Hello! Thanks for visiting! This site is here to document my travels as I backpack across the world. My journey, as far as I can predict, puts me back in Europe in July 2018 to participate in a unique race, beginning in the UK, across 10,000 miles, in to Mongolia. Known only to a small audience of vagabonds and adventurists across the world, The Mongol Rally appears to be a true adventure. There are few rules, little guidance, and no support as you look to navigate to the end zone in your beater of a car. Stopping frequently along the way, because you broke down again, or to indulge whatever desires and bad decisions your impulses lead you to. Assuming I make it through the rally with no dismemberment or tragedy, I’ll be working my way down from Northern Mongolia in to Asia for the foreseeable future, hoping to catch my breath, and relax a bit. That’s 2018 in a nutshell. Find me on whatever various social media you prefer! I hope you’ll find this site to offer some invaluable travel tips, unique perspectives, and entertainment.

If you're thinking of going to The Philippines, El Nido is a must do. This small beach front town has a lot to offer. The town is nested in a small cove, and just around the corner it opens up in to some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever laid eyes on. This article will cover getting to El Nido, and all the things you will want to know upon arrival. The five days I spent here were my favorite of my time in The Philippines.
Things to do, and things to avoid, while on the tourist hot spot island of Boracay. I can only say so much about what I did, but there are a lot of things I didn't do. Boracay is definitely worth going to, but it is expensive. Don't get me wrong, you can do it cheap-ish, but where's the fun in that? I'll jump from topic to topic, and hopefully by the end of this article you'll have a better idea on how you want to live it up, or not, in Boracay.
There's a reason why Boracay is the hottest tourist spot in The Philippines. Its got almost everything you could want, all in such a small radius. Did you want to experience amazing beaches, check. What about vibrant nightlife, check. Picturesque scenery, check. Hell, even if you wanted be served ice cream while out in the middle of the ocean, Boracay has you covered. I've got all the information you need to get there, and a few pictures to ignite your desire.
I've been told there are many things to do in Daecheon, and the area was certainly beautiful. I enjoyed my time, and will probably make it back before my time here in Korea is up. If you need to know how to get to MudFest from Osan AB, click here! I spent Friday and part of Saturday afternoon in Daecheon at MudFest. From this time I have some pointers to help you do it better.
  You've made the right choice. You decided to participate in one of Korea's biggest festivals, Mudfest! Now, all the helpful sites are in Korean, and you can't figure out how the hell you get there. Having ran in to this same issue myself, I decided to write a quick article to help ease your troubles.
I wrote this article to show one of the most common pitfalls we make when the topic of travel planning arises. Granted, it is not a new subject. This knowledge has been around for a while from what I can tell, and it's something I want people to be aware of.
