Story
Tagline
Experiencing the best the world has to offer, one adventure at a time and helping others do the same.
Introduction
I run the popular travel site LandLopers. I've always wanted to see the world, but only started blogging three years ago to help friends plan their trips. At the time I was working at a job I hated and one that was actually killing me both physically and mentally. I've always loved to travel, but as I traveled more often and shared my stories I realized that my true passion in life is doing what I do now - traveling and writing about it.

Today hundreds of thousands of people visit LandLopers for travel inspiration as well as practical tips on how to better see the world and have more fun along the way.

I cover all destinations, but especially love Europe, Africa and Australasia. My travel photos are also a big part of the experience for me and I share a new one every day.

So far I have visited more than 60 countries and all 7 continents and I'm no where close to slowing down.
Bragging rights
I own the cutest Siberian Huskies in the world.
