Welcome to The Blue Dot Perspective…

Hi, my name’s Aaron Millar. I’m an award-winning travel writer, photographer, presenter and journalist. The Blue Dot Perspective, for me, is a state of mind that’s connected to the natural world and immersed in the adventure of life. It’s about being an explorer and being open to new ideas and new ways of being. That’s what fuels my writing, and that’s what I’m hoping to share here. If you love adventure, writing, ideas and photography we’ll get on well.

If you’re in the publishing/travel industry please check out my portfolio for recent articles. I contribute regularly to The Times, The Guardian, National Geographic Traveller and many more national and international publications. 

Please follow me on Facebook and Twitter for regular posts.
