I’m James. I’m originally from London, but I’ve lived in several other great cities, including Moscow and Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Travel is one of my hobbies, and it’s taken me to over 50 countries in my 26 or so years. Most of my childhood holidays were dreary trips to the same part of Norfolk, so I’m quite proud of my tally.
I love knowing where my friends are going, but I’m not so keen on travel pretence.
This is a blog for people who are turned off by heavily edited selfies with cringey captions, boasts about cultural immersion, authenticity, or fake concern for the environment.
I believe we should recognise that travel is usually pretty selfish and celebrate any opportunity we have to indulge in it.
