THE WEEKLY #50: 240 HOURS OF CONSECUTIVE SWEATING

Varanasi was mental. In a good way. Traffic, cows, rubbish, noise, dust, animals, vendors and of course the excruciating heat slowly wear you down day by day. However,  I honestly had a great time in Varanasi, but my 10 days in the holy city were challenging to say the least. Everybody always says backpacking in …

THE WEEKLY #49: BUNGEE JUMPING & SMUGGLING AT THE INDIAN BORDER

I did two crazy things this week. One of them involved smuggling illegal goods into India and the other was located on a 160m-high bridge above a raging river. Having just arrived back from the EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK I didn’t waste any time. The next day I took off with my trekking guide to the …

THE WEEKLY #44: CRUISIN’ IN THE CARIBBEAN

What a crazy week of cruise adventures throughout the Caribbean working with Royal Caribbean. I arrived at the Marriott in Fort Lauderdale and I was greeted by a huge trolley of packages.

THE WEEKLY #43: YOU BETTER BELIZE IT

After a full-on two weeks in Guatemala, I crossed the border via bus. Once into Belize city, I got straight on a water-taxi aka a boat and cruised for an hour to the popular tourist destination, Caye Caulker. I wasn’t really sure what to expect here although other travelers had told me you could snorkel …
