World Hum is dedicated to publishing travel stories, videos and slideshows of the highest quality. Since World Hum’s inception in 2001, stories from the site have appeared in “The Best American Travel Writing” anthologies and Travelers’ Tales anthologies, and they have won Lowell Thomas Awards from the Society of American Travel Writers. We post several types of features:

Travel Stories are first-person travel narratives.

Speaker’s Corner essays feature rants or raves about any travel-related subject.

Travel Interviews are interviews with travelers, writers, artists—anyone with something interesting to say about travel.

Lists explore a wide range of travel-related topics.

Audio slideshows explore travel through photographs, sound and narration.
