Hi, I’m Tom, and I am an explorer and adventurer.
Welcome to my page!
Among other things, I have crossed the Eurasian Continent from Tokyo to Moscow using any means except air travel, which involved travelling the Trans-Siberian and Trans-Mongolian railways, and have also travelled the lengths of Vietnam and Australia.
I have walked the shores of Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater lake in the World; driven a camper-van around Iceland; run a marathon near the equator in Uganda; and walked the full 40km circular route of Tokyo’s Yamanote train line – in both directions.
Having long been fascinated by explorers throughout history, I believe that travel should always involve learning from this rich and varied planet, to avoid reducing our appreciation of ‘adventure’ to simple thrill-seeking. True exploration relies on education and engaging with all the people and places we encounter.
So, this collection of blogs, vlogs, and photographs are my life’s journal. Hopefully they will inspire the “Indiana Jones” inside of you; in the very least I hope you have a good read!
