If you’re off on a big trip, doing a fund-raising ultramarathon, have relevant stuff for sale, want to share a link, are looking for an expedition partner, or anything else you think might be relevant, then this is the place to shareit. Added to that I toss in any interesting links I’ve come across recently.

The Toughest Part of Travel is Deciding to Go When asked how can I afford to travel so much, I feel like retorting with: how can you afford your rent? To keep a dog? To have children? To smoke? When I travel, I have no rent to pay, no dog to feed, no kids to look after or cigarette companies to support, so 100% of the money I have can go on travel. Keeping to a budget of $15 a day is fairly easy if you're CouchSurfing (free), eating street food ($2 a meal) and travelling on the chicken bus ($10 per 100 miles). That's just $5500 a year -- less than a typical British cigarette smoker will spend on ciggies over the same period and much, much less than the rent on a flat in London or the cost of bringing up children....

  1. Hi Al,

    Re:Commonplace book, I’ve been keeping one for about 12 years now and always provides entertainment when reading back my attempts at angst ridden poetry and is interesting to see how you have changed as a person through the years…

    I’m using something called Evernote now to copy information for review from websites, documents and pictures/video which then gets condensed into my book. It’s very handy and works on anything with t’internet connection including the ubiquitous iphone.

    Cheers,

    Andy
