Off the Beaten Track

9 Articles in this blog

Undiscovered routes, un-trodden paths, little-seen natural marvels, rarely explored singular treasures...they all call out to me. As a lover of nature and everything natural, I always intend to go off the beaten path wherever I go and I'm always rewarded with impressive sights and rare experiences to blog about.

This is why, if you follow my posts, you can expect to find out about everything there is to do outside your main resort or hotel. Away from tourist hotspots and landmark attractions lies a little-discovered world of wonder that I always take the time to discover.

From volcano-boarding in Nicaragua to hanging off one of China's most dangerous cliffs, my travels guarantee to awaken your thirst for adrenalin-pumping experiences and heart-warming discoveries.
