HOSTEL REVIEW – Picanteria El Paso – Ayampe, Ecuador

After two and a half weeks of basically non-stop fiesta in Montañita (with a side of Spanish Classes), I needed to find a recovery zone that was quiet, completely devoid of crowds, and with some good surf to boot.

So What’s The Plan for Backpacking South America?!

It’s just over 4 weeks now that I’m flying to South America and I’ve been rather annoying in the fact I haven’t really told you much about it – other than a rather self absorbed post about what I’’ve given up to go there. A quick word to the wise though – don’t make the …

2012 Backpacking Adventure…BOOKED & PAID FOR!

It’s September – which means summer is all but gone (well actually did it really actually start properly?!) and winter is starting to envelop the UK.

Saturday Showcase – Bitten By The Travel Bug

Last weeks Saturday Showcase saw the Bevster (or Beverley from Pack Your Passport as she’s more commonly known!) nominate Nicole for a good old emailing interview grilling – she’s been on my twitter feed for a while now so it was nice to properly catch up with her… So Nicole – introduce yourself, who are …
