Eating Bolivia and Chile

Eating Bolivia and Chile

The amount of times I’ve watched ‘I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here’ I tell you. Twice, I think. And boy what times I had! Celebrities climbing over things, jumping out of planes and sleeping in a jungle. And everytime I watched someone complain I got frustrated! I would love to climb over things, jump out of planes and sleep in the jungle!

But then I’d watch them eat witchedygrubs. And then I’d find myself less jealous… Read the rest of this entry

The Inca’s live on…

The Inca’s live on…

Before we went travelling we weren’t exactly sure what to expect. We did however, know we wanted to tick three things off our list:

1) We wanted to learn as much as possible about each country we visited.

2) We wanted to have fun.

3) We wanted to trek to Machu Picchu.

The first two didn’t need much preparation, but the third required us to book a few months in advance and to have a certain amount of physical ability. We researched the best tour company to go with (inbetween obsessively google imaging the wonder) and one company came out on top – Llama Path. They were the most expensive but we went with them anyway because at that time, we had jobs. Read the rest of this entry

In the jungle, in the in the jungle

Relaxing with a couple of drinks looking out over Nepal’s Chitwan National Park gives you a feeling of tranquility. Nothing can go wrong – it’s just you and the moment. And man eating crocodiles. And blind, charging rhinos, wasps the size of testicles and I’m pretty sure I heard someone mention a tiger. But other than that. Carefree bliss. Read the rest of this entry

Top five reasons to travel (in my humble opinion)

I was reading this blog post on Bootsnall.com and it got me thinking… why do I want to travel? To spend hours and days on sweaty public transport, to live out of a bag in grotty guesthouses with cold showers, holes in the ground for toilets and no proper towels and duvets – why do I do this?

The perfect backpack for a short arse

If you’ve read Tim’s first post, you probably think that this is a silly and childish blog. It’s not. It’s about serious travel things, like buying a backpack.

When you’re looking for a backpack, don’t ever underestimate the importance of a perfect fit… like I did back in 2009.

According to the countdown on our homepage, its 29 days until our plane takes off from London Heathrow. And 30 until we land in Kathmandu. Ah man that’s a long flight… I hope they have the Muppets movie on board. And booze. Read the rest of this entry
