Hi, I’m Nate Robert, founder of YOMADIC.
On July 30th, 2012, I began permanently exploring the planet. I’m addicted to adventure, documenting the unknown, and inspiring travel. By early 2014, my mission took a huge step forward, with the creation of Yomadic tours. Our adventures are designed for people who love the spirit of independent travel and the camaraderie of a small group of travelling friends, but really wouldn’t enjoy a typical “corporate” group tour. Specialising in lesser-known places like Iran and Ukraine, we use on-the-ground local knowledge to make the most of these “once in a lifetime” destinations.
In between overseeing the growing (but purposefully limited) Yomadic tour-roster, I continue to write about my own ongoing journeys. Photos and stories from post-Soviet countries that don’t exist, twenty-eight-nation road-trips in 350-Euro French hatch-backs, architecture, culture, and tales from spending far too many days in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone every winter.
From a humble website for fans of unsung locations, Yomadic has evolved into a tight-knit gang of highly experienced tour organisers and frequent-travellers based on three different continents. We’ve been mentioned in rag-tag publications like the Washington Post, USA Today, Lonely Planet, the BBC, the Sunday Times in two different countries, the largest news website in Australia, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post. Plus, a whole bunch of smaller websites that personally mean so much more.
From one traveller to another – thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day, wherever you are on this planet.
PS, if you enjoy tales of adventure and photography from unique destinations in far-flung locations, join the thousands of people who receive the occasional Yomadic dispatch from somewhere random. My email followers are my favourites, pop your address in and you’ll find out why…
