An everyday tourist is a wanderer, someone with curiosity, who seeks new experiences, fosters a sense of adventure and has an eye for the road less travelled. He/she takes the time to look, listen and reflect on everyday experiences - wherever and whenever. We are freelance writers who love to research and write about all things urban - locally and globally.”

What we do.....

We have branded ourselves as "everyday tourists" as that is our approach to life.  We are both freelance writers focused on all aspects of urban living, design, development and travel.    

"I find your “investigative” sleuthing makes me re-think and re-examine my urban environment.  I sometimes find myself in a situation re-examining a streetscape or a public space and wonder how the Everyday Tourist might interpret the situation as compared to how I am seeing it…" R. Wright ROAN Consulting
