Back in 2014, the crazy kids at Young Pioneer Tours had the idea of starting a spin-off magazine called The Young Pioneer. We liked this name as we felt it fit the main brand (Young Pioneer Tours), and the whole ethos of being young – or at least young at heart – and a pioneer.
For us, being a pioneer has a lot of different meanings and connotations, but at its heart it means the kind of person who wants to go that extra mile to see, live, or even eat something out of the ordinary. Some might think us Pioneers are weird, but to us were just a little bit different!
Our original incarnation was The Young Pioneer, which can be viewed at www.theyoungpioneer.com had us enlist a number of different writers from different backgrounds, with us producing a monthly ‘magazine’. Things go as they go, and after a year or so of operation we stopped the project.
More followed, such as Travel Stars right up to our latest incarnation www.YPT.life, which is to all extents the extended blog of Young Pioneer Tours. But again we still felt that being so closely linked to YPT has us dealing with far too many constraints, and thus unable to lead our own unique path.
We’ve therefore decided to phoenix the old Young Pioneer Magazine at www.TheYoungPioneer.com, as a discrete but linked entity to Young Pioneer Tours, and delivering not just a monthly magazine, but a vibrant and dynamic website and social media adapted for the modern viewing age.
As with the previous incarnations, we will be looking for other intrepid writers and bloggers to help spread the Pioneer Spirit, and hope you will join us in the adventures!
The Young Pioneer Magazine is back and ready to rock!
