About BaldHiker

BaldHiker, founded by Paul Steele in 2010, started as a personal blog. Over the years it has grown into a vibrant well read and shared place, filled with the travel stories of Paul Steele and friends from all over the world. You can also find food and drink, places to stay, tech gadgets, fashion and clothing. Plus nature and animals from all corners of the globe. A place where you can experience our personal views on the places we’ve visited, from idyllic beaches, great hikes, to wonderful accommodation, our personal reviews on tech and kit we use, and of course the food we love…
