Micro Bio: In 2013, Derek Cullen spent one year riding a bicycle through Africa, a journey of 8,000 miles through 11 countries. Following this adventure, he became fascinated with “slow travel” and the perspective that comes with exploring the world in such an old fashioned way. More recently, Derek has hiked the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland and trekked 2,652 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail.
Although best known for these long distance adventures, Derek is also passionate about storytelling and documenting his journeys. In the very first year, his Youtube channel was chosen as a finalist for “Best Vlog” at the Irish Blog Awards.
