If you’re on this website, I am going to assume you have an interest in traveling. Maybe it’s a fleeting idea that crossed your mind after watching The Beach, or maybe you’re still replaying travel memories from a few years ago and want to make new ones. This section is to inspire you to take your dreams and make them a reality. What else would you like to see? Let me know, and I’ll make it happen.

Real-live-human-beings giving you the low down on what it’s like to travel. How travel has changed them, what they’ve learned, what they’ve liked and disliked.

Life is short, live it!
