Hidden Gems of Boston: Stuck in time, in a 3 storey map.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

There are several hidden gems in Boston and I’m positive that this list is not all of them.  This is a just select few that I found, with a little bit of help from a local. The Mapparium, located in the the Mary Eddy Baker Library. This 3 storey stained-glass globe in viewed from the inside on a 9.1m bridge. It was completed in 1935 based on the Rand Mcnally political map from 1934. Since then it has been opened up for debate to update this globe, each time it was put off. Standing in the centre of the Mapparium, […]

Can you explore Central Dublin in 15 hours?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

In November 2017, I booked a flights between the United Kingdom and Boston. Now in order to make it as cheap as possible, I choose to fly with hand luggage only and went from the cheapest destination I could find. This was a slight problem. as it In order to get the cheapest possible flight from the United Kingdom to America, worked out to fly to Ireland first and then onwards to America. It makes no sense really, but if that was the cheapest then I would do it. Doing  this left me in Dublin with a 18 hour layover. […]

These are just a hand picked few experiences in places that blow me away with awe, horror and amazement, among some other emotions. 1. Machu Picchu, Peru Machu Picchu has been on […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Adventure, Travel

Escapade escapade ˈɛskəpeɪd,ˌɛskəˈpeɪd noun an act or incident involving excitement, daring, or adventure. “he told of their escapade with a ‘borrowed’ truck” The planning stage – What’s this? Well this one is easy, we didn’t plan anything, the ferry, the route absolutely nothing! Well that’s not strictly true the plan was to help a friend from the Mongol Rally move house from Lisbon to Amsterdam. Apart from this nothing was planned not even a ferry crossing, where we would be staying, nothing! This trip was in fact so spontaneous that I called my ‘boss’ up Saturday morning and told him I […]

The RGS Explore 2015, in the Royal Geographical Society London. A weekend of workshops, lectures  and meeting fellow adventurers and scientists. I had the pleasure of meeting the man who first inspired me to explore. Nicholas Crane’s Map Man series is what I like to call the start of my adventurous spirit and for me starting to collect maps. The 2 seasons follow Nic, as he follows the maps that changed the way in which we see Britain. Explore! I highly recommend RGS Explore 2015 to anyone who what’s to go an expedition, adventure, scientific research or all three! The weekend […]

On a biking adventure… from scratch

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

There is no better feeling of freedom than taking a motorcycle and just riding, it doesn’t matter were you are going, it’s exhilarating. It’s the dream of many people to travel the world on 2 wheels, I am one of  those people. To take on such an adventure the general consensus is that of a bike like Euan Mcgregor’s BMW 1200 GS, with all it’s gizmo’s and gadgets. A quick search shows that a second hand one is going to set you back £3,000, plus visas, insurance, gear. Now for many students this way out of their budget let alone having a license to […]
