Fathom celebrates all the reasons why we pack our bags, get on a plane, hitch a ride, and explore beyond our backyards.
Fathom is the travel website reinvented — through inspiring stories, practical advice, and useful tools and products. Fathom is where world-curious travelers indulge their passion for travel — whether they're getting on a plane tomorrow or staying at their laptop.
We created this site for those who tour the world spontaneously and deliberately. Who combine business with pleasure and familiarity with curiosity. Who love new discoveries as well as old classics.
We focus on places we like, writers we trust, and stories that move us. Our ruling astrological signs lead us to provide practical advice, timeless tips, and plenty of additional resources to help travelers hit the ground running. We're committed to sharing this information the way we want all information: on the go, in the hand, and off the cuff.
Postcards are articles, stories, photo galleries, and videos categorized around a unifying "I Travel for the ..." theme: I Travel for the Food, I Travel for the Stuff, I Travel for the Thrill, I Travel for the Kids. We want your postcards, too.
- lists of special and essential hotels, restaurants, shops, and sites the reflect the full spectrum of a destination, mixing old favorites with new finds at varying price points;
- itineraries like It's My First Time, Here on Business, Best Day Ever, With the Kids;
- Cheat Sheets provide essential knowledge about money, transportation, tipping, holidays;
- Local Color links to blogs, news sites, literary excerpts, books, and movies.
Tools gathers links to resources that make travel easier. Think of this as a sewing kit in your hotel room: You may not need it, but you'll be glad it's there when you lose a button.
Shop is a curated collection of travel-related products. You can browse by destination (Paris, New Orleans), activity (beach, spa), and category (gadgets, novels). Just because you can't get to London doesn't mean London can't come to you.
Pavia Rosati and Jeralyn Gerba launched Fathom; Crystal Meers joined shortly thereafter. Avec did the design. We have great advisors, and we wouldn't be here without our amazing contributing writers and photographers.
FATHOM has been getting great press. The New York Times, PaidContent, Cool Hunting, DailyCandy, TrendCentral, Gadling. (Thank you. We're really flattered.)
We have big plans to cover the globe as fast as possible and we'll always be making FATHOM better. Like any good traveler, we don't want to gather any moss.
We'd love to know what you think. Drop us a line anytime at higuys [at] fathomaway [dot] com.
Get inspired. Plan your trip. Pack your bags.
