Hello there, I’m Chris Allbritton, a former conflict reporter, having covered wars in Iraq, Lebanon and Pakistan over the last decade for a variety of publications, including Time Magazine, Reuters and the San Francisco Chronicle. in 2002, I started back-to-iraq.com, which gained some fame/notoriety back in the early days of the Iraq war. But after too many stories about the worst in humanity, I’ve decided to chuck it and start traveling and writing for myself, trying to find some of what is best in the world.
The goal is to circumnavigate the globe using only surface transportation, be it car, rickshaw, donkey-cart, kayak, whatever. Others have done it, and it seems like it can be done again. This is the story of that journey. Wanna come along and see how it ends?
