To most people, the 5th of November means fireworks, bonfires and toffee apples, but for me, November 5th will always hold a completely different meaning. For me, it was the start of something amazing. It was the day I left the UK to embark upon the most epic of adventures; put simply, it was the … More One Year Today
This is it. I am actually leaving. Right now. I’m sitting in Heathrow Airport, waiting to board my plane to Mumbai and then onto Bangkok. This time tomorrow I will be at my hostel, with my friends, at the very start of my year long adventure. And I am absolutely pumped for it. I’ve been … More Come Hell or High Water
So as the title of this post suggests, it is now only two weeks until I depart for my epic RTW adventure. Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday that I was on the phone to Chris (from STA Travel and BackpackerBanter) booking all my flights…and that was in April, a whole … More Two Weeks and Counting…
Now that summer is over (boohoo) and I’m back in the UK after my great American adventure, I’ve suddenly realised how soon it actually is that I’m leaving again for the next big trip…yes that’s right, I’m off in a matter of weeks (7 to be precise), and I’m going Around The World! Plans have … More Where To Next?
With only 1 week until camp ends and we leave this place we’ve come to call home for the last few months, there’s quite a lot of madness in the air. Everyone is excitable and hyper, but also a little bit sad that it’s all coming to an end. A few people have left already, … More Coming To An End…
Eeeeeeek! I’ve just got off the phone with Chris at STA, and I am so excited to announce that my RTW trip is all booked! Well, my flights are booked at least. I’m still a bit undecided about what I’m doing once I get to SE Asia, but I’m got a bit of time to … More All Booked!
My travel plans are finally starting to come together. I’ve been emailing Chris (of Backpacker Banter and STA Travel) back and forth over the last week, getting all my dates and plans sorted, trying to decide what to do and where to go. He’s been fantastic, getting me the cheapest deals and giving me some … More Booking and Backpacking
I’ve been doing a bit more research for my round the world trip next year, and as I’m unsure of my friends’ exact plans, I’ve been looking at perhaps doing a group tour in South East Asia with Gap Adventures, just so I have something planned for definite, and won’t arrive completely alone.
So in preparation for my upcoming RTW trip I’ve been going through all the brochures I got from STA (we went and had a chat with them last week about our plans), and even though I’m not going be leaving for another 10 months and nothing’s even booked yet, I’m so excited. I’m like a … More Planning + Costing
This is the question I’ve been asking myself over the last few weeks, as I plan for my next big adventure. As an explorer and wanderer, I feel like I should be able to travel light, to not be weighed down by my material possessions, but as a blogger, photographer and film-maker, I also think … More Does Technology + Travel = Disaster?
