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

My passion project is 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 Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Through this work I’ve explored the Caucasus in depth, co-authoring Armenia: The Bradt Travel Guide, founding CyclingArmenia.com, and designing a trans-Armenia bikepacking route.

This blog is a diary of an unconventional life, and of my adventures and projects in the Caucasus and beyond. Follow along on TwitterInstagram or Medium, or subscribe to my very occasional, very interesting newsletter:

Oh – and I’m having a #FlightFree2020, for these reasons.
