I started Pology with the hope of sharing the exciting potential this world holds for everyone, regardless of their current station in life. It is my hope that our stories and pictures will inspire people to get out and see the world. In a time where representations of the world are fed to us through polarized lenses, traveling has become of supreme importance. Traveling can remind us that in any situation there are multiple and often conflicting truths. Traveling can humble us, and remind us of how little we know. Immersion in a new culture can force us to see a beauty in the world that all too easily gets lost in the routine of the mundane. On our pages you will find impassioned vignettes of cultural exploration. Too much of today's travel writing focuses on where to stay, eat and shop, but I'm convinced that there is a breed of traveler out there that knows getting lost and having the details unfold spontaneously is what leads to the stories that can be fondly retold for the rest of your life. I kindly ask your indulgence in hearing our stories.

The January issue of Pology magazine is online, this time with a couple good pieces on Tokyo and Atlantic City, plus a Chicago photo gallery exemplified above. The non-urban stuff is also pleasing as usual, particularly the Croatia gallery.
