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.

“Ones destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things” – Henry Miller

I don’t believe that travel and adventure is the preserve of those with time and money. Nor is it something that you have to venture far to experience. Sometimes so much emphasis is put on the desire to discover what is on the other side of the globe that we can can forget to even experience what is on our own front doorstep. It’s everywhere to be sought, no matter where you are are how you got there. That’s what I think makes this world of ours truly wonderful. There’s always something to be discovered.
