Bag a window seat on the flight from Santiago to Calama, for unparalleled views of both the Andes and the Atacama desert. It's like landing on Mars!

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Explore Myanmar
  • Take the Trans-Mongolian Express from China to Russia, stopping en route to ride in Mongolia
  • Trekking in Bhutan
  • Relax on Mozambique's beautiful beaches

Best Moments

  • Eating ceviche in Jose Ignacio - Uruguay's hippest beach hangout - and watching the world go by
  • Estancia life: morning rides with the gaucho followed by a traditional Argentine asado (BBQ)
  • Fishing for piranhas in the Peruvian Amazon
  • Riding in the Atacama desert
  • Reaching the top of Adam's Peak in Sri Lanka in time for sunrise

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Travelling on my own in India - it's always much more amusing in company!

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Arriving into an Albanian town at night, to find no hotels or hostels open for business. We ended up sleeping on someone's tiny kitchen sofa, and awoke at dawn the following morning to the whole family gossiping and cooking breakfast.
