About me

I’m an ordinary guy from Yorkshire, England.  I first got the travel bug whilst working in Canada as part of a student work exchange scheme.  This gave me the opportunity to live in Vancouver for a few months, then travel around British Colombia and Alberta afterwards.

In my 20’s I was working in Bangkok and I wondered what it would be like to travel by land to Bangkok instead of flying, I was also interested in taking the trans-Siberian railway.  I finally got to make the trip from London to Bangkok by land. I enjoyed it so much that I planned 2 more land trips, Antarctica to Alaska and Nordkapp to Cape Town.

From these trips, and other short trips in-between, I gained a lot of travel experience, which lead me to the world of travel blogging.  In my blog I give tips and advice on how you can travel overland, whilst seeing the world and coming home with great photos and memories.

London to Bangkok by land

In my 20’s I was working in Bangkok and I wondered what it would be like to travel by land to Bangkok instead of flying, also I was interested in taking the trans-Siberian railway so this idea seemed perfect. After working in Bangkok for 5 years I finally got to make the trip from London to Bangkok by land. I enjoyed it so much that I planned 2 more land trips.

Antarctica to Alaska by land

This trip would start and end with a cruise, first Antarctica, then Alaska with a cruise in the middle to get from Colombia to Panama. I would travel up through eastern South America, then western United States.

Antarctica to Ushuaia via Cape Horn

North Cape to Cape Town by land

This would be the easiest and the most challenging trip. Travelling south from North Cape to Tarifa, Spain was some of the easiest and pleasant travelling I have ever done. But from Morocco south, though west Africa, was completely the opposite, old public transport, poor roads, warzones and visas would make the journey more interesting than the destination.
