Interview 048: Layton Keddy | Off The Beaten Path in Australia And Papua New Guinea

In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I catch up with Layton Keddy while he is in Australia. In 2019, Layton decided to leave Saskatchewan, Canada, and go explore the world by moving to Australia so as to be able to work and travel.  With bike in hand, he would use his holidays and breaks to explore the vastness that is Australia and Tasmania. When an opportunity arose for him to take his work experience to Papua New Guinea, Layton was thrilled to have the chance to learn about a completely different way of life and experience their culture by bike.

Cheers Layton. Keep on pedalling.
