Find out more about the loveEXPLORING website and team
We've got a confession to make: we're travel addicts. We've got a perpetual case of wanderlust. When working we're constantly pining for the warmth of the tropical sunshine on some faraway island, and when at home we're almost always thinking about packing up and escaping on the next plane, train or boat.
This website is the manifestation of our passion: exploration. We've employed and commissioned some of the finest travel writers and adventurers to bring you tales of little-visited Icelandic cities, tips on how to keep the kids happy on holiday and pictures of some of Europe's smallest but most sensational destinations. We've got fresh perspectives and insider tips on cities like London, Paris, New York and Tokyo, and some incredible photography of our Earth from above.
Whatever your travel tastes, we've got something you'll love. We cover everything from brilliant budget breaks to affordable luxury and the down-right extravagant. We've got city guides, destination features and gorgeous galleries, and we scour the web each week for the latest travel news and deals.
loveEXPLORING is brought to you by digital publisher Love Incorporated, who also publish loveMONEY.com, lovePROPERTY and loveFOOD.com. We aim to provide seriously inspirational travel editorial for independent-minded travellers who are looking to invest in those extra-special experiences to make their trips unforgettable.
