Dave's Travel Pages is a travel blog focusing on Greece and Bike Touring, with additional travel guides to countless interesting destinations around the world.
Dave's Travel Pages – Online since 2005!
It all started back in 2005 when I bought the domain name, and created what I called my Travelogue site.
The aim, was to document my journeys online as I travelled around the world. This way, other people could see what I was up to, and maybe give it a go themselves.
When I started it, I had no idea that Dave's Travel Pages would last as long as it has – or that I would eventually become a full time travel blogger. Yes folks, this is now my job. It's tough, but someone has to do it!
Travel Tips and Insights
In many ways, the aim of the blog (as we call it nowadays!) hasn't changed. On www.davestravelpages.com I share my travel experiences and create guides to make travel easier for other people.
There's two ways you can discover what's on this travel blog. Firstly, you can use the menu system. And secondly, you can use the search bar. You'll find both of these at the top of the page.
Whilst there are two core focuses – Greece and Bike Touring, there are travel blogs and guides to all parts of the world here. Make yourself a nice cup of tea, and dive in!
About Travel Dave
Dave was born in Northampton in the UK.
His first big travel adventure involved buying a car in Australia, and driving around the country for a year. As you can see from the photo below, it was quite a few years ago, as there seems to be some hair on display!
During 25 years of self-funded travel since then, he's backpacked through South America, sailed across the Mediterranean, and cycled over 40,000 kms around the world. Check out his bike tours here: Bikepacking Blogs
These days, Dave spends six months a year in Greece, and the other six months on bike tours and travel adventures. He's the blogger behind Dave's Travel Pages, creating travel guides aimed at making your life easier.

Dave's Travel Pages Itineraries
I've been writing articles and blog posts since 2005 in the hope to inspire others to start their own journey and travels around the world. At the last count, there were over 1500 different articles, guides, and itineraries!
I write blog posts designed to cover popular destinations as well as to experience off the beaten path places. I've not added up all the different countries I've visited over the years, but it's probably nearing 100.

Regular Contributors to Dave's Travel Pages
Vanessa was born in Athens in Greece.
Her love affair with travel began in Athens itself, as she discovered the alternative side to the city as a student. Later, she moved to London to study and work for four years, where she became involved in the couchsurfing community.
Her travels have included extended journeys through Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia, but it's Greece she enjoys travelling in the most. She also enjoys showing people around both Athens and Greece, and since 2013 she's been running the ‘Real Greek Experiences' walking tours, helping visitors discover a hidden, authentic side of Athens.
In 2018, Vanessa started contributing Greece travel guides to Dave’s Travel Pages, aiming to help travelers find their way around her city, Athens and her homeland. Find out more about Greek Culture and Insights at her own travel blog: Real Greek Experiences
