Welcome to my blog about naturist travel – a series of trip reports, links to naturist resources, and a few random opinion pieces that reflect my meandering musings on clothing-optional recreation.
This effort represents my third project on the web related to social nudity and naturist travel. Admittedly, I’m quite diligent about keeping my naturist life and professional life on separate threads, in this age where nudity is often equivocated with socially deviant behavior in some professional circles. My wife and I are pretty average, run-of-the-mill, (need I mention monogamous!), hard working professionals, but when we go on vacation, if given the choice, we’ll travel as lightly as possible. Simple as that!
This particular project found its genesis with an extraordinary opportunity to live in Europe for a year. This afforded us the luxury to embark on a naturist trek beginning in Spain, and ending up three months later in Greece. (See our travel itinerary here) As the project has matured, I’ve grown increasingly curious about lesser known naturist destinations, such as those in Africa and Asia. Almost without fail, we find that our search for a great naturist place pulls us off the beaten-down tourist path, and deeper into the local culture where everything seems a bit more real. Or dare I say, genuinely naked!
In the end, I’m hoping my blog might morph itself into a cyber-book or some such thing (think: Kindle) carrying a title like No Clothes in My Duffel Bag: A Naturist Travelogue. Maybe that will happen one day, maybe it won’t, but in the meantime, I love reliving our naturist experiences through photography and wordplay. Hoping it might inspire a few others to do the same!
