My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • I'd love to go on a safari in Kenya
  • See Iguazu Falls for myself
  • I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights and go dog sledding in some arctic wonderland

Best Moments

  • Visiting Tikal whilst I living in Guatemala - an incredible experience that I'd love to repeat one day
  • Spending five weeks in Rome, walking the streets like a local and enjoying every minute of it

Toughest Travel Moment

  • A "leisurely" bike ride that, according to the guide book, was meant to take half an hour from our casa particular in Trinidad, Cuba to the beach in the blazing heat. We were surprised we were the only ones cycling as we passed a large queue of locals and tourists lined up for the half hourly bus that took another route. When we finally reached the beach two hours later, having only had a light breakfast of fruit and drinking our whole day's supply of water, we realised our mistake. Needless to say we took the bus the next day!

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Being made to belly dance in front of a boat load of tourists in Tunisia... the idea was that other people would join in but to my embarrassment I was the only one who gave in to their insistence!
