ROAM is a creative and cultural digital travel magazine. We focus on cultures, creativity, off the beaten track and sustainable travel. We publish photo essays, stories, guides, interview and ideas from around the world. ROAM is contributor based, and we publish the stories and work of incredible creatives from all around the world. 

The Team

Co-founders of ROAM Magazine, Annapurna and Athena Mellor, are sisters from Yorkshire, England. Having spent part of their childhood living in the United Arab Emirates and Australia, Anna and Athena developed an appreciation for and interest in culture and travel from a young age. Both sisters later became passionate about words and photographs, about being open and honest and expressing oneself in a creative way.


Annapurna Mellor is a photographer, writer and co-founder of ROAM Magazine. She fell in love with Asia shortly after graduating and has since spent extensive periods travelling and photographing in India, Nepal, Myanmar and many more. She feels travel is about the people and stories you come across on the way and bases her adventures around the cultures she finds fascinating. Outside of ROAM, her work can be found in National Geographic Traveller Magazine, Lonely Planet Guide Books, Suitcase and The Guardian. She is based in Manchester, UK.
