According to Huffington Post, “in seasonal migrations, holiday spots, gap-year travelling, Sunday afternoon walks and RVs complete with satellite dishes.” It provides everything from food guides, travel guides to coffee-table books and reports of remote places to feed our imagination and wanderlust.
