My Travel Stories

If you’ve been around for a little while or you know me personally, you will have definitely heard about that time I patted a wild whale! You might also have heard about that time I got my boobs fondled by a woman in Ethiopia and maybe also heard the story of Rosario and Bruce from the Camino. These posts are my personal travel stories.

Travel is more than where to stay in El Nido or what to eat in Uganda (ROLEX!!!) – it is the experiences that move you to keep going, keep learning and keep Charging The Globe.
