Profile

I am Derek Dellinger, a writer and beer brewer who suddenly found himself in the world of travel writing. My friends have tagged me as daring and adventurous because I delight in trying new things.

When I'm not working, I'm trying out new beer recipes at home or start travel. I enjoy brewing; it is one of the ways I show my adventurous side, which many people point out to me regularly.

My interest in traveling must have started when I took my food odyssey in the year 2014 to taste different kinds of fermented foods around the world. I visited many countries of the world and saw many beautiful places. Some years later, I felt the need to go on a hike. I packed my things into my car and took a four-month daytime hiking journey. Since then, I have been finding time to take trips, discover new places, and tell people about what I find out.

Professional Practice, Experience, and Interest

I am a writer by profession. I never actually had any educational background in tourism or travel, so I had no training or prior knowledge before starting. Before I took my first hike, however, I did thorough research and then went ahead to visit all these different places. For me, it was just about adventure. After I published my first book on hiking, I started getting invitations to write about traveling. I also have a book on beer fermentation. Meanwhile, my book on hiking was followed by other hiking books written to guide people who would want to take similar journeys.

Conclusion

My research involves traveling. I want to make it easy for people to try out new traveling ideas. I believe people should be able to dare new travel adventures. The fact no one has done it doesn't mean it can't be done.

My goal is simple. I just want to keep exploring new things and new places. That's what I want to do. I believe life should be adventurous. We only get to live once, and we should make the most of it.
