The Original Concept
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Well hello there, We are Ben and Peta and obviously you have found our travel blog. Now you may wonder exactly why we decided to start writing a blog what makes our travel that much more interesting than anyone elses? The truth is, possibly not much, there are thousands of people out there who have a passion for travel and for me, its about passing on experiences and knowledge to both adventurers and armchair travellers alike. A chance to whet your appetite to the exciting and new, and sometimes not so new places around the world.
Now the next question you may ask what’s with the title?
Well we have this tendency to travel to places that aren’t quite the tourist norm. A Russian Missile Silo, A Crypt in Romania or even a visit to Chernobyl.
Our parents obviously watch way too much “Banged Up Abroad” because the minute we start making copies of our passports they get all hot under the collar.
To us we work to travel, we work to explore and we work damn hard so we can adventure pretty hard too … however no real backpacking for us, oh no, we are a couple of very average individuals who are facinated with the world and want to experience everything one day at a time!
