A passion to inspire life changing adventure

A community adventure lifestyle brand

explmore is currently based in Richmond, Virginia and founded and owned by Charles, the son of authors, Alec and Jan Forman. The brand officially launched via explmore.com in February 2016. 

explmore is built on the original 1977 overland adventures of Alec and Jan Forman and their book, Strangers Like Angels: With a Devil or Two to Boot. Adventures which took them across 40,000 miles, through 29 countries-, in Europe, Africa and Asia — navigating with just maps and a compass.

With a passion to inspire people, to explore more of the world, engage with others, and embrace global cultures. We firmly believe that life with exploration enhances our understanding for each other, our planet, and enables positive progression. We invite you to be inspired by the stories of the past and present, and discover your own life-changing adventures!
