About this site

Just Go Exploring is an adventure travel blog.  

I created it to inspire you to get outside and see more of the beautiful planet that we call home.  

To take risks and visit new places.  To explore the world.

It’s a truly huge and amazing place, yet most people see very little of it.

I want to help you travel more, see more, feel more, and live more.  

Whether that’s a weekend spent an hour from where you live, or a multi-month adventure in far flung lands.  

It doesn’t matter.  

What does matter is that you never stop exploring!

Planning a trip can be a daunting task.  That’s why I work hard to make every single post on this blog as helpful, detailed, and informative as possible. 

Think of it as an ultimate guide to adventure.  Everything you need to start your journey.  

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical hints and tips, personal anecdotes, suggested itineraries, “how-to” guides, advice for staying safe, and much more.

Whether you’re a first-time traveller, or a seasoned pro, I hope you enjoy what you find here.

About me

about me just go exploring

I’m Alex Tiffany.  

I used to be a lawyer but, after several years of the grind, realised that the formal, conventional, corporate lifestyle really wasn’t for me. 

(You can read more about why I quit the legal profession and decided to be a travel blogger in my interview in Authority Magazine.)

I’m originally from the UK and spent most of my 20s living and working in London.  Now, I spend most of the year travelling and working remotely.

People describe me as:

  • Spontaneous
  • Nonconformist
  • An optimist
  • Idealist realist (?)
  • Strategist
  • Violinist

I love being outdoors in nature.  Hiking and camping are two of my favourite things.  

I can ski and surf (in each case, badly).

I’ve independently travelled to over 70 countries around the world.

I love exploring relatively unknown, off-the-beaten-track countries (read: Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Sudan, Somaliland, Georgia).  

However, I’m also a firm believer that you don’t need to travel half way across the globe to find adventure.

A week of wild camping in the remote parts of the Scottish Highlands, or the Pacific Northwest, can feel every bit as adventurous as exploring the Central Asian steppe, or the African savannah.  

It’s also a lot cheaper (depending on where you live)!

Adventure is everywhere.
