My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • See wild gorilla
  • Explore Canada
  • Sail across the Atlantic
  • Flying safari along the Skeleton Coast in Namibia

Best Moments

  • After hours of searching, Lolo my guide and I finally sighted a new born baby leopard in the Maasai Mara, and watched it playing with its mother, with absolutely no other cars around as we ate our breakfast.
  • Flying up the Kenyan coast, metres above the clear blue water having crammed 3 people into a 2 man plane, before landing on the beach at Manda Bay.
  • Helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.
  • Arriving into Rome at sunrise and viewing the city from the top of a hill, having marched there from our hotel outside the city and walked there from Siena over the previous 2 weeks, full to the brim with fantastic Italian food and wine.
  • Sitting at Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park with my family, marvelling at the view of the Half Dome as the sun came up; our last day in the park before driving onto see the gigantic redwoods.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Being stranded and penniless on Isla Grande in Brazil, camping by the beach, living off whatever we could scratch together and waiting for our ferry in three days time. Our first meal on the mainland never tasted so good.

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Wandering around Split, with our luggage at 2am, half laughing half crying, having abandoned our boat when we found out that the captain and his son, were wanted criminals in Croatia.
