Over a glass of wine a few months back my wife and I sat reminiscing about all the far-flung place we’ve visited over the years — and once we started everything came flooding back. Things we had completely forgotten about popped into our heads from nowhere. We sat here laughing to ourselves at the ridiculous things that had happened, the crazy situations we found ourselves in and the amazing people that we met.
We’ve been on some amazing journeys and with them come some incredible stories and memories to match, most of which now only live on in our heads. The problem is, as time passes, we start to forget. So we’ve decided to start this new blog and fill it up in retrospect, with photos, videos, diaries and memories of old, before they are lost forever to old age.
It’s early days, but there are already a smattering of stories from various moments over the years. If you fancy reading about what went in to cycling from London to Paris; where our love of Nepalese Momos came from; or our encounter with a miniature badly driven police car, then please hang around.
And there’s so much more still to come. I rarely exaggerate, but if you’re interested in reading about my night with an alligator sized gecko in Cambodia, stay tuned. Or how about tales of us drinking “special” tea in India; accidentally setting fire to a restaurant in Edinburgh; being offered hookers and heroin in Turkmenistan; or ducking under the border fence into Russia for an illegal money exchange while a soldier pointed his Kalashnikov at us.
Think all this sounds too bizarre? Welcome to Our Adventurous World!
