Life is in the detail

The perfect way to enjoy any bluebird day, on any mountain, is with vin chaud and apr├Ęs.

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Find someone who wants to come to Iran with me, and then go
  • Return to the Philippines and spend a long time exploring
  • Visit some of far Eastern Europe

Best Moments

  • Making it back to our accommodation in Delhi after a hairy 36 hour round trip on the Indian Highways, with a driver who didn't sleep - just to see the most magnificent Golden Temple at Amritsar, and the Wagah Border Ceremony.
  • Cycling through rural China, and seeing so many jaws drop when we passed local workers and called out Nihao!
  • Finding Nemo while snorkelling in Coron, during an intense thunderstorm.
  • Favourite Place: walking the ramparts near Dung Gate in Jerusalem (bond.flicked.surfaces). The most effective way to soak up the magic of Jerusalem - you can, for a few shekels, climb up and wander along the city walls. It's very peaceful, in stark contrast to the city's hustle and bustle and allows you time to breathe, to ponder life and to marvel at the beauty of the ancient city.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Navigating through Hebron with a clueless chum and very minimal Arabic or Hebrew. And no map.
  • A gruelling sleeper train journey in the lowest of classes across China, before we worked out how to book better seats. There was no sleep to be had, and we were the attraction of the century to the passengers on board.

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Standing in the pitch black at 3am eating bamba (Israeli peanut butter flavoured wotsits) sandwiched between two squares of chocolate, after helping a friend we had made move from a normal apartment to a huge dome, made of metal poles and fabric. Sometimes I am not sure if I dreamt it.
