About Written From Travel

Our Mission

Written From Travel, the new online travel publication was founded on a belief that travel is one of the most effective bridges connecting people, experiences, and cultures. Through travel, we engage in cross-cultural exploration and self-reflection.

By sharing our experiences, we inspire others to do the same. In turn, we plant the seeds for human growth, empathy, understanding and solidarity.

It is our mission to plant these seeds by inspiring others to travel. We carry out this mission by publishing writers, journalists and story-tellers that bring the world to you.

We encourage two forms of travel. One that is physical; and one that is in the abstract – and is no less important or effective.

The works published on our site provide the material to guide your physical travels, and to foster cross-cultural explorations and self-reflection in the quiet space of the mind.

At the same time, we seek to make travel writing accessible to all by providing a platform for diverse and varying voices and experiences. 

Our Vision & Aims

Our aim is to be an open, inclusive platform that successfully facilitates cross-cultural exploration and self-reflection by publishing works that guide, and inspire, your travels.

Through our content, we endeavour to promote new experiences. As such, we support the exploration of themes that pervade and prevail across cultures, societies and peoples. 

We achieve this by creating a space in which it is safe to explore the intricacies of travel, and of every cultural thematic universe: all the wonders, the colours, the sounds, the troubles, the dangers.

The Written From Travel vision is made reality thanks to the writers and creators that share their voices.

Our Unique Format

Written From Travel features a unique signature on every article published on the site.

Every work, whether it be in the Travel Guides, News, Blogs, Tips, or Long Read sections, will include the tag line ‘Written From… [Location]’.

The purpose of this is twofold.

First, it can be used as a literary mechanism that challenges the author to push the boundaries of her / his creativity. How does the author’s presence play into the contemplative space of words and images in an article?

Second, it creates a unique footprint that emphasises the personal, contextual dimension in and beyond every article.

It forces the reader, always at odds with the cold indifference of the screen, to consider the very humanness of every published work.

At Written From Travel, someone is writing to you from the other side of your world.

How Written From Travel Started

Written From Travel, the new online travel publication, was born from the passion of two young travellers, Megan and Luis, living in a camper van whilst travelling down the east coast of Australia. Their aim was to document their adventures and share their experiences with the world.

Fuelled by a desire to create a supportive community where travellers could come together, exchange insights, and inspire one another, the platform quickly grew into a hub for wanderlust seekers. Rooted in the belief that the best stories are those shared, Written From Travel invites fellow explorers to contribute their narratives, tips, and anecdotes, fostering a space where every journey is celebrated and every voice is heard.

Whether it’s offering practical advice, sharing hidden gems, or simply reliving memorable moments, Written From Travel is a testament to the power of storytelling and the camaraderie that unites travellers worldwide.
