Our Story


We all love an adventure. But while there's never a shortage of inspirations for us to drool over, it currently takes too many hours of research to figure out how to best do them.

So we made The Travel Brief to let travellers document their journeys in a way that’s not only meaningful to themselves, but also useful for other travellers who are planning their own adventures.

Our hope is to have enough useful information that it's possible for anyone to travel any part of the world as if it's their own city. Help us make it happen!
