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

My big 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. Hire me to get direct access to this expertise.

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

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