From the airport we were picked up by the shuttle service from the Blue Lagoon Spa. They whisked us off to the spa, with our faces pressed against the glass taking in the stark surroundings. If you search for things to do in Iceland, hitting up the Blue Lagoon is at the top of the list for a good reason.
I’ve been using some form of the Maxpedition Fatboy for over five years. I picked up my first one in 2010 just before heading off on a trip through Mexico, Cuba and Central America. A few years later I left it in a hostel in Argentina, by the time I realised and called the hostel it was nowhere to be found.
I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time in the USA over the past few years. Working at a summer camp in New York state in 2010 and 2011, road tripping in 2014 and Thru Hiking the AT in 2015. There are some points in here I think many Americans may not realise about their wonderful country. Feel free to agree with me, disagree with me and question me in the comments.
After a long and arduous journey from Tokyo we arrived in Kathmandu, colourful, crazy, congested Kathmandu. After the clean streets and iced coffees of Tokyo, Kathmandu came as a shock. Our taxi ride from the airport to the tourist area of Thamel gave us a taste of what was to come. Crazy driving and traffic, […]
We explored another country town that day and the weather was really kind to us, bright sunshine and blue sky’s making for some great views and photography.

So yeah they have like a million different bidet settings including specific ones for the ladies, heated seats to keep your tush […]
As mentioned in a previous post I’ve been wanting to travel to Japan for a long time. I guess it started as a teen with exposure to Anime and then the stylistic view of Japan in Kill Bill. Then I read James Clavell’s Epic – Shogun, a book I highly recommend. Since then Ive been dreaming of […]
A Week in Bali. Don’t worry mum, it wasn’t me or anyone we know having the heart attack. So originally the plan for this trip was to go hiking in Nepal with Click and Cheesebeard, two good friends from the Appalachian Trail last year. Then Michelle decided she wanted to get involved, then No-Hat from […]
First of all just let me say that Komodo has the best diving I’ve ever done and I’ve been lucky enough to dive some pretty good spots around the world. Although Komodo isn’t as accessible as some other great diving spots it’s totally do-able and definitely worthwhile. There are essentially two options for diving in […]
To check out Indonesia Part 1 click HERE The day we arrived on Gili Air I was hit hard with Travellers Tummy or Delhi Belly, or I guess I should call it Gili Gut. Whatever I call it, it was miserable. I’ll spare you the gory details but let’s just say the toilet was my […]
