Overview
Exploring the unknown is a personal account of a South African’s backpacking journey of self-discovery and adventure off the beaten trail.

Exploring the unknown is a personal account of a South African’s backpacking journey of self-discovery and adventure off the beaten trail. In 1990, leaving behind a life of white privilege and a career, the author travelled to 35 countries in five years on a shoestring budget as the apartheid regime collapsed with uncertainty.

A time of carefree travel, inbred survival instinct and always proudly South African he became set on seeing and experiencing as many cultures and places using maps, travel books and various modes of transport.

An exciting and funny account with history and politics enmeshed throughout the story, spanning three continents–the author using temporary bases in and around London to springboard his travels–United Kingdom, Ireland and Europe–East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Morocco and South East Asia–Thailand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Hong Kong and Cuba.
In 1996, he returned home before choosing a new life in Canada. In 2003, he travelled to Namibia and in 2005 embarked on a special trip to Mozambique.

Tim Ramsden

Tim Ramsden was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1965 and was educated at Treverton College, a boarding school in Mooi River, Natal before doing his mandatory term of two years National Service. He worked as a manager in retail before embarking on a five-year backpacking adventure through thirty-five countries.

He now lives in Newmarket, Canada and continues to work in retail as a manager. He still holds a keen interest for travel, adventure and the magic of Africa, hoping one day that the love and passion for the land of his birth will rub off on to his son.
