What more can you tell us about your blog? What are your goals or intentions for it?
I’d be interested in speaking to an interested publisher to make a book or two…I have some ideas.. After the USA, I’m contemplating a type of travel journalism..
Can you provide us with a Throw Back Thursday picture of one of your favorite travel memories with an explanation?
My memory would be many camping moments, across the USA, alone. No one likes a shock, so I rarely wore my birthday suit and that lake was barely above freezing, but being lost in nature was one of reasons I travelled across the states. This was my way of scaring off the bears..
Which are your favorite and least favorite cities you’ve traveled to? Why?
I have avoided cities on this trip, but when I’m in a city, I want art, live music, friendly people and amazing, but maybe slightly unusual, food. My favourite cities have some of the best of those things and I found welcoming vibes in the more offbeat places, away from the tourist strips…Prague, Paris, HongKong, Bangkok, New Orleans and London.
Every city has its downsides.
What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? Where?
I literally will eat anything unusual on a menu, and have devoured some “less available” foods that we might not be used to on our continent, but I genuinely think the weirdest things I have tried have been in the USA. Cheese in a can? Beef jerky cant really claim to be beef….it’s like chewing into plastic, the amount of sugar in things is scary and some of the meat products are really worrying..
I love to put octopus in my mouth, but I want to know its an octopus..
I tried many bugs in Thailand and they were really tasty. Intestine was also good in Sicily, as was the frilly bits and the feet of chicken. Eel is awesome and so is Guinea pig.
Who are your travel idols?
I wouldn’t say travel idols, but I enjoy Ray Mears and David Attenborough. I also like the chef, Rick Stein’s food travels.
What’s your best travel tip?
the difference between an ordeal, and an adventure, is just attitude.
…and don’t make a guidebook your first point of call.
Which is your favorite post you’ve written? Please provide a link.
What advice would you give to someone new to travel blogging?
don’t…it’s a nightmare trying to write while you’re enjoying an adventure!
