Our guides are trained to give you the adventurous, authentic and safe Off The Path experience you are looking for. They do not guide overseas merely for a free vacation. All of our staff are abroad for one reason: they love the country they are guiding. Your guide will have a nuanced understanding of each location, from the history, spirituality and culture to the economics and architecture.

Justin Martin- Co-owner, media and marketing director
Film work, community outreach, research projects and an insatiable appetite are among the many reasons Justin Martin has found himself overseas over the years. He has filmed and traveled in over twenty-five countries. Justin’s favorite trip was an eight month overland route from the west coast of Europe to the east coast of Asia using solely local transportation.
Colin Blevins- International guide
Colin is the kind of guy who’s at his best when his life revolves around a single backpack and Indian train schedules. Traveling internationally since he was fifteen he’s only spent three winters in the last decade at home in the Pacific Northwest and somehow managed to earn a BA in Experiential Education from Fairhaven College in Bellingham, WA. Over the last five years he has been guiding and designing academic study abroad programs in South East Asia, China, and India. Colin’s interests while traveling lie in food systems (and food), environmental issues, culture, adventure, and anything to do with two wheels.
