I bloody loved my month in Burma. It stole my heart and broke it at the same time, but I am aware that I could be in danger of falling into the trap that many other travelling folk do – making out that my time in a country that I loved was all skippy-in-the-daisy-fields, oh-so [...]
On November 20th, 2010 – Man took on a clock counting down from one year – with the aim to leave England, debt-free of £16, 000 and to fly on a one-way ticket to an indefinite adventure around the world, before the clock ticked down to zero. On November 13th, 2011 – Man beat the [...]
On Thursday I will turn 29 years old. One year closer to the age that many people from my generation dread. Not me – I’m a lover of life, I LOVE my birthday and I consider it the most important day in the calendar. New Years Eve? A reminder of personal heartache and half-arsed promises [...]

Most countries that you visit usually follow the same pattern; book a flight, maybe apply for a VISA if there’s not an on-entry option, pack your bags, update your Facebook status to make your friends hate you with envy, then skip along to the airport for your trip on that special day. Not Burma, she’s [...]
I successfully completed my latest Man Vs Clock challenge, travelling through Burma with no guide book or internet help of any kind.
