Location: Brighton, England
My first visit to Brighton was everything that I had imagined the English seaside to be. Despite it being July and approaching the peak of summer I was dressed for a wintery day, in long pants and a jacket. The combination of the gray sky, drizzling rain, and the extremely blustery conditions, as well as the fact that it was a weekday, made the seafront look rather forlorn and desolate. Down on the beach, the solitary form of a lifeguard huddled in his shelter was the only object that broke up the landscape of larger, palm-sized pebbles.
Eire of the Dog
Location: Republic of Ireland
Ok, despite spending two weeks traveling around Ireland, I cannot recall one memorable meal that I had. Don’t get me wrong, I had an amazing two weeks – it is just that for once, none of my memories were associated with food.
The Highs and Lows of Bush Camping
Location: Eastern Africa
One of my first adult travel experiences was when I traveled overland through East Africa, from Nairobi in Kenya, to Harare in Zimbabwe. I chose East Africa as a destination because at the time I had only a little money, but even with my meager savings I could still afford a ten week overland safari.
