Who are we?

We are an online travel magazine for the independent and adventurous traveller. We aim to encourage sustainable and environmentally friendly travel, and promote community and local involvement whenever possible.

Michael Palmer

The original Gone Travelling site was created by Michael Palmer to keep his friends in the loop as he travelled the world, all pre-facebook (yes there was such time!).

His journey around the world took him through Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the beautiful islands of the South Pacific where he pursued his love of surfing, diving, exploring, getting lost and generally soaking up the beach vibes.

He has also crewed on ships around the world, is frequently on the slopes of the Alps and can often be spotted falling off a surfboard in the waters of Cornwall.

Oliver Lynch

Editor and chief contributor Oliver Lynch is an experienced traveller who has had the great fortune to have been raised spending a lot of time in India, France and North Africa.

In later life he took on extended jaunts to Thailand, Malaysia and Cambodia to work as a DJ and has spent time on safari in Africa, climbing mountains in South America and jumping out of planes in New Zealand. He is currently based somewhere in Europe, most likely Spain or the south of France.

You can check out his personal blog at http://olilynch.com.

He also edits our sister site: GlobalPlayboy.com
