My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • See a jaguar in the wild. Despite various trips to the Amazon and Pantanal, I am yet to catch a glimpse of one
  • Drive a Porsche over the Alps
  • Ride with gauchos in Patagonia
  • Visit the Arctic and hopefully see a polar bear

Best Moments

  • Driving across the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia
  • Flying at less than 100 feet over the sand dunes of the Skeleton Coast in Namibia
  • Having a silverback Mountain Gorilla step on my toe in Uganda as he walked past me
  • Being greeted with a traditional sing-sing by 300 villagers in the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea
  • Having penguins dart past my shoulder whilst being chased by sea lions in the Galapagos

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Having Molotov cocktails thrown at our bus in Puno, Peru during an anti-government protest

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Fishing for piranhas in the Pantanal with a local who insisted we stuff our pockets with red meat and wade, waist-deep into the water to catch the fish.
