Craft Breweries around the world Around the World

There’s something so enjoyable about having a beer at the end of a good hike or after a busy day of sightseeing. For me, sampling new beer has become as big a part of travelling as trying new foods. Food, beer and exploring all seem to sit happily hand in hand with each other. For this reason I felt it was only right that I compile a list of my favourite craft breweries from around the world.

It is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, a road network that travels along the coast roads of Western Ireland. I was so impressed with my visit there that I would recommend anyone travelling to Ireland to dedicate some time exploring the Beara Peninsula. View from our wild camp The Wild Camp…

In the summer of 2014 I embarked on a 105 day trip along the Pan American Highway from Anchorage, Alaska to Panama City, Panama. On this tour we covered 9 countries and a whole lot of miles. I was lucky enough to re-visit these places on future trips, but this was the only occasion where I covered the ground on one trip. This overland adventure took place in a converted American school bus who was called Betsy. In…

10 off the beaten path destinations

I feel like the term, off the beaten path gets thrown around quite a lot these days. With travel and information about where to travel being so easy these days, visiting truly off the beaten path destinations is getting harder and harder to do. For me getting off the beaten path often means going to the middle of nowhere. Or going to a place where few others dare to venture, along a route that is not easy to…
