Hi, I’m Dave Briggs, and welcome to my travel blog Daves Travel Pages. Back in 1997, I decided that the 9-5 life wasn’t for me, and I headed out on my first around the world trip.
Since then, I have driven a car around Australia, ridden trains through India, cycled around New Zealand, backpacked through Asia, taken chicken buses through Central America, rode a horse around Easter Island, cycled from England to Cape town, been a nightclub bouncer in Sweden, and spent 18 months bicycle touring from Alaska to Argentina. Did I forget anything? Yes! That’s why I keep this adventure travel blog – It’s as much to remind me what I have done, as it is to inspire you to go out and do stuff!
Who am I? I’m nobody special. I work, I save, I travel. That’s it really. Over the years, I have endured some not great jobs, in order to have some of the most meaningful adventures. Recently though, I have developed my freelance writing and travel blog to the extent that I can now support my travels.
Currently based in Athens, I am blogging about Greece whilst planning the next adventure. Bicycle touring around the world? A 4WD trip through Africa? Sign up to the monthly newsletter below, and I will keep you posted.
