Tom likes to travel, which is perfect, really, considering his role at Escapism. When he's not testing out mattresses all over the UK, lusting over US national parks, or following his stomach across the south of France, you'll probably find him writing about his latest adventures at Escapism HQ, or nerding out about the latest gear.
