‘Go Slow’ in Belize

When it comes to underwater attractions it’s hard to beat the biggest and most well-known reef system in the world, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.  If I hadn’t traveled I wouldn’t have even heard about the second place holder Belize which squeezes itself below Mexico in the Western Caribbean. This definitely isn’t because of…

Three of the Best Cities in the World to Party

One day you and your mates will be sitting there having a few drinks when someone will proclaim, beer in hand, that it’s time to have a group trip somewhere. Along with the countries, cities and tourist attractions you will all plan on seeing, there will be at least one city you will visit just…

So You Want to Climb an Erupting Volcano?

Firstly that’s crazy, just don’t. Here is the closest you can get though. In the south of Chile just above Patagonia is the town of Pucón, the adventure capital of Chile. With a lake on one site, the Andes behind and a snow capped volcano sitting menacingly above it this already seems like a pretty…

The World’s Largest Salt Flats, Salar de Uyuni

Moving on from Potosi was a ridiculously scenic bus trip through Bolivia’s high desert to the town of Uyuni which sits at the edge of the biggest salt flat in the world, the Salar de Uyuni. Uyuni isn’t really much of a city, its main reason for existing is to use as a base for…

Things You’re Likely to Discover if You Travel For a Year

Everyone has their reasons A year ago I left my apartment, sold most of my furniture and appliances, packed my bags and then said goodbye to all of my family and friends to go travelling on an open ended holiday. I had a list of hundreds of places around the world I wanted to visit…

The Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca and the Death Road

Just before I left to hike the Inca Trail we all met up with the Canadian’s from Huacachina. Right away we realised that we were a pretty sweet crew and decided to keep going with the journey south together when I finished the hike. While all of this was happening Mariska finally became too sick…

The Inca Trail and Cuzco

I’ve been hiking for as long as I can remember. From the time I could first walk my parents and grandparents would take me for walks through the forest at home and by the time I was 6 or 7 years old I would go off exploring on my own. I’d return at the end…

San Francisco, Yosemite and Big Sur

The bus trip up to San Francisco was a long and kind of boring affair. Once through the ranges north of Los Angeles it started raining torrentially and the temperature fell with it. Searching on the internet I found that there were flood warnings everywhere and my plans to drive out to Yosemite started to…

Europe’s Unknown Hiking Paradise – Part Two

The drive to Zabljak is to put it simply, stunning. All of the mountain ranges in Montenegro are made up of the same limestone/Karst region that makes Croatia and Greece so spectacular. The other result of this is that most of the rainwater that falls simply percolates into the ground and then into underground rivers….

Europe’s Unknown Hiking Paradise – Part One

Back in August 2015 I was travelling along the coast of Croatia when I met another Australian guy, Nate, who was also travelling solo and heading south. We hung out for the next couple of days with some other travelers doing the usual Croatian tourist musts; beach, party, admiring yachts, chilling and admiring the ladies…

New York – The Blizzard Apocalypse

The blizzard was definitely coming and for the days leading up to Friday it was all the news could talk about. The news in America isn’t really like news at home, I’d call it more news-tainment and you will never, ever, see a story about something outside America. They were really doing their best to…
