Notes from my travels…
A collection of travel writing which is less about places and more about introspection. Different things stand out to different people when they see new places; these are some of the things that stood out for me, from Japan to Calais to my own backyard – because I’m a firm believer in the statement “You don’t have to go far from home to travel.”
