Life and times of The Mad Traveller!

Well… What can i say?

The Mad Traveller has been something that i’ve been working on for a very long time. It’s gone through some interesting changes along the way and it finally is what it is today… my personal blog… which was the original idea back in 2005 before I went overseas for the first time! Originally it was to be called Shaun’s Travels… which never really happened in time for my travel. While in the USA a friend of mine and I were sitting around a camp fire in the ‘not-most-sobre-of-states’ with a crowd of people we’d never met before and, after a long hard day of running a camp for them, we came up with the name ‘The Mad Traveller’, which has kinda stuck since then I really like the name alot.

Anywho… From there it was decided that it should be a community site for like-minded travellers who like to do things a little differently (hence the name). I still like that idea and definately plan to build that aspect into this site because i’m fanatical about travelling, but until that’s ready to go it’s going to be my personal blog.

Relating to everything from Adventure to Travel to Spirituality (and some of my interests thrown in to boot), i’d like people to come here for information on these most important aspects of life (The Spirituality and Adventure). They really are fundamentals of life and one certainly can’t live without them at all.

As time goes by (and as time allows) I’d like to add a forum to the site. This will enable communication between like-minded people who love life and travel and all the rest. From there, who knows where it’ll go. Obviously, if you feel there’s something i’m missing then please feel free to let me know about it (I do have a contact page).

Happy adventures!


  1. Hi Shaun.
    The contact page doesnt seem to be working – is there an alternative way for one to get send a message?
