ABOUT THE WAYFARER
A wayfarer is a traveller. A person who goes freely to and fro. Someone who embarks on a journey. We are all wayfarers, pursuing our own journeys of discovery.
TheWayfarer.co is an online travel journal founded by British journalist Keyta Hawkins, showcasing a worldly array of travel articles that explore a range of different topics encompassed by the travel niche, including food, accommodation, travel tips and lifestyle.
As a whole, the The Wayfarer is a conglomerative effort; everyone who I have met during my travels has shaped this website in some way, by helping to inspire and inform articles to ultimately share with the world on this platform. I have been very lucky to have crossed paths with a lot of amazing people who have inspired me to undertake adventures that I otherwise wouldn’t have. This is perhaps The Wayfarer’s most fundamental aspect…to inspire new adventures!
About Keyta Hawkins
Hello! I’m Keyta Hawkins, a wanderlusting twenty-something from the UK. I grew up in Cornwall by the seaside with my Filipino mother and English father. I’m an international travel writer, accredited journalist and of course the creator of The Wayfarer. I welcome you to my website and invite you to join me. Let’s explore? Fellow Wayfarer.
Travel and adventure is a huge part of my identity. My parents came from opposite corners of the globe; my father from the hustle and bustle of London and my mother from tropical island in the heart of the Philippines. I was brought up on fascinating travel stories from my father who in his younger days, ditched the boring 9-5 to travel the world and sail across the Atlantic.
