I’ve Chucked my Backpack into Narnia…for now

Give me a moment to brag about my 2017. I’m not going to go hugely into detail; I’ve written at length about the beautiful things I have seen/done/witnessed/eaten like the backpack wanker I am. This is more about how I feel as a result, and how bloody lucky I am as a person of this world, […]

Sweaty Betty does Cambodia

There was a time when I was once backpacking around Thailand, I was deep in a market that was so large it had a map to get around it, the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day: and I was absolutely drenched. I looked like someone had poured a bottle of water over […]

A Melons Marathon in Singapore

*Not an actual marathon, don’t be ridiculous. So after being kicked out of Australia (because Malcolm basically doesn’t like me, don’t hate me cause you ain’t me) I ventured fourth to Singapore.

An Overactive Imagination, an Overdraft and Ovaries

Does anyone have a crystal ball I can borrow? An official and certified future teller extraordinaire, such as Derick Acorah, Cilla Black or Jesus in a glassy ball? One of the Mystic Meg variety that is going to tell me exactly what is going to happen in the future, on a daily if not hourly basis? […]
