All About The Travel Tramp
I'm Richard, a professional travel writer and seasoned blogger from the United Kingdom, and I can't stop travelling off the beaten track.
I write travel blogs with a dash journalism and take photographs along the way.
I love going to countries that don't even exist and places that most tousits don't visit. I want to show you that there are new destinations still waiting to be discovered and old destinations that are still full of secrets.

Travel Writer. Travel Blogger. Travel Photographer.
I'm an adventure traveller with a love of strange and wonderful places. I'm more at home in the most remote islands of Southeast Asia or in unrecognised territories than I ever will be in Paris or London.
I'm a published travel writer and photographer, and this blog focuses on combining journalistic intent with beautiful imagery and compelling narratives to create a unique space to provide storytelling , inspiration and practical travel advice.
I aim to inspire people to travel out of their comfort zone and off the beaten track, to go where they fear to tread.
I believe that the world needs to be a lot more connected than it is, and from the mountains of Kyrgyzstan to the Breakaway Republic of Abkhazia, I won't stop travelling until I've seen as many countries as I can.
Richard Collett. My Story.
I live for travel. Quite literally. Over the years I've managed to make a successful career out of travelling the world, in some way or another.
I took my first long term trip when I was 19 in 2009, while at University I became the travel editor of the student magazine and started my first travel blog.
After graduating, I spent two years working as a travel agent, but all I really wanted, was to travel full time.
In 2015 I left my home in England behind to hit the road. I started this blog and began writing about my travels to obscure destinations around the world. I travelled across Europe, Turkey and much of the former Soviet Union before ending up in North Korea, where I promptly ran out of money and went to Western Australia to work on a strawberry farm and then in the Outback.
From then on, after leaving Australia, my passion for writing , reporting and photography has given me the opportunity to travel the world continuously, as I use my skills to not only produce this blog but to work as a freelance travel writer, covering places as diverse as Kyrgyzstan and the Philippines. And I'm not stopping anytime soon.
