Hi, we’re Dan and Beck! We are an Australian/British couple collectively known as the ‘Speed Hiking Couple’. We are also the proud founders of Travel Made Me Do It – a website dedicated to publishing comprehensive itineraries to help you plan your next hiking based adventure. 

We love nothing more than hiking, seeking natural wonders and enjoying the great outdoors. Hiking in Norway is actually where we met!

Travel doesn’t come for free. But that’s no reason to miss out. Our style of travel isn’t frivolous nor is it stringent. We pride ourselves on being SMART hikers, rather than budget hikers.

The hiking itineraries on this website show you how to follow this smart style of travel. They’re based on thorough research, years of personal travel experience and basic practical advice.
