Nature is my passion and off-the-beaten paths, hidden routes and the most desolate parts of the earth are my natural habitat. I thrive in rugged landscapes and naturally wild conditions, from gentle leisure walks through lush rainforests, to engaging trekking journeys along rugged terrains and vigorous climbs to steep heights and challenging peaks, I've done it all and plan on continuing to grow my ever-expanding list of nature adventure.

Follow my regular blog posts to join me in my latest quests and keep up with my exciting voyages to some of the planet's most naturally beautiful corners. Find out about some of the world's best trekking and hiking destinations, tried and tested by my own personal experience during my extensive travels around the globe.

From astounding natural reserves to little-known trails and spectacular natural sights, often blended with a bit of added culture, I blog about the most thrilling and exciting adventures to be had around the world.

This is about appreciating the amazing work that Mother Nature did herself, with no help from us humans who are too quick to damage and dismiss her truly miraculous work. Join me in my adventurous pursuits and my daredevil exploits and take the time to get to know and appreciate nature from a personal perspective.
