Welcome to taste2travel!

Hi! My name is Darren McLean, the owner of taste2travel.

I’ve been travelling the world for 33 years and, 208 countries and territories, and – seven continents later, I’m still on the road.

This website offers travel guides to an array of interesting destinations, along with photo galleries, travel quizzes and feature articles.

The purpose of taste2travel is to pique one’s curiosity and inspire wanderlust!

I hope you enjoy my content!

A brief back story!

Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with the idea of travel. I started planning my first overseas trip at the age of 19 and set sail from Australia soon after my 20th birthday. Thirty-three years later and I’m still on the road

In 2016, I decided to document and share my journeys, and photography, with a wider audience and so, taste2travel.com was born.

My aim is to create useful, usable travel guides/ reports on destinations I have visited. My reports are very comprehensive and detailed as I believe more information is better than less. They are best suited to those planning a journey to a particular destination.

Many of the destinations featured on my website are far off the regular beaten tourist trail. Often, these countries are hidden gems which remain undiscovered, mostly because they are remote and difficult to reach.

I enjoy exploring and showcasing these ‘off-the-radar’ destinations, which will, hopefully, inspire others to plan their own adventure to a far-flung corner of the planet.

I’m also a fan of travel trivia and, if you are too, you’ll find plenty of travel quizzes on the site.

While I’m not the keenest of writers, I love photography and, unless otherwise stated, all photos on the site are mine. If I use a photo from another source, I will quote the source.

If you’re curious to know which shade of blue I use on my website, it’s Yves Klein Blue (hex colour code #002fa7), my favourite shade of blue.

If you have any questions or queries, please contact me via the contact page.

I hope you enjoy my website.

Safe travels!
