Welcome to Rural Bounty

What's Your


We Love Travel

I’m Alex, full time traveller, part time adventurer.

After a 15 year career in the military i decided i needed a break, this break ended up lasting twenty years and is still continuing today. I spend all of my time travelling to new countries and writing about my experiences on my blog. 

I write about everything from my favorite destinations to how to stay safe when travelling.

I’m also a keen adventurer so you’ll often hear about how i have been helicopter skiing or deep sea diving.  

Ive visited over 100 countries and plan on reaching 200 in the next decade. If there is a lesson to be learned then watch me learn it so you don’t have to. 

I hope you find lots of useful information on my blog and if you’d like to get in touch, visit my contact page here.
