WHO AM I?


I’m Dave Dean. For over a decade I unsuccessfully tried to balance a corporate career and a travel addiction, until one day enough was enough.

In 2011 I quit my job, sold everything I owned and set off to live, work and wander round the world, armed with a backpack, a good pair of boots, and no return ticket.

THIS IS MY STORY.
