Dear Traveler,

Since 2014, Intrepid Times has been publishing narrative travel writing that communicates a strong sense of place, character and discovery. Many of our stories are informative, but we do not seek to publish guides. Here you will find no lists, nor any maps that will be of practical use.

Instead, the stories here seek to use words to do justice to the experience of travel. They focus on the places visited, the characters encountered, and the inner journey of the wanderer which so often mirrors or filters the external journey.

Contributors to Intrepid Times range from well-known journalists to young writers at the beginning of their careers. What we have in common is an insatiable love of travel, and the ambition to share the stories which have helped shape our understanding of the world and of ourselves.

If you have ever looked out of the window of a speeding train or bus at dawn and felt nothing but calm excitement as you beheld a new and strange land open up before you, then you’re one of us, and it’s a privilege to welcome you to this community.
