Hearty Welcomes & Salutations! Originally an action-packed travel blog from a globe-trotting Scotsman, An Ache for the Distance has, over the years, slowed down (I post less often), mellowed out (my dogs and kid have found their way on here) and become more of an expat blog (I German things up). Take a look around, leave a comment and share the love if you like something.

Make a difference in the places you travel

When you travel to far out places you often receive generous and gracious hospitality from local people, even when they don't have much themselves.

We believe, we have a moral obligation to give something back to the people who live in the communities that we visit. It is simply the right thing to do to help people who struggle with basic needs for food, water, housing, health and safety.

How? We support WorldNomads.com Footprints program to fund local community projects to end poverty.


You can help too!
