Anywhere We Roam

We are Mark and Paul, two travellers in pursuit of adventure.

We travel to destinations with a story to tell, seeking hidden gems, local specialities, off-the-beaten-track experiences, and jaw-dropping natural scenery. We’re drawn to the historical and political context that has shaped the lives of people and framed their collective culture.

Our goal is to build a community of independent travellers seeking to unlock richer travel experiences; helping the curious discover less-visited places in popular destinations, and rewarding adventures in more remote locations.

In doing so, we hope to make travel more sustainable, accessible, and a whole lot of fun.

All the places we cover including destination guides and itineraries.

After travelling more and more to escape our day jobs, we soon realised that seeing the world and experiencing new cultures was the pursuit, not the escape. Eventually, we abandoned our regular jobs to focus on our passion: seeing the world and making it easier for others to do so as well.

Anywhere We Roam was born out of our desire to share our experiences around the globe. To make popular destinations more rewarding and off-the-beaten-track places more accessible. To give people the confidence to travel, the information to make it easy and the inspiration to make it happen.

We love storytelling, both written and visual. We can’t say no to a good hike, a decent coffee, a craft beer, superb scenery or a well-used map. We love historical cities, a wild swim, the budget telecast and cultures other than our own.


George Bernard Shaw said, “I dislike feeling at home when I’m abroad” and we completely agree. For us, travel is about immersing ourselves in a destination and seeing as much as possible; eating local food, trying out local bars and learning a few phrases in the local language.

We’re curious and adventurous. We’ll take off on a road trip, plan long stunning walks and get off the beaten track, but we like a hot shower at the end of the day.

Understanding the political landscape that has shaped a culture along with their historical heritage is critical to feeling like we’ve really travelled somewhere. Learning about other people’s lives teaches us valuable lessons about our own, making us grateful for having one of the best jobs in travel.

We travel as sustainably as possible, aiming to leave a light footprint on the ground, and a smile on the faces of people we meet.


Everything on our blog is our personal experience. We try a lot of things, do a lot of research, make a lot of mistakes, and see some duds.

The purpose of this is to provide carefully curated content. No endless lists or places lacking imagination. All our travel recommendations are tried and tested; experiences we are passionate about.

We bring these experiences to life through our storytelling; finessed into carefully crafted guides supported by beautiful photography.

On the blog and on our social media, we reach beyond traditional guides to provide thoughtful, well-researched evergreen content that helps our readers travel better, more responsibly, and in greater depth while having a whole lot of fun.
