Wanderer Writes Wanderer Writes

Wanderer Writes brings you stories about off the beaten path destinations, focusing on ancient ruins and nature; avoiding mass tourism even in the best-known and most visited places of our planet. Destinations most covered are Mexico (with a focus on Mayan ruins and culture), and the American Desert Southwest, but you'll find stories about European destinations, the American Northwest and others from around the world.
