Brandon Presser is a bona fide travel expert who has visited more than 100 countries, written more than 50 travel books, and has firmly accrued a lifetime's worth of experiences along the way. He earned his stripes as a professional nomad in Paris while working at the Louvre museum, in Tokyo as an architectural apprentice, and in Thailand as a scuba diving professional.
From there, Brandon secured his reputation as an adventure prodigy when he became the youngest person to join the coveted team of writers at Lonely Planet, the world's most prominent travel brand. He crossed the globe authoring books to far-flung destinations like Iceland, Turkey and Malaysia, and was awarded the prestigious SATW Lowell Thomas gold prize for his outstanding achievements in guidebook writing.
Today, Brandon contributes to a variety of prestigious publications including Travel + Leisure and The Daily Beast, and leads worldwide expeditions for elite jetsetters. He has become one of the foremost authorities on both five-star luxury and grass roots travel-he is just as comfortable trekking through the backwaters of Borneo as he is on the beaches of Bora Bora. Brandon has a knack for turning his knowledge of the planet into fun and meaningful experiences, whether it's helping with wildlife conservation in Kenya's Naboisho Conservancy, cliff-climbing through the Grampians in Australia's Outback, or playing beer pong at your local microbrewery. Ultimately, Brandon just wants people to get out there and explore.
