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 Reuters, TIME Magazine, the Boston Globe, New York, the New York Daily News, the San Francisco Chronicle, Slate, Newsweek, Men’s Journal, The Intercept and the Wall Street Journal. 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 decided to chuck it and start traveling and writing for myself, trying to find some of what is best in the world.

The goal was to circumnavigate the globe using only surface transportation, be it car, rickshaw, donkey-cart, kayak, whatever. This is the story of that journey.

Some of my published work includes:
