Food, archaeology and beer are a few of the driving factors behind author and photographer Jim O’Donnell’s twenty-five years of travel. Those addictive factors have taken Jim O’Donnell to over forty countries on five continents and are at least partially to blame for the five languages he is sure he can stumble through.
Jim is the author of “Notes for the Aurora Society: 1500 Miles on Foot Across Finland”, “Rise and Go” a collection of over 200 photographs and short stories from years on the road as well as numerous other sordid tales, articles, half-finished novels, works in progress, essays and other scribbling.
A single-father to two adventurous young-ins, Jim blogs at Around the World in Eighty Years and is currently working on a book about the relationship between the Viking and Islamic worlds in the Middle Ages. He is forever on the lookout for new writing and photography opportunities
