‘To Travel Is To Live’

‘To Travel Is To Live’

May 6, 2016

I recently read this ridiculous article by a man who accused everybody that travels of being unhappy, unsuccessful and living a mediocre life. The article didn’t offend me, it just made me grateful that I won’t come across closed minded individuals like him on my journey around the world. It also triggered many thoughts and reflections about my incredible...

A Weekend on Fraser Island

A Weekend on Fraser Island

Feb 26, 2016

Fraser Island is the world’s biggest sand island and a hotspot for backpackers visiting Australia, so after a couple of years living here I thought it was time to check it out for myself! I’m not normally one for group touring, but it’s a fantastic way to see the highlights of a destination in a limited amount of time. We went with a company called...

2015 Travel Mileage

2015 Travel Mileage

Jan 11, 2016

I’ve popped my glasses on and become a geek once again… Here’s this years TSW travel miles I visited three new countries in 2015 but not managed to get anywhere near 2013 or 2014 in relation to mileage.

Oct 13, 2015

If you haven’t been travelling, you may think that it’s all very glamorous. Probably because, that’s what people like to make out.

Don’t get me wrong, I think that travelling is awesome fun; it’s eye-opening and jaw-dropping, but glamorous sure wouldn’t be a word...

A While Back, In Indonesia

A While Back, In Indonesia

Jun 7, 2015

So, this post was a long time coming. I visited Indonesia almost two years ago. The reason for the ridiculously late post is because I am still undecided about how I feel regarding the three weeks that I spent in Bali, Lembongan and Gili T. Let’s start with Bali. Now, Bali was certainly not what I was expecting. This was mainly my fault for my lack of...

Two Years on the Road

Two Years on the Road

Apr 26, 2015

Two years ago today I left the UK. I, like many others, was completely sick of living a mundane life of routine and had the calling to travel. I saved like crazy, quit my job, bought my first ever backpack and got on a plane to Asia, with no set plans. Although I can remember exactly how I felt on the plane ride and I can recall every little detail from my first...
