The dictionary defines the word wanderlust as: a strong desire to travel.

Over the past 20 years, my travel journey has at times left me penniless, ill, exhausted and misunderstood, yet still I have a strong desire to travel.

I’m Iain, a 40+ traveller with over 108 countries under my belt. I believe travel is about meeting the locals, getting dirty, testing patience and actively seeking out true adventure. Travel is precious so I treat it as such.

Why do I travel? The pursuit of perfection – to see things too beautiful to put into words. Plus I like drinking foreign beer in amazing countries.

Why do I blog? Initially, I had dreams of making it big and being paid to travel.

These days, I'm more of a travel writer. I cover destinations typically off-the-beaten-track so people like you and I, have the information to get us where we need to go.

Come join my mischief and adventures exploring this beautiful planet.

Happy travelling folks.
