And I am not referring to the antipodean one but the country on the West Coast of Africa, known as Ghana. [History time: Ghana was the first African country to gain independence from the British empire. It was, and still is known as the Gold Coast because of the wealth...

When travelling finding a decent toilet is always going to be a lottery, and more often than not you're not going to be anywhere the jackpot. If anything you're going home with the booby prize. But, when you are overlanding the odds definitely lessen and that jackpot (...

Our trip to Central Asia was decided and agreed to during an evening in the pub. Would I never learn? I decided to climb (the not so wonderful) Kilimanjaro after an evening in the pub, a feat I shall never repeat. Oh well, this trip was cheap, someone else would be in...

One thing that is glaringly obvious in Central Asia (Turkmenistan & Uzbekistan so far) is that there are no black people. Not a one, not even another bloody tourist. We are a rarity, and it seems one to be recorded on a sly photo taken on phone (I can see you), or by t...

Otherwise known as our time in Rurrenabaque. Since I was small and first came across Tarzan Lord of the Apes or Master of Greyskall, I have always loved the thought of the jungle. I have always imagined myself swinging through the trees and being the Jane that Tarzan d...

It's been some time since I uploaded a post, apologies for the radio silence but between Bolivian Beli (I think it was the chicken curry, 'The Man' insists it was the nuts & dried fruit), and limited Internet it has been difficult to write about our Bolivian and Peruvi...

I write this post from the comfort of our sun blessed campsite a few days after leaving Argentina. Said campsite can be found in the dry land that is San Pedro de Atacama. Yes, after all that talk about camping I am camping...again
