About Take Ya There: The pop/reggae singer Sean Kingston famously blares, “We can go to the tropics, sip piña coladas, shorty, I could take ya there…”

Well that’s sort of what the goal with Take Ya There has been, creating a Travel magazine and a travel blog of sorts. In many cases, just telling a story. With any luck, the stories, the travel guides and any tips you find here will take-ya-there, showing you great places across and how to get there.

One thing is clear, at Take Ya There, we strongly believe in Travel. Whether it’s a once-in-a-life-time  act or a crack-like-addiction you just have to keep doing, travel is important. It matters. Travel is a bit different for everyone but in almost every case the end result is the same: a traveler gets lost, finds him (or herself) and learns all sorts of things along the way. Travel opens eyes, knocks down barriers, changes perspectives, and at the end of the day, brings people closer together. While you’re out there, doing all that traveling, something changes and you might just become a bit more adventurous, outgoing, and perceptive: as you opt to try something new, talk with a stranger, or notice something you’d never have stopped for before. Rather than just being an act – something you do when you have the time, Travel is a way of living and seeing the world. So whether at home or abroad, don’t stop and instead…#keeptraveling

About Me: I’m Paul, a 28 year old writer and avid traveler. I can’t get enough of the rush of being somewhere completely foreign and unknown – the excitement you get walking down an unfamiliar side street in an unfamiliar city. I love it and I’m looking for a lot more. So far I’ve learned to party till sunrise in Argentina, hike the jungles of Costa Rica, eat anything and everything in Germany, and soak up the sun in southern Spain.

I’ve scribbled for local newspapers, CheapinMadrid.com, and travel websites, but this year I was awarded as a Gogobot Pro 2016, next up, look out Lonely Planet I’m coming for you!

I will be adding a portfolio (coming soon!) but for now contact me at Takeyathere@gmail.com

Right now? I’m busy planning my next trip and considering becoming a photographer (now I just need to get a camera). Currently calling Oakland, CA home.

  1. Sounds like a good plan! I’m kinda envious since I didn’t start traveling as early as you. Enjoy all the planning…almost as good as the trip itself I think. Best wishes
