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.
