Today the Monday Meetings introduce us to Paul, a man on various missions, who took the time to explain the How’s and Why’s of his travel philosophy. Since he wrote these musings, he has hitch-hiked from Catania, Sicily, all the way to Athens, where he’d found a boat to join as a crew member, and then spent a few months island hopping…, learning to sail, and free-diving in deep lagoons.
A post from Gozo, the smaller cousin of Malta.
Just after Christmas Day of 2011, I spent ten days on the charming island of Gozo…, until early in the new year. Malta and Gozo are very different places, materially and culturally.

Another Monday, which means more Monday Meetings. But it’s ok, this is the fun type, where we talk to interesting people who’ve done interesting things – trying to find out what life is really all about!
Today we’d like you to meet Stuart, a traveller with the world on his mind, who kindly answered a few of our questions about How and Why he travels.…

Have you ever been told ‘No Photos Allowed’? Sometimes it is completely justified. Other times, it can seem a little misplaced.
The Rise of Electronic Imagery.
Digital photography is on the up and up. More and more people use digital cameras everyday…, whether that’s the one on their mobile phone, a point-and-shoot, or by purchasing a ‘pro-sumer’ level camera.
Consumers in developed nations, the growing middle classes in countries where electronics are manufactured, and many other new markets have a huge array of image capturing devices at their disposal.
