Indie Travel Manifesto

Above is the Indie Travel Manifesto as presented by As you may remember they started a weekly community blogging project back in January and the first prompt was 'What makes an Indie traveller?'. The above manifesto is a culmination of that prompt, no doubt inspired by the many blog responses and in some part the knowledge of their experienced staff and contributors.

I've taken part in a couple of their weekly prompts and reading the contributions from other blogger's has certainly opened my eyes to new experiences and increased the number of places I would like to visit!

Although I tend to shy away from labels and find terms such as 'indie' or 'alternative' a bit woolly I fully endorse the Indie Travel Manifesto. I believe it can provide the framework for which we should all approach future travel ventures. Even a weekend away or a day trip down the road can provide a opportunity to better yourself and/or have a positive impact on the places you visit and the people you meet.
