About Me


Dave specializes in remote travel, with an interest in vanishing cultures, festivals, and wild natural environments, as well as covering luxury properties, dining, and drinking. When not at home chasing down the latest craft beers, Stamboulis can be found travelling around the globe, where his quest for off the beaten path stories, photographs, and adventures have taken him to spots such as Ethiopia, Patagonia, Zanskar, Kashmir, Iceland, Madagascar, and other far-flung locations often reached on foot or via bicycle.
