Flights & Accommodation
From an early age, I always had a passion for adventure, travel and living on the edge.
In my free time, I’d find myself researching travel destinations ✈️, making travel itineraries and trying new extreme and adventure sports 🤿 that made me feel alive. I also spent hours staring in awe at Google world maps and learning about different countries all over the globe.
After taking a big leap in my early 20’s to quit my job and backpack around the world for a year, I knew my life would be changed forever.
Since then, I’ve been drawn to create on online hub for newbie travellers and adventurous souls to share everything I have learned over my years of travelling and to help people live more adventurously through travel.
Welcome to Adventure Travel Pro!
I look so forward to guiding and accompanying you on your journey.
