My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Heli-skiing in Alaska. ski on un-pisted, untouched virgin snow all day every day
  • Fly-fishing in the Kamchatka province of Russia. Usually only known as a stopping off point in the board game RISK, it is also home to some of the best fly fishing in the world
  • Embark on a live-aboard dive trip in the Galapagos Islands. Having seen the islands and had a taster of the sea-life I want to go back for more
  • Get to Nicaragua before the rest of the world discovers it

Best Moments

  • Catching my first sailfish in the sport fishing capital of the world Islamorada, Florida (Catch and release obviously)
  • Going on a road trip from London to Southern Spain on a couple of beefy motorbikes
  • Having drinks in the Oval office of the White House on Christmas Eve. I was too young for the Eggnog
  • The moment you see your first giant Manta Ray coming out of the deep, in my case in the Philippines
  • My favourite place? Owner.bound.lance

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Driving 6 hours from Havana to Maria La Gorda only to find out that all 6 rooms at the hotel were full. Instead the owner put us up in disused weather station in a mangrove swamp that had hundreds of bats flying through the rooms and corridors feeding on the plentiful mosquitoes. Not the best nights sleep.

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Waking up in a camp-site on Lake Placid with a skunk in the doorway of the tent trying to work out how to shoo it away without triggering its infamous defence mechanism, we failed.
