There is a distinct category of articles I write, which I initially thought was a collection of random things. Just random topics and observations, which aren’t quite travel stories, nor are they travel guides.

But after blogging for some years, I realised they weren’t random at all. They just didn’t fit into the blog categories for those who are interested in a destination, because while the topic is often instigated by travelling somewhere, it isn’t really about the place itself. Usually, the travel experience just provides a segue to a more general or meta topic about our world, about people as human beings, and about areas of knowledge.

So this is a collection of those articles.
