Back at the tailend of 2020, we got in touch with contacts from within Dreams Abroad and without. We wanted them to contribute to our #WednesdayWisdom initiative. The message was easy enough to decipher: here is an opening for you to provide some pointers about life, work — whatever you want to share with the world. We posted the videos on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter, and on YouTube too. In the travel-writing fraternity, Dreams Abroad editor Jim Murty is altogether better known as Bandanaman. He has the bandana on the brain as his VLOG demonstrates.
Jim is a travel nut. He loves to explore new destinations as well as return to old faves. Wherever Jim is in the world, you can be guaranteed he gets himself in the picture with his new pals. Jim enjoys meets and greets locals here, there, and everywhere.
An award-winning editor, he’s also a fantastic raconteur. Reading Jim’s travel articles is like being warmly regaled by him, pint in hand, in a pub. They always tell a story and the emphasis, like the focus of any successful trip, is on the journey rather than the destination.
Jim Murty’s TravelTravelTravel is a rollercoaster ride of a site. Buckle up for tales of nights spent in the same hotel as the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Mariah Carey. And if you have ever wondered why German trains always run on time, Jim’s as regular as clockwork with the answer.
Above all, there is an intensity to the bandana-wearing Jim’s writing. His articles continue to burn bright long after you have finished reading them. These are veritable works of art that stand the test of time with his website a virtual gallery for whenever you want to view them.
