diariesof is not just another travel magazine. diariesof will be a bi-annual magazine with editorial content prepared by an international team of contributors, including photographers, bloggers and travellers. Each issue covers one country exclusively. The different sections of the magazine offer personal experiences on adventurous accounts, genuine and independent testimonials, exclusive interviews with talented individuals and reliable evidence of social and humanitarian projects.

- to inspire others to travel!
- to continue to be inspired by all the people we met/meet when travelling.
- to raise awareness of the social divide that is present in most countries.
- to give something back to all the persons we met in our travels.
- because this is not just another travel magazine and certainly not a travel guide. This magazine will make your mind travel and it will inspire you to get out on the road yourself.
- because this is the first travel 'bookazine' which you will want to collect and keep, to read all over again, once you reach the last page.
- because diariesof offers several points of view; it offers stories from different writers, different photographers, fellow travellers and locals from around the world.
- because each issue is 'hand-made'. This is no 'fast-food' magazine. We take our time to prepare each issue, because quality takes time.
- because each issue will feature a social or humanitarian topic, so that you see the other side of the story.
- if you can think of another good reason to support diariesof, we truly are curious to hear it. Let us know.

About the project owner
The founders are a small but enthusiastic team of two, ably assisted by other international contributors. We are passionate about both travel and photography.
We have travelled the 7 continents and visited numerous countries. After our most recent trip, 6 months around South America on a motorbike, we feel the world just keeps getting bigger, not smaller. Our motorbike is our favourite (but obviously not exclusive) means of seeing the world.
