About the Author

From bicycle touring to backpacking, watercolour painting to clay modelling, the exploration journal captures my journey through many different interests and travel adventures.

I love to find those out of the way places that whisk you away from the concerns of everyday life. Whether this is by wading through an overgrown river or trying new paint techniques is up to you!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Way back in 2013 I decided to create a list of places I’d like to go and things I would like to see. These range from finding a Bunya pine cone to cyling the ring road of Iceland. An ever expanding list that isn’t getting ticked off as fast as I would like!
