Our Latest Blog Posts

Our blog posts cover an eclectic range of topics and destinations. In sharing our experiences, we hope to inspire you to travel to off the beaten path destinations and seek out unconventional things to see and do in better-known places. Niche topics include abandoned places, street art, Soviet-era monuments and Brutalist architecture, but you’ll also find ‘what to do guides’ and other invaluable tips to help you plan your journey along the path less travelled. Although we have posts spanning six continents, lately our focus has been on Asia (notably, Taiwan and Southeast Asia), and the New East – Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Baltic states, and Central Asia.
