About Andrew Revell

Travel has been in the spotlight of my life for the past eight years or so, ever since I took my first road trip to the Pyrenees in my clapped out old Ford. Since then, I’ve changed four wheels for two and have extensively traveled Eastern Europe on my trusty motorcycle. There have been many stops along the way, as I soon learnt that for me, to truly travel is to immerse myself in a new culture. So far I have lived, worked and volunteered in Poland, Ukraine, Georgia and now Romania.
