Most Memorable Travel Experience
* Building and opening a library for a Tanzania school with 14 teenage girls from the school I work at in London - a project that was two years in the making!

* Teaching a class of 60 Ugandan school kids to sing 'Yellow Submarine'

* Hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, Turkey

* Rescuing a baby's milk bottle from a crocodile-infested lake in Australia's Kakadu National Park

* Sleeping under the stars of India's Great Thar Desert...and getting thrown off a camel enroute!

* Making it to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro

* Machu Picchu - simply the most magnificent ruin I have ever seen

* Eating at a North Korean restaurant in Ulaanbaatar!

* Auschwitz-Birkenau
Joined in 2008, but life got in the way of travelling for a while and I only started being a regular on here in the latter half of 2013!

I'm fortunate enough to be fairly well traveled, having set foot in every continent bar Antarctica. I aim to travel overseas at least twice a year, and am gradually working my way down the old bucket list...

You can read more about my travels at my website: Thanks :-)

No worries Joe, it was my pleasure! :)

Thank you, Joe. Well, almost have Ecuador assembled...but between enjoying that adventure and the holidays, looks like PNG will only get serious attention come January...but should be the focus then!
