Welcome. I don’t use this much blog anymore, but there is still some good content here from back in the day, and I still travel a lot. Now though I just share on my Facebook and Youtube channels and then share that content here.

Pyramids, Pot and Porn, A tour through Egypt

This blog has been going for less than a year now, and believe it or not, previous to its existence I had done a fair bit of traveling already. Every now and again I have a look at past photos and reminisce, of course I

Happy Birthday Sarah Jane

About 2013 years ago, somewhere between Sunday and Saturday, in a manger somewhere in the middle east, a child was born. He walked on water, healed some people, drank a lot of wine, and partied like it was 0000, then went to heaven, all before

27 march 2015, My Doomsday Prediction

I woke up this morning filled with disappointment, it is the 22nd, and Doomsday has not arrived. To say I feel let down is an understatement, instead of looking out the window and seeing an ash covered sky, fires raging and people screaming in the

Long term travel gear, but more interesting.

“What?! Not another Travel Gear post!” I hear you shout. “Whoaaa, hold on just a second there matey!” I reply in a somewhat condescending tone, “Yeah sure, it has been done before, but not by me!” You’re probably pondering what I could possibly write to

Christmas lunch with the older generation

By a round-a-bout set of circumstances, I found myself having Christmas lunch with about two dozen people, all between the age of sixty and ninety. My initial reaction to being invited to the event, was one of uncertain uneasiness, not because of the age group,

Memories or moments

I without a doubt have a wealth of memories to choose from, 32 years worth in fact. Although a large number of those are heavily dulled through abuse or the tyranny of ages, I still have some solid foundations with which to build my world

My most popular post is, drum roll please…

…”Please don’t touch my testicles again, massage gone wrong“ When writing and titling the post, I thought,now there is a catchy name, one that will stand up and make people pay attention (pun intended), what I did not foresee, somewhat short sightedly, was that this would

London, like coming home, but not

It is around 1 degree Celsius outside, the sun is yet to show itself despite being seven thirty in the morning, and my Qantas pajamas are having a hard time keeping the cold at bay. Sure there are heaters in the house, and they do a pretty good job, but

Mexico City, not so dangerous

As I write this I am sitting in Fortworth/Dallas Airport, in my Khaki “posh clothes”, and after a few days here I am most assuredly pining for Mexico, yeah the food here is great (even if the giant rack of ribs I ate last night

Palenque, Jungle Ruins and Waterfalls

Mexico is like a litter box of Mayan ruins. Despite the best efforts of the Spanish to knock down and pave over some of the greatest cities and cultures in the world (not knocking ’em, I wouldn’t have a comfy room to stay in or nice roads

Scootering around San Cristobal, Chiapas

Winding around the mountain top roads, frigid air blowing up my shorts and causing my jaw to lock into position while Sarah clung to my back like a scene out of Dumb and Dumber. I was forced to accept that the sunny beaches of Playa

Travel Blogs and Web design

Well it’s finally done, I am Launching the new Tell Them I Said Something! After designing Sarah’s site and being quite happy with the result, I became somewhat disillusioned at the ugliness that was my previous blog. In an attempt to make a design site and blog

How old is The Universe? And how do we know?

So how old is the Universe, the playground of our existence? Just a small portion of the hundreds of billions of galaxies littering the universe, containing a few 100 billion stars each The answer can be quite controversial, and depends heavily on what model of the

Science, for people who can’t be bothered

I have expressed in previous posts my love of learning, and in particular an enjoyment of science, something which was unfortunately completely absent in my school years. As an adult, and an aging one, my desire to know what makes things things, has developed into

Neck Injuries, Cenotes and Beaches

So at first glance you might expect that I had received a neck injury at one of the thousands of Cenotes (fresh water limestone holes) spread across Mexico, in fact the only thing these two have in common is that they both happened to me. One of

Tulum, Diving, and Silky Smooth Skin

In the last couple weeks, we haven’t done a hell of a lot of sightseeing, we have done a few of the things you would expect when on “holiday” (diving, eating and such), but long term travel means the things you do (well, the things

Spanish lessons, or, why I dropped out of school

I consider myself a fairly intellectual person (someone has to), and had always put my early retirement from school down to just not wanting to be there. Similarly I had put my inability to excel at school down to just not being interested. I still

Viva La Mexico!

We have been in Mexico for about a week now, and what a week it has been. This is definitely my new favourite place. Getting off the plane in Cancun you are immediately aware of being in a tropical Paradiso, something about the flora and

Texas, like living in a movie

I love Texas! And if I get the opportunity to see the rest of the U.S. , I am sure I will love it equally, it is not an exageration to say that Texas is one of my favourite places. I have been to exotic

Why you shouldn’t Travel

To buy, or not to buy So you might be thinking, this is an odd title for a travel blog, and even more so from a guy who gave up his old life and everything that came with it, to put on a backpack, and

Back in Perth

It is a strange feeling returning to Perth. We have only been gone for 6 or 7 months, and our return will only be a few weeks long at most, but it still has a feeling of finality. Almost like coming back from a short

Going to the Dentist in Thailand

Years ago my mum needed extensive dental work, in the U.K., like in most Western countries the dentist costs a fortune. As such, we briefly looked into going over to Thailand to get the same dental work done at a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately
