We are Dan and Beck; an Australian/British couple, collectively known as the ‘Speed Hiking Couple’. Hiking in Norway is actually where we met! After combining years of travel-know-how, hiking and outdoor adventure, we created Travel Made Me Do It.
Between us, we have travelled extensively throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia – with hiking and speed hiking being an obvious focus.
With a BSc/ Master of Physiotherapy qualification, Dan has a broad knowledge and deep appreciation for exercise. He has worked as a musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist in various roles within Australia and the UK for 7+ years. His passion for sport, the outdoors and in particular, hiking continues to flourish as co-founder of Travel Made Me Do It. By planning hiking based trips, he continues to help and support fellow hikers.
A true creative at heart, Beck holds a BA (hons) in Textile Design. She has worked as a Visual Merchandiser & Window Stylist for the past 11+ years. The job has seen her travel extensively throughout the whole of the UK & Ireland.
