Hello and a very big welcome to Expatior.com! Expatior is latin for ‘to wander from the course, to spread out’ – and that is the philosophy of this site.
I try to write about the things that few people, if anyone writes about. Destinations that aren’t really embraced by the normal backpacking circuit, or curiosities in popular places that you might not know about. In other words I try to write about the things I discover as soon as I’ve stepped away from the big name attractions. Yes, I do also cover the famous places that I truly, deeply love, and a lot of them will have been in people’s scopes for years, but they are the glue that links all the odd or out-of-the-way places together and sometimes I’m just so overawed by a particular place that I can’t help but get excited and want to blog about it!
