It's already been an awesome year since leaving school. In six months I've driven around Iceland in a campervan with my brother, visited New York, Chamonix and Spain with my family and spent a fantastic if tiring week at my former swimming club's training camp at Pontins - this time as a coach. I've taken up underwater hockey, been placed at a US summer camp in Massachussetts this Summer to teach swimming but I'm about to leave on the biggest adventure of the lot.

Since leaving school I have worked "the season" at Fantastic Fireworks for over 4 months and continued to work at Darcy's restaurant during the busy Christmas season in order to get the money together for a big trip.

Over the next 103 days I will be travelling with Lotte around the World. First stop Cape Town, from where we will make our way up through Namibia and Botswana to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe on a 3-week overland camping safari. After this we will travel onto Australia and New Zealand, and then onto South America to see Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Argentina and Brazil. That's the plan anyway.

My aim is to try and update this blog frequently to keep you up to date with where we are, what we've done and how it has been. With a bit of luck I'll be able to put up some pictures and you can also leave comments for us to pick up when I next log on.

If you want to know when we've updated this site then you can subscribe to get email updates by clicking the link on the left.

I hope you enjoy reading about our adventure.

Damn You!
Sam, you continue to have adventures that make Cat and I jealous, not to mention make our blog look tame. Ah well, I'm glad you're having fun anyway. Are you/when are you heading to Melbourne? We're arriving there on the 27th if there's any chance of a meet up...

Love and kisses,
Joey Joe Joe and Cat
