Travels of Adam showcases a fresh way to travel by featuring unique and personal stories from around the world, including a popular series of Hipster City Guides. The top-rated website strives to be a voice for this new generation of travelers: modern, open-minded millennials with a strong interest in city destinations, alternative tourism, and creative ideas.
For the queer, the stylish, the straight, the millennials. We travel to see, to learn, to do and to think. We travel both far and near. We travel with an open mind, an eagerness to discover the world we live in. We travel with a desire to get lost and maybe to find something in the process. We travel to meet new people—fellow travelers and locals alike—who can introduce us to new ideas, new things, new adventures. We travel with respect, compassion, and understanding for others.
