Exploring the Beara Peninsula – A wild experience

The Beara Peninsula is the hidden gem of south-west Ireland. With big competition from the Ring of Kerry and Dingle, this peninsula tends to get overlooked. It is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, a road network that travels along the coast roads of Western Ireland. We were so impressed with our 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…

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda

This has to be one of the best experiences of my life. I can’t give it any higher praise than that. Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park now comes with hefty price tag, but if you’re willing to part with your hard earned cash you won’t be disappointed. Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda Volcanoes National Park is located in North Western Rwanda. This protected area is home to 10 groups of mountain gorillas, all of varying sizes. Each gorilla…

Alaska to Panama – A Road Trip to Remember

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…

Top 10 Turkey Destinations

Visitor numbers to Turkey have dropped a lot of the last few years and I think it is such a shame. As a tourist destination, Turkey has a lot to offer with a rich and diverse history, incredible scenery and amazing food. I first travelled through Turkey in 2015 as part of a Silk Road tour and I loved it so much I’ve been back at least once every year since. With a sliding Lira, Turkey is also…

Helvellyn – The Best Lake District Hike

This year I’ve done some great hikes in far reaching places. In japan we hiked to the top of a volcano so we could snowboard back down and in Ethiopia we hiked in the Simien mountains with Gelada monkeys. However, the best hike of the year so far has to be a hike that was a lot closer to home. Just a (relatively) short drive up the road, Helvellyn has to be the best Lake District Hike. Ullswater…

A photo journey of America’s National Parks

I recently read an article by a guy who had plotted the most optimal route for a road trip to visit all of the USA's lower 48 National Parks. I thought it was an intriguing proposition. I've done a quite a few road trips around the US trying to visit them all, but I've only managed to see half. The route creator claims you could do this road trip in 2 months if you put your foot down,…

Grand Canyon Rim to Rim Hike

Have you ever thought about a Grand Canyon rim to rim hike? I’ll admit that for my first visit to the Grand Canyon that thought hadn’t crossed my mind. For my first visit I wanted to see the Grand Canyon in all it’s glory and I figured the best view was from the air. So in 2012, during my first visit to the Grand Canyon National Park I splashed the cash and did a helicopter ride. It was…
