More facts. Less hype. Less fear mongering.

Hi. I’m Robert Vinet.

In 2008 I took early retirement after being with the same employer for 28 years. I was only 48 years old. I was motivated to retire so early as a colleague, who I saw every day, had become ill with terminal brain cancer. When he received his diagnosis, he was literally 2 months away from setting off on his own world adventures with his wife. I too had dreams I wanted to chase. And I was witnessing how fragile life can be. Some of my dreams involved adventure travel. One involved ridding my motorcycle from the east coast of Canada to Ushuaia, Argentina. So I did that. And while I was doing that Paul passed away. And then I rode back. That experience opened a new world to me and informed a lot of my currently held philosophies.

Adventure Trend is a personal project. As I plan my adventures, I am organizing the information online as a resource to use in my travels. I’m sharing that information as perhaps others might find it a bit useful as well.

With this site I hope to inspire at least some of you to have fun, affordable adventures that are culturally broadening. To live your own individual adventures, passions, lives, to try your best, to live by your principals, to reach for higher ideals, to be good and kind to others. We live in a big, wonderful world that is not nearly as scary as some would have you believe.

If you’d like to contribute, I am always happy to receive information from locals, regular travellers, and travel professional. Thank you in advance.

This site is geared towards the overland traveller, as that’s what I do. However I love all types of adventure and hope other types of explorers, adventures, backpackers, RVers, and independent travellers find it useful as well.

All the information on Adventure Trend is available for FREE.
