501 Places is a collection of travel articles, personal opinions, rants and the occasional feeble attempt at being funny. The content follows no particular logic and the site is updated when I think of something to write and have the time to do it.
For some reason 501 Places was recently listed in The Times list of 50 Travel Websites You Can’t Live Without – a dubious accolade but very nice to be mentioned.
I have deliberately kept it as a non-commercial site (this post might help explain my motives). The travel I describe on 501 Places site has been self-funded and independently arranged unless explicitly stated otherwise.
