Interested in travel and geography? Here at the tripgoeson we specialise in off the beaten path destinations. Ever wondered what it’s like to walk the streets of Pyongyang, North Korea at Christmas or spend a night in the Chernobyl exclusion zone?

You can find all this and much more on my Blog page. Countries and places featured include: Albania, Azerbaijan, China, Estonia, Finland, Hong Kong, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, North Korea, Romania, South Korea, Thailand, Tibet, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

As well as interesting travel stories, you can find out how to travel to some incredible places such as the Silk Road. Here at thetripgoeson.com we prefer “slow travel” so you will find how to journey between countries by land and sea rather than by flight.
