Guest Post: Essential Cooking Gear for Motorbiking Backpackers

About five years ago, I met a pair of (non-hairy) bikers in my local bar. After finding out they were touring the UK, I asked them how they were finding the food whilst on the road. “Are you sick of Pot Noodles?” I asked sympathetically, searching their faces for traces of malnutrition. “How do you feel about eating biscuits at every meal?” The first mistake that non-bikers always make is assuming travelling bikers lack heat, comfort,... Read More

Bali by Motorbike: The Route

We arrived in Bali with a week to take in the sights & sounds of this world renowned island. We’d usually spend longer exploring such a distinguished destination, but WORK limited us to a weekend to weekend trip (BOO!). We decided the best way to tackle Bali was by motorbike, giving us complete freedom & ease to move around. Bali is more expensive than other South East Asian destinations, so we were on the lookout for Bali deals. Here... Read More

The Big Move to Saigon

According to our family and friends we have…  1. Lost Our Minds. 2. Acting a Fool. 3. Raising the Bar. ………. “Why Not?” Our wonderful year in Korea came to an end, our bank accounts were feeling our big trip through India and Nepal, and we had no choice but once again give into the whole working thing.
