ACTIONS ONLY WHEN INFUSED. REAL PEOPLE TRAVELLING AROUND THAT WORLD OF OURS. IN A REAL WAY. NO AGENDAS. NO GOALS. NO HIGHER CAUSES. JUST A HUMAN NATURAL APPROACH TO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING NEW. AWE. BEWILDERNESS. EXCITEMENT. JOY. IF THAT JOY CAN BE TRANSCENDED, SO MUCH THE BETTER. IF MORE PEOPLE DECIDE TO GET UP, GET OUT, GET MOVING, SO MUCH THE BETTER. I KNOW, I LL KEEP DOING EXACTLY THAT.

MOST PEOPLE WANT TO BE GIVEN THE MOON. WELL, WE CAN ONLY OFFER YOU THE EARTH. SEE YOU OUT THERE.
