It’s not every day you get offered a trip to New Zealand, so I was pretty darn excited when I got the news that I’d be trotting off to see our Commonwealth chums. Then I thought about it a bit more and realised I’d only actually have 7 days on the ground. I was a wee bit disappointed – there was obviously no way I’d get to see much. All those experiences I talk about to people heading off to do their working holiday visas, there was no chance I’d even be able to cram half of them in.

Incredible landscapes, stunning city views, poignant history, adrenalin activities galore and sparkling modern culture – South Africa has it all in abundance. I had the pleasure of exploring the famous Garden Route for 10 days from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth– and what a pleasure it was!
The impressive Garden Route
With talk turning to cycling this week, as thousands line the streets from Leeds to Paris to see who’ll be crowned champion of a certain bicycle race, we thought we’d take a closer look at one of our own epic cycling trips. Right now there’s £100 off all our cycling tours worldwide, but we won’t cover them all today – you’re busy people. Let’s put the spotlight on just one: Cycle Burma!
When you think of Burma (also known as Myanmar), your mind might turn to its troubled history and political unrest rather than cycling holidays and sightseeing. But this beautiful Asian state, still relatively free of western influence, is a fascinating place to visit and makes for an incredible, stunning setting for a two-wheeled trek.

Over the past few years I have seen and explored more than my fair share of America and my state count is getting closer to completion, “from California to New York Island”!
If, like me (and my pal Johnny Cash), you’ve ventured far and wide throughout the States and been ‘everywhere’, you may think another America trip will just consist of returning to the same awesome places you’ve been before. However, if you’re looking for an All American experience that goes a little deeper, or even if you’ve never ventured to the States and want a trip that’s a little difference, then I have a few recommendations and tips from my most recent trip in May that could help you out.

With the plucky Costa Rican football team fighting their way into the last 8 of a certain, rather important football tournament right now, we thought we’d share the top 8 adrenaline pumping activities from this passionate Central American hideaway. Nestled between Panama and Nicaragua, the lush paradise has long been a popular destination for adventurous types, packed full of activities amid stunning scenery. With its modern infrastructure, perfect climate and super friendly locals (ticos), it’s fast becoming one of the most popular getaways for heart racing trips. Oh, and lets not forget that it has sloths too.
