The perks of travelling off season

September is one of our favorite months to travel. High season is over and crowds finally return home.

Travelling off season has only perks in our books. It’s not about the money, though it helps. It’s about the feelings and experiences: the melancholy of a lonely beach in November or the happiness of those warm first rays of sunshine in an empty little cove in April. The silence of a city like Venice in Winter or a sunset all for yourself in otherwise crowded Mykonos. The sensation of plenitude, loneliness, uniqueness. That feeling of being a traveler more than a tourist. Who doesn’t love it? We certainly do… and it’s a feeling that can be addictive. What about you? Are you off season  junkies like us?

Oh well, then I don’t need magazines, my old photos will do. Me, sitting on the back yard of my highschool being all depressed and thinking I was cool because I listened to very sad songs and read nihilistic books. …
