Notes from the Road – Travels in City and Country
Adding a compliment to one of our posts here at adventurelogue is certainly a good way to get me to check out your website, but I can’t guarantee that we’ll pimp your pixels, unless of course you’ve put together a site of such incomparable beauty that I can’t believe I haven’t heard about it before.
Such is the case with Erik Gauger’s Notes from the Road.I’m really struggling to recall another site that is as visually appealing as this one. It features Gauger’s stunning landscape photography from trips around the world as the backdrop for some pretty engaging travel writing. I also recommend checking out his ‘Along the Way‘ section of humorous photos from the road. But I’ll let Erik describe the project himself:
“Notes from the Road is a project in experimental travel writing – it is about subjective travel; the kind of real world of random things and real people.
Notes from the Road looks at a handful of connected regions from the perspective of the outsider looking in. By road, by kayak, by seaplane and most of all on foot, I try to tackle the themes of city and country in the modern world.”
“Notes from the Road stories are sketched on the road, with only one or two edits afterwords. I travel on tight budgets, often to ordinary places.
I started this project in December 1999 to humor and entertain my friends. Since I have moved about from place to place in whole life, I needed a way to keep in touch.”
