Trekking Poles Will Make Your Life Better... And Your Triceps Sexier.

CHILE | Fri, 6 Mar 2015 | By thehappytalent | Views [27]

Five boyfriends ago, I used to think that walking sticks -- err, trekking poles -- were dorky, overpriced and pointless. I'm not old, so why do I need sticks to help me hike? But then he invited me on a backpacking trip, and he convinced me not to ... Read more >

SPAIN | Thu, 17 Jul 2014 | By dopelorrie | Views [973]

Hmm where to start. I think I left off with my first couple of days in Barcelona. I did quite a bit while I was there but I hope to visit again because I feel like there was so much other ood but it's entirely possible. Now, this cool s**t that I wasn't ... Read more >

Spain Trip Has Started!

SPAIN | Mon, 7 Jul 2014 | By dopelorrie | Views [110]

So I´m recapping the last couple of days of been here. Internet has been a bit of an issue but I think from now on I should be okay. Firewalls and my tablet just not connecting to routers seem to have been the the culprit in most cases. My host ... Read more >

50 things I've learnt as a solo backpacker in Asia (in no particular order)

WORLDWIDE | Fri, 16 May 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [128]

1. All Asian countries have their "own time" when doing things. A bus meant to leave at  8am  will most probably not leave at  8am . It might leave at  8.30am . It might leave at  9am . Accept that lateness is ... Read more >

MALAWI | Sun, 27 Apr 2014 | By olliegoldson | Views [79]

Malawi!! Yes, it is still amazing. On the drive up from Zambia to Kande I jumped in to the cab of the truck and spent some time with the tour leader and driver. I always had an idea but after today these two have definitely become very good friends ... Read more >

Zooming Through Zambia

ZAMBIA | Sun, 27 Apr 2014 | By olliegoldson | Views [57]

Zambia. This blog post is going to be short and sweet as nothing really happened through the rest of Zambia. This country is extensive so it is mainly long driving days and lots of time spent on the truck. I spent most of my days reading and getting ... Read more >

Killing Time In Kafue

ZAMBIA | Sun, 27 Apr 2014 | By olliegoldson | Views [74]

Woo hoo! Something new for my trip up North, we didn’t do this part of the journey down South. It’s hard to fit it in so we bypass and head straight on. I have to say though that I am glad that on the way up we find the time to stop in. Only ... Read more >

Livingstone, Zambia! Sitting on the shores of the Zambezi river with a view to the Smoke That Thunders (Mosi O Tunya) I have to say that Zambia is another highlight. I have spent many more days here than usual and I am ready to get back on the road ... Read more >

To Kathmandu

NEPAL | Fri, 28 Mar 2014 | By timhughes55 | Views [129]

Checked in a 13kg backpack and carried on another 8kg of stuff that didn't fit in it. All these bags I seem to need... a backpack to carry, a duffle to give to the porters, a day pack for rest days and a bag to leave in Kathmandu.... Too much stuff I'm ... Read more >

Week 2 - Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Fri, 31 Jan 2014 | By escape | Views [90]

Being a volunteer in international development, I had expected life to be a little hard. Cambodia after all is a “third world” country. I'm sure it is for many of the locals here, including the 1/3 who live below the poverty line, however, ... Read more >

Summarising a Year on The Road

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 21 Jan 2014 | By butterfly-freed | Views [368] | Comments [2]

I'm trying to remember that person who set out to follow her dream over fifty weeks ago. The one who decided that if you were not happy with your life, it made sense to do something about it by getting rid of unwanted encumbrances and make a fresh ... Read more >

Sunset on SE Asia

THAILAND | Fri, 10 Jan 2014 | By butterfly-freed | Views [1090]

Six months ago I arrived in Bangkok to a culture for which I had no yardstick, no previous point of reference and for which I was unprepared. Arriving in The Land of Smiles to find none, and in fact finding more a feeling of hostility towards 'just another ... Read more >

Loitering around Rabat

MOROCCO | Mon, 16 Dec 2013 | By macedonboy | Views [1031]

I’m heading up to Rabat on the train today. The trains to Rabat are quite regular at two hours apart. So I figured I’d sleep early the night before aiming for 0855 morning train. I do get up early enough to both get some breakfast at the ... Read more >
