A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with a Single Step

My passion for travel started when I use to run away from home. Not that there was anything wrong growing up. I had a great childhood. No, I ran away to explore without permission. I would blag my way on to National Express coaches or trains and just see where I ended up. I now need to watch travel programmes with a back scratcher to see to my itchy feet, especially at the present moment when current travel restrictions don’t allow us to go abroad.

I have been lucky enough to visit a lot of this world but not as much as I would like to. I would love to train it from Beijing to Moscow. While I’m typing this why don’t I start a list. See if I can cross some of them off and write about them in my travel blog and share recipes from the places where I eat. Mobility is sometimes an issue with me but when I read stories of men without limbs climbing Everest it puts things in perspective. Dodgy knees, hips and back are chipped nails in comparison. 

  • Train from Moscow to Beijing. Yes, I know it’s the other way around from what I just said, but I just changed my mind.
  • Drive across the USA.
  • Patagonia
  • Middle of some jungle somewhere.

Travel Plans ( March 2022)

They are letting out to play and travel again! Woop woop.

I am in the process of planning a few trips Following the sun, the rain, snow and ice. Travelling to places where the weather conditions will be extreme. I am lucky enough to have some sponsors to help me on my way ( who want to see the back of me). I have carefully selected a few businesses that supply products that i can both use and review that will make my journey an easier more comfortable one. If it is ok with you lot I will be plugging their wares on this page. It will help me finance my travels and allow me to report straight back to you. Not your average travel blog but something with a twist and a story.

'Yes I want to be kept updated' or 'No, My Life is perfect without you'
