I SHARE MY ADVENTURES THROUGH STORIES, VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHY TO HELP INSPIRE OTHERS TO PLAN ADVENTURES OF THEIR OWN.

Journeys // Politics & Travelling On U.S. Passports

It was the morning after the presidential election in 2016. I was deep in the heart of Patagonia on one of the most adventure packed trips in some of the most remote places in the world. We were doing an overland border crossing from Argentina into Chile. The border...

Journeys // EcuadorNow

A lot influences where we decide to venture on upcoming holidays – landmarks, cuisine, history, personal challenges etc. But where do factors like political conflict, scandal and natural disasters fit in? If you are like most people, if there are a lot of the latter,...

Journeys // Itinerary

ITINERARY (ɅɪˈTɪN(Ə)(RƏ)RI,ɪ-/) NOUN A PLANNED ROUTE OR JOURNEY. “HIS ITINERARY INCLUDED A VISIT TO THE GALÁPAGOS ISLANDS”
 If you think asking your employer to take a sabbatical is tough, imagine the work ahead of you when they say yes. How in the world...

Journeys // Planning

Planning trips is a past-time of mine that helps me sate the travel bug. It is very much a part of the journey and - when well-done - can really make a difference in your overall experience. Read More...

Journeys // Sabbatical

I suppose the cat is out of the bag. My partner Rob and I have both had an extended amount of leave granted from work - allowing us to press the pause button on the day-to-day corporate grind and press the fast forward button on life that will take us on an adventure around the world.

Destinations // The West, USA

Best way to explore the USA? Top down in a Ford Mustang. Check out how we managed to drive over 2,000 miles in 2.5 weeks exploring USA's beautiful west coast.

Destinations // Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is a very special place with lots to see and do. Planning a trip? Be sure to check out these top places so you don't miss out.

Destinations // Wellington, New Zealand North Island

When planning our road trip through New Zealand one thing was made abundantly clear – a lot of traveler’s suggested spending more time on the country’s South Island. I’d say that a lot of this must do with the fact that people tend to travel quite far to get to...

Destinations // Ushuaia, Argentina

Our last stop on our Patagonian adventure was to the El fin del Mundo – quite literally the end of the world. Ushuaia, located on the Argentinian side of Tierra Del Fuego, gets this name because it is the southern-most city in the world. Technically speaking there are...

Destinations // Galapagos, Ecuador Part 1

Anyone who has studied natural history knows of the tale of Darwin arriving on HMS Beagle in the Galapagos in 1835. Setting off to explore the archipelago’s great volcanoes, he got a lot more than he bargained for. He navigated the islands, began collecting various...

Destinations // Patagonia Chile & Argentina

One of the best parts about venturing around the world is soaking up our world’s natural beauty. It is the reason why I enjoy trekking so much – you can get to more remote places on your two feet and really appreciate the allure first hand. While in South America we...

Destinations // El Calafate, Argentina

Keen to explore more of Patagonia, we hopped on a local bus and made our way across the Andes into Argentina for El Calafate. Most travellers opt to stay in El Calafate due to its proximity to some of Patagonia’s highlights such as Torres Del Paine National Park and...

Destinations // Marlborough, New Zealand South Island

I know what you are thinking. Nothing says adventure travel more than plunging your nose into a wine glass to sniff out the intricacies of the juice’s aroma. Some people choose to swing from vines, my version of adventure includes “exploring” the (grape) vines. This...

Destinations // Cotopaxi National Park Ecuador

Getting up close and personal to a Volcano is quite easy when you are in Ecuador. The Andes Mountain range runs directly through the country and has created what is known as the Avenue of Volcanoes. If this sounds like your idea of fun then be sure to visit Cotopaxi...

Destinations // Doubtful Sound, New Zealand South Island

At over 1.2 million hectares in size, Fiordland National Park is by far the largest national park in New Zealand. It’s beautiful, dramatic and the epitome of the great outdoors. There is so much to see and do in the park, that you could easily spend the entire length...

Connections // Jose Valdivieso

Multiple factors impact experiences while travelling. It’s no secret that our trip to the Galapagos Islands with G Adventures was phenomenal, but it was not just the animals or the exotic location that made this trip special. It was our...

Connections // Paul Riedstra

I got the opportunity to meet Paul Riedstra on a group trip through Patagonia (Destinations // Patagonia). Like me, Paul’s life has brought him all over the place. He currently lives in Haarlem, Netherlands and has lived in both Budapest and Surinam. Our very...

Connections // Carrie & Stevie

Being able to share your travel experiences with a loved one is great – especially if you are lucky enough to be with someone that shares the same passion for seeing the world. Exploring a corner of the world as a pair gives you a different perspective. What did you...

Connections // Prue Cunningham

I had the pleasure of meeting Prue as part of an organized group trip around the Galapagos Islands (Destinations // Galapagos). It’s funny how quickly you get to know others when crammed into a boat together for over a week. Prue shares a similar sense of adventure...
