I’m Tom, a professional explorer, trail prospector and travel writer. Originally from England, I’m now based in the South Caucasus.

My long-term passion project is the Transcaucasian Trail, a 3,000km-long hiking route across Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan. So far I’ve designed, mapped, documented and launched one 861km-long thru-hiking trail across Armenia and am working on a second.

As well as that, I’m the co-author of Armenia: The Bradt Travel Guide, founder of CyclingArmenia.com, and I’ve blogged for the last 16 years about cycle touring and bikepacking at TomsBikeTrip.com.
