Thanks for finding your way to Endless Tracks.
Endless Tracks has been created by Peter and Wendy Watkins who are travelling the world.
Endless Tracks is all about travelling close to the ground, meeting local people, eating local food and taking local transport. Endless Tracks seeks out the sights less seen and the places less known and we want to share these with you.
We have eclectic interests; photography, local culture, textiles, nature, mountains. We will be sharing posts about these and more as we trek and travel around.
We travel with a backpack and a camera each and delight in sitting and chatting with local people about their daily lives. Endless tracks will keep you up to date as we trek and travel our way around the world.

I had an epiphany moment a few years ago when I swapped my suitcase for a backpack. Since then I have not travelled on holidays with a suitcase and I have never looked back. This moment occurred after hauling a wheeled suitcase over the cobblestones of Europe for 6...read more
I'm sure there is! Your adventurer may just be hiding, just a little bit shy because it sounds scary to go beyond what you know but actually it is not at all. Adventure travel is about stepping outside your comfort zone. It is all about finding a way to see the place...read more
