Hi I’m James Werb and welcome to my blog on wilderness travel and outdoor life.

I’ve travelled to some amazing places and had some fantastic experiences. From dog sledding in the Alaskan wilderness to canoeing through the rugged and beautiful scenery of Finland and Canada, I relish places that are off the beaten track, wild and untamed.

I’m not an expert and in many ways feel that I’m just beginning my journey. Along the way I hope to inspire and help others spend time in nature and discover their piece of wilderness, whether overseas or closer to home.

I haven’t always been the outdoors type. In fact there was I time you wouldn’t drag me into a tent. It was my partner and a new found love of canoeing that encouraged me to get out more and venture into the wild.

I soon discovered that the places I enjoyed being most were often the most remote, unspoiled by modern civilization. I’ve since immersed myself in learning about the natural world and how to spend as much time in wild places as possible.

What to expect from my blog

If you want to learn about travelling to wild areas near or far then you’ve come to the right place. I will be sharing my journeys along with any helpful advice to get you planning your own trips. I’ll also be letting you know about any equipment and clothing that I’m using (good or bad) to help you make your own gear choices.

This site is for anyone who wants to spend time outdoors whatever your preferred method of travel. If you haven’t spent a night in a tent or you’re a seasoned outdoors person hopefully you’ll get something useful from this website. Please get involved and share your thoughts and insights to help each other.

Feel free to contact me if you’d like to ask me a question. I’d love to hear from you.
