About Nick

On a quad in Costa Rica

Nick is the photographer – check out photos from the journey here.

Nick is a more handsome and younger version of his hero Ray Mears. Nick makes his own knives. In fact he makes lots of things and pretty much built our house.

He is fascinated by wildlife and remarkably knowledgable about every sort of creature. When he grows up, he would like to be Dr Doolittle, but until then Nick will be travelling around the world documenting our journey with his camera. You can also follow and contact him here.

    I’m not sure the word hero is quite accurate, although I certainly enjoy watching Ray Mears document peoples cultures and bushcraft around the world. I have also been enthralled by Bruce Parry and his travels. Both have inspired me and personally I can’t wait to get going, and who better to go with than Gaia, my partner. We have travelled together to some amazing places already, notably Madagascar, where I took the picture at the top of the page. With her skills as a writer and scientific knowledge and my love of photography, I hope we can put together an engaging package. Nick

    Dear Mat and Annie

    Its great to hear from you, we are now in a remote village called Nangi which is 6 hours climb from the valley and another 4 hours walk. The people are lovely and frriendly.
    We didnt see mount everest as its on the other side of the country.
    The trees are not any bigger than normal, but the mountains are, its beautiful here.
    We haven’t seen any reptiles as yet, its winter here so they are all hiding as its not warm enough
    Love Uncle Nick

    Dear Gaia and Nick, I feel as if you are in another world so far from my lifestyle and I am really envious now knowing there is no chance of ever being able to do anything like it. So I will keep watching this space and following your travels. Thank you both. The writing is so descriptive and photographs so good.

    Have a great trip and keep writing.

    Much love Ruth xxxxx
