Share Your Travel Story

Along with traveling, do you have a passion for writing?

I started this travelogue because I wanted a place to share travel stories in an informal way without the need to validate any literary capabilities with degrees in literature, years of professional experience, portfolios, etc.—I just want to write.

Whether you're a seasoned writer, a journalism major, or a wanderer with stories to tell, feel free to share them here. The Vagabond Gazette was created to connect the traveler community and together compose one big story.​

Please note

Although this website is packed with informative content, planned-out itineraries, travel guides, and more, the heart of it lies within the travelogues published on the home page (aka "Travelogue" page) by travelers far and wide. These are stories told by vagabonds alike and can be written how ever: they stand alone and should not be confused with the other more structured content in the "Destination" or "Lifestyle" pages. I am not looking for more content writers at the moment, only travelogues.

Travelogue Requirements

  • be about a current or very recent travel and based on one location at a time

  • written in English in the 1st person (your perspective) and between 500-1200 words

  • come with at least two relevant photos that complement the written story

Your story will not be published if

  • it contains any plagiarism or AI content

  • the photos are not your own or are unclear, bad quality or irrelevant to your written story

  • it is unreadable and contains too many grammar errors

If your travelogue meets all requirements, after you submit it below you will receive an email asking you for the photos. If all is well, expect your travelogue to be published shortly.
