Paddling the Nile
The first ever paddle down the Blue Nile from source to sea. 5,000km through wild rapids, war zones, crocodile and hippo infested waters, disease, terrorists, guns, arrests; the works...
Newly married amongst the neon glow and dumpling vendors as we bumble our way trying to figure out the world's most populous nation at this exciting time in it's history...
The Great Canadian Bike Trek
23 years old and naive, I set off in the middle of Canada's barbaric winter perched on a woolskin seat-cover peddling solo from one side of Canada to the other...
Here are a few snaps of my beloved hometown Wellington, New Zealand. I'm probably slightly biased, but I think it's pretty nice. The breathtaking harbour is framed with steep, bush-clad hills covered with clusters of Victorian cottages clinging on for the best views. A web of narrow streets wind their way up and down the hills, each route with its own character.
Wellingtonians are a passionate and creative bunch, priding themselves on their city; their arts, their culture and food - it's wedged between many of the country's renowned vineyards and serves up some of the best spreads I've had anywhere.
Wellington weather is sometimes wild, but never boring. With the ocean, the bush and the landscapes you get a raw sense of being amongst the elements. It will never be as big as New York, but what it lacks in size, it makes up in heart.
