The Wanderweg’s authors are just normal, everyday people from around the globe who absolutely love to roam. Scroll through and learn about our contributors and how their diverse backgrounds effect their work.

Ryan Skinner

A founding member of The Wanderweg and former helicopter mechanic, Ryan is an American national living abroad in Germany as an expat. He grew up in the wide desert landscapes of Las Vegas and later in the spectacular, alpine beauty of the Reno/Tahoe area of Nevada. Ryan runs our Youtube channel and there you can see him taking on everything from quick day hikesĀ in his beloved Bavarian Woods to the peaks of the Sierra Nevadas. He also has been known to document the occasional German Volksfest, when he has the time of course.
