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.

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.   

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, "A person should hear a little music, read a little poetry and see a fine picture everyday of his/her life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God had implanted in the human soul." In essence that is what an everyday tourist does.
