Adventure-Culture travel narrative, with social, historical, political reporting.
Borders of Adventure® is one of the leading culture and adventure travel blogs, looking at the world with a socially conscious angle to change perceptions of misunderstood places.
It remains as one of the first and original independent travel blogs pioneering social, historical and political reporting alongside adventure-culture destination narrative.
Focusing particularly on misunderstood destinations, the website constantly strives to address topical issues relating to travel practices and which affect traffic footfall to a country, in the attempt to overcome misconceptions.
If travelling to a well-established or popular destination, Borders of Adventure aims to try and find a different angle on it in order to entice readers to dig a little deeper and see more of it outside of the must-do lists.
Borders of Adventure is primarily written in an easily digestible, journalistic reporting style, with articles accompanied by professional photography to remain wholly informative.
The underlining message of the content posted is to inspire readers to travel differently, adventurously, responsibly and with purpose.
