I’m a storyteller at heart.
When I first launched Never Ending Footsteps, way back in 2010, all I wanted to do was share funny tales from my adventures. I wrote long-form narratives about my experiences; multi-thousand-word essays on what it’s like to travel forever. I documented my evolution into the world’s unluckiest traveller, shared how travel had changed my life, and revealed the realities of life as a full-time travel blogger.
Somewhere along the way, however, my priorities changed.
As I grew older, I began to share fewer personal narratives online, for many reasons. A desire for a greater level of privacy on an increasingly cruel internet. The realisation that this travel blog is my business and you can’t make (much) money from stories. And a dream of helping people to travel more: of providing helpful guides to my favourite cities; of sharing how to make the most of your vacation time; of revealing the exact travel costs of every country in the world.
But I’m still a storyteller at heart.
As my travel blog has begun to move away from sharing my personal life and more towards helping my fellow travellers, I’ve noticed Never Ending Footsteps has become increasingly difficult to navigate. In an effort to make everything a hell of a lot easier, I’ve created this page: my travel stories page.
Here, you’ll find a list of every single narrative, personal essay, and travelogue I’ve shared from my decade of travel around the world. There’ll be no helpful resources, no travel guides, and no budget breakdowns: just funny mishaps, tons of introspection, and a whole dose of honesty.
Here’s every story on Never Ending Footsteps, from 2011 onwards (in other words, the writing gets a lot better towards the end):
