He was reputedly the first person to walk the length of Mongolia alone and now Ash Dykes, is traversing the huge island of Madagascar. There are sure to be many mountains, savannahs, rivers and jungles along the way.

His original bicycle adventure took him through Sudan, Iran, Yemen, Syria, the Arctic, Ethiopia, Armenia and Mongolia. So if you’re thinking of taking on an adventure or cycle tour of some sort, or you’re planning a big trip and are looking for a voice of experience to help out, Tom and his website are a great place to start.

In late 2015 he began walking the Masar with fellow Adventurer Leon McCarron but having fractured his footm they have been delayed. They are still walking!

  • Adventure Travel Blogger from Dublin, Ireland.

    My name is Derek Cullen. In late 2013 after the loss of both parents and a realization that my life was out of control, I began riding a bicycle solo across Africa. It was here that I discovered a passion for the outdoors, travel writing and the general unexpected nature of life.

    Except after spending so much time moving in a journey of constant uncertainty, it was incredibly difficult adapting back to my old lifestyle and the routine it brought. So I decided there just had to be a way of somehow turning my passion, into something I did for a living and the only way I knew to go about it, was by taking back to this uncertain nature of life on the road.I am now a travel writer and earn an online income from writing content for travel or adventure related websites.

    I genuinely believe in the importance of following your passion and so while I often refer to myself with the silly title of an “Irish Adventurer”, this Blog is not just about the wilderness trips I take but rather to inspire others toward searching out their passion in life and doing it, whatever the cost.
