This is just a short excerpt for the about page.

My name is Alex. I am a traveller, and this blog is my story. Well… it’s not so much my own story as it is a collection of tales about the places I discover and the people I meet.

I am 34 years old and, for as far back as I can remember, my life ambition has been to see and experience as much of the world as I possibly can.

That’s why, in June 2017, together with my wife, I quit my fast-paced London job and left my cosy home to spend a year exploring this weird and wonderful world we live in.

I now have just a rucksack of belongings, a rough route plan, a bunch of flights booked, five years’ worth of savings to blow on the adventure, and my wife Lisa to enjoy the experience with (read her blog here).

“It is a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don’t want to be most of us.” – Oberyn Martell
