"Travelling can be a very addictive thing. Sometimes it's the intoxicating intensity of sights, sounds and tastes of a new culture that provides the daily drive for new experiences. For some it's the meeting of new people, both locals with different views on life and also like-minded fellow travelers who share your passions or interests. At other times travel is just a superb escape, a worryless break from the pressures of bills, work and routine. Now that travel has become my job rather than my escape, I like to have a reason for travel, a theme perhaps or a goal: to learn more about Islam, to scope out a new trekking route or visit a country about which not much is known. I've always thought that the difference between travel and tourism is the element of active exploration rather than passive viewing, of seeing the country at eye-level and close-up rather than above or from a distance. I'll always take the discomfort of a local bus rather than the ease of an air-conditioned tourist bus.“ – Bradley Mayhew Features * Preview video with Bradley Mayhew * Photographs * Works in landscape mode * Designed to fit mobile devices * Bookmark the last view * Share with your friends * Rupa Media news feed (apps, design, photography …)
