NOT YOUR USUAL TRAVEL BLOG

Responsible Travel Yet Luxury Travel

Eco-travel doesn’t need to be miserably bare. Luxury travel doesn’t need to be soulless. Inside the Travel Lab brings you the best of the world while also striving to make the world a better place.

Historic Travel Yet Active Travel

History helps us understand the world and our place in it better. Adventure keeps us alive. There’s no need to decide between stuffy museums and pulse-racing fear. Inside the Travel Lab covers both history and adventure without the boring or barren bits.

Inspirational Travel Yet Cynical Travel

Hey, I live in the real world. I worked as a hospital doctor after all. Bad things come to us all, frequently for no reason. People cheat and inspirational quotes can be nauseating. But also… Inspiration and purpose is the only thing that matters in this world. It’s not a race to the bottom. But a challenge to rise to the top. Inspirational travel. Questioning travel. Impassioned travel.

Plus, plenty of travel photography tips
