Hello, and welcome to Floppy Hat Adventures! My name is William Bessette and I am a freelance writer and overall adventurer. Whether it be reviewing a new restaurant in my home town of Portland, Oregon, or jetting off to new corner of the country or world, I’m usually on the go.
This is why I’ve created Floppy Hat Adventures. My mission is to introduce you to new and exciting parts of the world and the communities that make up our diverse global fabric.
My focus is on eco-tourism, community involvement, dining, adventuring and LGBTQ+ travel.
I will be introducing you through articles, photos and videos, to places all over the globe through videos, blogs and articles. Through my partnership with Eco Companion, I will be bringing you the latest in eco-tourism from across the world.
So join me in my adventures as I discover the travel secrets you want to know.
Now grab your floppy hat and let’s go!
Since I was a kid, I was very active, always playing outside, playing pickup football, basketball, foot-racing people in the street, rollerblading, learning tricks on BMX bikes, skateboards, Razor Scooters, climbing trees and anything else I can get myself into.
I took all that energy and put it into competing in little league baseball then USA Track and Field Junior Olympics.
While growing up my family felt it important to travel and see as much as we could. They took us on many trips all over the country, which made us open minded and more complete people.
This made me get the travel bug at a very young age.
So after meeting William and working a career for almost seven years, traveling around the world with him- even though I would no longer be making money and like stability- was a fairly easy decision.
