Ben is not simply a blogger and Road Less Travelled not simply a blog. He is a creative and talented artist capable of bringing together the craft of writing and the art of photography in a way that blends seamlessly creating an immersive experience for the reader. His work isn’t simply a blog with ‘how-to’ tips, ‘where to stay’ advice or ‘top ten’ style click-bait articles. Road Less Travelled is experiential travel, thought-provoking psychology and awe-inspiring cultural journeys. Ben writes and photographs in such a way that the reader gains an emotional and sensory experience of a destination, concept or idea without needing to travel anywhere. Of course, his work still has all the details that help people make the right decisions when travelling the globe however, it’s much more than that.
Ben’s experience in psychology and philosophy give him an ability to articulate his experiences in an incredibly vivid and unique way. It’s this journey of story-telling and imagery that takes readers away and this is what makes Road Less Travelled so unique.
