Travellers come in many shapes and sizes. They travel with purpose, or roam aimlessly, instigate change or passively pass through, become consumed by wanderlust, drop off the grid, get lost, and find their way back home. There are as many different types of wandering souls as there are places to go, but today – inspired by Mark Joseph Deutsch’s beautiful illustrations – we would like to celebrate one particular type: the traveller who does good.
These helpful people always seem to appear no matter where you go, and have somehow managed to disperse themselves across the planet to even the most remote and inhospitable places. The illustrated list below highlights (while embracing stereotypes) just a handful, and we are sure you will recognise aspects of yourself or a fellow traveller amongst them.
