Between Chirtsmas and New Year we had a few days off so decided to do our first Scottish trip and head into the highlands. We had a friend from London staying for the week so we hired a car and headed West to Oban, a cute little storey book town on the West Coast of [...]
A few years ago Britt and I were playing "Articulate" ... the fast talking-partner-word-guess game. Britts topic was Geography (not her fave) and the country was Portugal. Now, how does one describe the country Portugal? It wen't something like this... Britt: two parts. The first part is the first word of our hometown (which is [...]
Why did the Turkey Cross the Road?

NICARAGUA. NAILING IT.
It be a pirate life for us-Sailing San Blas to Red Frog
(Read in Pirate voice) What's a Pirates favourite letter of the Alphabet? (you answer "RRRRRR") You think it would be RRRR but it be the CCCCC Okay, so that was awful. Lets continue. The Darien Gap- quite possibly the most intense, dangerous stretches of land in the world. This area is a forbidding mountainous jungle [...]
Your parents warned you about Colombia
