Belarus Road Trip – Castles and Statues

The driving in Belarus has a level of passive-aggressiveness that I have only ever witnessed before in Russia. The traffic is kept flowing by the mega 6-lane highways around Minsk, and drivers on these roads can expect to be tailgated at crazy distances and undertaken and overtaken at the same time no matter what speed...

New Orleans – all the funs

I had the best time in The Big Easy! This is the most charismatic and friendly place and I would love to go back. It was a whistle-stop tour and I feel like I hit most of the major must-do things! I arrived late at the airport and James drove from his home in Florida... Continue Reading →

Paraguay and the drive to Iberá

Corrientes – off the beaten track

Corrientes is a great place to spend a few days! An unexpected gem when really all we needed was a stopover to break up a 1,400km drive. It's a chilled out place where you could easily get lost for two weeks unwinding. We spent our time walking along the huge Paraná River and going to... Continue Reading →

Exploring Rapa Nui with my biker gang

My night in the tent by the ocean was fantastic, if a little terrifying. Every now and again, a huge booming wave would hit the coast, waking me up with the thought I might be washed away. On closer inspection this afternoon the cliffs are fairly high and pretty sturdy, so tonight I expect I... Continue Reading →
