This is a blog about finding unusual journeys. About bringing travel inspiration home with you, even if you can’t be on the road. About laughing at the crazy things we humans do and sparing a thought for those in need. About learning about the world and, yes, as cheesy as it sounds, trying to make it a better place.
It’s about adventure, it’s about luxury. It’s about history, tragedy, laughter and photography. It’s not about competing with myself to see how many times I can fit the word “about” into an About page, no matter how it appears right now. Well, OK, maybe it is a little.
Above all else, it’s about…
Travel Inspiration for Cynics
At my core, I’m a slushy sentimentalist with an ideological drive to make the world a better place. Trouble is, I’m also a diehard cynic with a pathological urge to question everything I read, see or hear. Usually, I manage to keep that to myself. But I also managed to find a few careers that encourage that sort of behaviour, namely science, medicine and journalism.
Scrubs, Lenses and Laptops
These days, I work as a journalist and photographer but like all good writers, I trained in neuroscience research, headed to medical school and then worked for several years as a doctor in Emergency Medicine.
It’s that scientific background that explains the name Inside the Travel Lab. To me, a lab is a place for insight and discovery, for inspiration and for looking at a “problem” in a whole new way. To be inside that, is to be right where the action is.
So that’s where we are. Inside the Travel Lab, exploring the world.
Thanks for stopping by.
