A narrative platform, a visual documentation, a thoughtful voice, a dedication to the craft of storytelling, an exploration of our connectivity and morality: The Travelling Editor is the blank canvas to it all – with travel and tourism as its frame.
It is our aim to document ‘travel’ in its most holistic depiction; in addition to its most-associated pleasure-seeking, jet-setting, foreign-sampling, passport-stamping ideals, what we strive to uncover is the essence of travelling within its extremities: how it forces us to expose and overcome our vulnerabilities and unfamiliarities; how it oscillates between overstimulating and calming our senses and mind; how it confronts acceptance as much as prejudice of our own and those we visit; how its tourism industry impacts livelihoods and ecosystems beneficially as well as harmfully; how its providers and policymakers govern the contentment and wellbeing of all its recipients, customers and workers alike.
With it, we ponder if our quest for knowledge and first-hand experiences is doing more to improve or damage the world we cohabit – or else, leaving us more unfulfilled and ignorant than before.
Ultimately, through our investigations and discoveries, we are seeking to determine and disseminate the fundamental goodness of travel, be it social, environmental or self. So that we – our writers, our readers, our travellers and humanity – can shape the present and future into a more empathetic time and place with the power of travel.
