I spent a few days in Chennai on my recent trip to India, and really enjoyed staying in the Triplicane district. Not wanting to do much touristy stuff, I was quite happy getting some work done in my hotel, and then take little wanders about the nearby streets during the mornings or evenings to get some good pictures of the Triplicane locals….
Happy Photo Friday!

In this week’s Monday Meetings we hear from Dave Gill, a talented videographer and ambitious adventurer. He’s working on an exciting new travel project and flexing his documentary making muscles… along the route.

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.
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.…
