“Travel is for learning, for fun, for escape, for personal quests, for challenge, for exploration, for opening the imagination to other lives and languages.”

(Frances Mayes, Introduction to The Best American Travel Writing 2002. Houghton, 2002)




I’m Julie A Dexter, 

 I’ve always been interested in travel and writing.  As a child I would document day trips taken with my grandmother – somewhere there lurks a torn page with my seven year old writing on it.

 this blog was made to share

  • writing done whilst traveling and walking. 
  • Thoughts during traveling
  • Travel narrative
  • It aims to offer the reader some feeling about a place , or a vicarious  journey experience from the comfort of your chair, wherever you may be sitting.


Written with a curious eye, a cocked ear, nostrils dilated, empathy blazing, interest aroused.

  • Other writing
  • Fictional stories have been printed in Creative Week and  Tresco Times, an Isles of Scilly Newspaper.

  2. Thanks so much for following Oh, the Places We See. What a joy it was to read your About page — you have a wonderful outlook on life, and you’re practicing what you love doing: traveling and writing. Best wishes for many future opportunities to do both. And thanks for joining us on our journeys.
