Tom Allen

Anywhere & everywhere

I’m Tom, originally from England. I'm an adventurous traveller, filmmaker and writeron a mission to get more people making personal, meaningful journeys.

In 2012 I published my first book, Janapar, and released an award-winning film of the same name. Since then I've been at the helm of several other book and film projects, most recently Karun, the story of following Iran's longest river from source to sea.

As a blogger I've operated, the UK's most popular adventure cycling blog, since 2006. Its purpose is to inspire & empower others to hit the road. I also write broadly on adventurous and creative topics at

Get in touch if there's anything I can help you with – I'm always interested in hearing about new creative adventure projects!
