A travel-niversary

self employed, Travel, Uncategorized

Last week it was our two year anniversary from being away from home. As far as I’m concerned it’s not exactly something we’ve had time to celebrate or even notice, there’s always so much going on there doesn’t seem to be time to stop and recollect what we’ve achieved.

But I guess truthfully, it’s a pretty important milestone for us. We have been across North America, South America and Australia and now we are living in New Zealand, and since leaving home back in January 2015 so much has changed for us.

This year my partner and I were away from home at Christmas, and we decided to spend the holiday in Buenos Aires. And like everyone away from their home countries, it wasn’t really going to be “Christmas” for us this year without England and everything in it.

The strange world of travelling part two: The nine lives of travelling

Another country, another airport, another city, another hostel, another bathroom, another bed. When you move from place to place, from country to country, seeing one place after the other, it doesn’t necessarily make you gaze in awe at everything you see, as you would expect and it definitely doesn’t make you feel like you are on holiday. However much you wish it would sometimes.

If you are a first time Amazon trekker and are wondering what to expect, here’s a little insight.

The day my partner and I arrived in the Amazon Rainforest it was raining heavily (it’s kind of something you expect), the mud was thick, and we had to trudge a long way through the thick forest to reach our camp. By then everything was wet, we had already had enough.

The Strange World of “Travelling”: Part One

My partner and I have been “travelling” for nearly seven months now, and I’m not going to lie, it’s often a lot like hard work. We haven’t been travelling for every day of the seven months, for us that would be impossible. For most of the time we have been living in countries around the world, including the USA and Colombia, and are moving around the world slowly, from country to country.

Top Eight Fashion Staples for the Road: The Backpackers Style Guide

Life on the road is frustrating if you love clothes. Moving from one place to the next and not knowing where your next fashion fix is coming from. What’s more, you are probably taking a lot of selfies and would like a variety of clothes in your backpack to distinguish between the photos, more than anything…

New Orleans: Getting out of the French Quarter and discovering Katrina

Cycling, Music, New Orleans, travel, USA

Like any city, in any country, on any continent, you can stay in the tourist trap centre, or you can veer off into the depths of reality and explore suburban life. In most cities you are warned not to leave the tourist district. In the mind of your advisers, it’s best to stay with other vulnerable tourists, presumably this area is safer than walking around a neighbourhood where people actually live? Strange logic.

Travel Piece: The Charming Charles Bridge in Prague

Europe, Prague, travel

Stepping onto the wide stone fortress that is Charles Bridge, I took in what was to be our home for the next four days. A cacophony of sounds and sights filled my eyes and ears. The rapid rhythms of the Charles Bridge Band, the peaceful melodies of the flute seller, and the wide and serene blue waters of the river Danube, adding a small dose of stillness in all of the chaos.
