TNT/STA Travel Show visit

Travel shows. I find it very difficult to go to a travel show and just browse. It’s like walking into Starbucks, having a look at the menu and then leaving. Or going to Ikea and not buying any Swedish food at the very end to go with your shower mats and bendy lamps.

There is something oddly exciting about taking the first train to the airport as the sun is still hiding behind the horizon and the city is not yet awoken from its slumber. Or maybe it’s just to do with flights being cheaper first thing in the morning.

Planning Your Trip

So, you know where you’re going. You’ve spent countless hours on the Internet researching your trip, got an awesome tip-off from your friends or simply stuck a pin on a map without looking.

Soon you will be exploring ancient ruins, climbing mountains and trying exotic foods from around the world, but deciding to take the plunge can be difficult.

A Taste of Georgia

I decided to enjoy the fantastic weather that descended on London this weekend and my buddy and I headed to Borough Market (see my post on my first visit here) and got some chicken gyoza and freshly-made bread. As we looked for somewhere to sit and enjoy the sunshine and the food, we heard the sounds of music coming from around the corner.

A Career Change?

So I’ve turned 30 a couple of months back and I must be having some sort of a crisis because I’ve been thinking about what I’m doing with my life. I have quite a few plans for the next ten years, namely to visit 60 countries before I turn 40 but at the rate I am going, I might need to be a bit more ambitious!

A Night in Memphis

My recent road trip around the United States gave me an opportunity to spend time in some fascinating places and discover this amazing country. I didn’t always get as much time in each place as I would have liked and Memphis was one of them.
