“Why would you travel through Italy on an organised trip Jane? Europe is EASY”, several friends decried. “We can tell you some great places to go, and you are an experienced traveller.” Well, yes there is truth in that. But I booked on to Intrepid’s “Best of Italy” small group adventure regardless.
There are few things in the world more powerful than the connections us humans make with one another. But connecting with travel is a whole different thing entirely.
Here at Intrepid, we don’t think kids are ever too young to start travelling.* But taking your kids travelling can be a daunting prospect. Will they be safe? What if something goes wrong? What if they get sick?
When we sat down to create our Intrepid Food Adventures, we had a simple mission in mind: to design the most authentic, affordable and awesome ‘real food’ experiences – the kind you see in beautiful magazine spreads or envy-inspiring food documentaries.
Our November photo comp was all about South East Asia, a destination very close to our hearts (and our stomachs). It’s probably one of the most photogenic places on earth, both for candid street shots and big temple-dotted panoramas, but what impressed us most about this month’s submissions were how well they avoided S.E. Asian photo clichés (not as easy as it sounds).

Quality of life varies widely from country to country. Some basic factors that help quantify one’s quality of life include access to shelter, one’s life expectancy, and accessibility of employment. If you had been born in another country, do you think your quality of life would be the same? Would you see a similar life expectancy, or even have access to clean water? It’s impossible to say how different your life would really but – but one travel site has helped us get one step closer to answering these questions.
