Under the Spotlight: Olly Gaspar's Six Years of Non-stop Adventure Travel

When it comes to the legends of adventure travel, few names resonate as profoundly as Olly Gaspar. With six years of non-stop exploration under his belt, Olly has cemented his place as a travel expert and an inspiration to wanderlust-driven souls worldwide. His blog, "We Seek Travel," is a testament to his relentlessly adventurous spirit and passion for experiencing the world, boasting a vast audience of like-minded travellers who eagerly follow his journey and rely on his travel guides and photos to inspire their journeys.

Meet Olly: An Adventurer with Plenty to Write Home About 

Olly Gaspar is a travel blogger, photographer, and adventurer who has spent the past six years seeing as much of the world as possible. Born with an innate curiosity and a desire to explore the uncharted, Olly's journey as a “Digital Nomad” is fuelled by his relentless pursuit of raw travel experiences. 

In 2018, he packed up his conventional life in Australia and set out on a quest to see the world with his partner Haylea, seeking the most breathtaking destinations that aligned with their passion for raw travel. 

They didn’t have a lot of savings or a trust fund, but they made their dream of full-time travel happen anyway. They found online work wherever possible, teaching English and taking photos for tour companies and hotels to fund their travels.

From the lush jungles of Southeast Asia to the stunning coastal landscapes of Europe, together they have travelled to over 50 countries across 6 continents so far. 

Passionate about exploring the unknown, Olly has ventured to some of the world's most remarkable places. He has mapped out new hiking trails in Nepal, fought in Muay Thai in Thailand, sailed the east coast of Australia in a homebuilt sailboat, and trekked with Mountain Gorillas in Uganda. Last year, together with his friends Jessy and Ryan, he cycled 2,500 km through the Arctic Circle to raise over $10,000 for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

His adventures are not just about ticking places off a list but about immersing himself in the culture of each destination, connecting with the locals, and challenging himself to experience as much as possible. Whether he's hiking across rugged mountains, diving into the depths of the ocean, or navigating dense forests, Olly's experiences are as diverse as they are thrilling.


Building the Ultimate Travel Blog

In 2019, Olly launched his travel blog “We Seek Travel” after acting on his desire to share his incredible journeys and off-beat places he was visiting with the world, and as it turns out, a lot of people were ready to listen.

Thanks to Olly's captivating storytelling, practical travel advice, and first-hand expertise, what started as a modest blog soon grew into a comprehensive travel resource for millions of people. 

After spending so much time travelling the world, Olly had a unique perspective to offer that no travel blogger writing from the comfort of their home could replicate. This, combined with his genuine passion for adventure and travel photography, gave him everything he needed to build a travel blog that was engaging, useful, trustworthy, and insightful.

“We Seek Travel” was the resource that every like-minded adventure traveller had been searching for, and it quickly rose to the top.

Reaching an Audience of 5 Million People: The Journey Towards Success

Recently, Olly hit an incredible milestone, with “We Seek Travel” building an impressive readership of over 5 million people. Keen to experience the same type of travel Olly has enjoyed for the past six years, his large following finds exceptional value in his insightful and immersive writing style. 

Ultimately, this impressive milestone can be attributed to Olly’s genuine love of adventure and his unwavering commitment to providing his readers with valuable and real traveller-to-traveller insights. His articles go beyond mere travel guides, offering a deep dive into the essence of each destination, highlighting hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path adventures that most travellers overlook. 

Olly’s dedication to uncovering the extraordinary in every journey has garnered the loyal following he has today. With thousands of readers turning to “We Seek Travel” for inspiration and guidance each week, he has been able to build this once humble blog into something truly remarkable.
