Travis Wardell

Tourism has fueled Travis’ desire to discover the world ever since graduating from South Carolina’s College of Charleston in 2007. From managing a hostel in Queenstown, New Zealand, to leading multi-day treks in the Andes of Bolivia, to guiding tours in Paris, each adventure helped him find his way to Backroads in 2012. He now leads trips on the East Coast each spring and fall, in Europe during the summer and in Hawaii for the winter. Food, friends and mountains are usually the deciding factors in where he’d like to go next, but when Travis isn’t traveling, all he needs is a good book and a cozy chair.
