Ian took his first solo trip in 1997, hitchhiking across Canada. By 2000, he was boarding a plane for his first “Round The World” ticket. Ian studied Tourism & Travel at University and has dedicated his life to exploring the world and helping others do the same. A full-time expat since 2011, and a digital nomad since before that was a term. Travel and life have melded together, and there is no real differentiation between them for him anymore.

Ian is the founder of a travel experience company called Where Sidewalks End, which helps connect guests with ancient customs and ancestral traditions from different corners around the world. A slow traveler by nature, he might not hit 193, but will be travelling til the end.
