I’m Tom, a professional explorer, author and long-time traveller. Originally from England, I’m now based in Armenia in the South Caucasus.

Since 2015, my big project has been the Transcaucasian Trail, a frankly ludicrous idea to build a 3,000km-long hiking trail that will follow the Greater and Lesser Caucasus mountains through Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan.

Through this work I’ve explored the Caucasus in depth, co-authoring Armenia: The Bradt Travel Guide, founding CyclingArmenia.com, and designing Armenia’s first national hiking trail. (You can hire me as a travel consultant or guide.)

My blog is a diary of this unconventional life, and of my adventures and projects in the Caucasus and beyond. This founding statement explains why I do what I do.
