A Little Bit About Mike
I’m a long term traveller, ranging from hitch hiking around Europe to overlanding around Africa. I never tire of that exciting feeling of arriving in a new place, meeting new people and enjoying new experiences. As well as a decades of travel experience I have also worked as a photographer and writer. I’m currently working as the brand and marketing manager for Imaginative Traveller and Dragoman, which means I get to spend my days writing and talking about travel.
