Just another travel blog

Here it is: my attempt at a travel blog. I am neither naive, nor a cock-eyed optimist, and I know how hard it is to break into travel writing, let alone to become successful at it.

But as one of those famous travel maxims (much like the one I named my blog after) goes:

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. — Lao Tzu

So here is my single step.

Given the sheer amount of travel I have lined up this year, I feel that I should at least give it a red hot go.

I hope to provide my readership with wit, whim and richness of detail: not just with annals of my travels but also commentary, narrative, food for thought, and photologues. And, if all goes to plan, this humble beginning will hopefully spark some debates about and call into question some of the clichés, assumptions, flogged-to-death travel tropes, and overlooked gems about travel.

I look forward to embarking on the journey! First stop: Lisbon.
