Visit Klenske, Ink. It may have took us a bit longer to get here then expected, but we made it, just the next day. We flew out of Dubuque fine, but once we boarded our plane in Chicago, and sat there on the runway for two hours, we were told that it ...

Nothing much to write about today.  Narita airport is around 90 minutes from Shinjuku station so by the time you add in the train from our hotel to Shinjuku time to get tickets etc, we had to get up at 6:30am for our flight at noon! The flight was ...

Here are our answers to some of the many questions we've been asked since our return to the UK – many 'best of' / 'worst of' questions, some techie kit questions, some just downright cheeky! It's been fun reflecting back over our travels, so thank ...

So we seem to be getting there.  The flat is efficiently almost empty with a whole 2.5 weeks until we leave.... It's good from an organisational perspective although quite depressing that I have no good clothes to wear until then!! Still have 3 Muse ...

"You know why they put oxygen masks on planes? Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles ...

It's weird, you know. Less than three weeks to go before we set off on a journey that could take years. The amount of things there are to do is astounding. I've got to somehow move out of my flat, store my possessions I don't want to throw away at my ...

Our one and only rest day - and did we pick it?! Breakfast is not booked until 9.30am so we get a lie in. Outside, light rain is falling. It will continue to rain on and off all day and quite heavily overnight. But we don't care, because we are just ...

…You never hear about people cycle-touring in England is because it supremely sucks! The last few days have reminded me of the first few days of touring through the Peak District.  I was struggling and pushing all the time.  However, now ...

Why Not Fly?

A travel blog entry by foolsgold

This is a top pick!

It's not going to be cheap to do it this way round. Especially when you consider that a round the world flight can be as cheap as 650 these days. And it's not, as many people suspect, that we're scared of flying. Quite the opposite. In fact, I get ...

I spent most of the week slaving, that's right whip crack, at my Nan's house, doing some decorating for her. Had a great time, and I don't think I could have a better employer. Turned up with a hangover one morning, and she said, don't worry about it go ...
