About Us

What is a Bespoke Traveler?

Bespoke \bi- ‘spōk\ adj. custom-made for a particular individual.

Traveler \’trav-uh-ler\ n. someone who lives to travel.

Bespoke Traveler is a person who seeks out unique journeys, away from the trodden path, that reveal the world and transform the individual.

Our Mission

At Bespoke Traveler, we examine the transformative power of travel through creative storytelling. Our tales go beyond the guidebook to address how travel shapes our world and ourselves, how it affects our perceptions, and how it both creates and destroys new ways of thinking. Through our digital books, journals, and online stories we delve into the importance of adventures, develop relationships with places as well as people, and seek out the unexpected wherever we journey.

BE Inspired. BE Transformed. Bespoke Traveler.

  10. Love the idea of this blog, or better yet: mission. I think every travel, every journey is or should be transformational. At least for me it is. And the key to the transformation is the contact with people, not just mere admiring of buildings, sights etc., but engaging with locals as much as possible. Keep up the good work! Hope some day I will do something similar 🙂

    Have you been out to SE Asia yet? I’m heading that way shortly, and I’d love to read anything you’ve done on that part of the world before I go. Search didn’t turn anything up, but let me know!

    • I’m glad you enjoy my travel posts! I try to share the many interesting curiosities I come across on my travels. Sadly, I haven’t had the opportunity to visit southeast Asia yet.
