Redefining travel for the #wildlycurious.

Roamscapes began in 2012 as a personal travel journal, but over the years, we’ve evolved into a blog focusing on culture, slow travel, and sustainability. Now that the world is learning not to take these adventures for granted, our goal is to redefine travel – in the context of tourism.

To travel is to understand

Roamscapes shares inspiration, practical tips, and advice for those of us who travel to challenge ourselves and discover new perspectives in life. Instead of just covering a destination, we also seek to uncover the stories of the people and communities we meet along the way. These personal encounters, and the cultural immersion they offer, are important reminders for us to approach life with an open mind, warm heart, and ready smile.

We recognize that travel is a privilege and thus, we also hope our stories can convince you to embrace sustainable tourism.

We are guests, not customers

Brooke Thio · Founder

Brooke started Roamscapes in 2012 after realizing – in the wake of a bad breakup – that in addition to writing, she loved solo travel and exploring unfamiliar cultures beyond her island home of Singapore. Since then, her stories have been published in Lonely Planet Magazine (Asia), food&travel, Meetings & Conventions Asia, Travel Weekly Asia, and more.

An advocate of slow travel, Brooke is usually exploring her latest base by foot, wading through markets and practicing the local tongue.
