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 freelance writers focused on urban living, design, development and travel.
