Travelling Cheap: Accommodation

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Preparation Thoughts

Accommodation Accommodation, transport and visas, are some of the most expensive costs when travelling, as travellers we are always counting money to try and get the cheapest deals on all of the above. In this section we are looking in to cheap accommodation around Europe in particular but generally at ways of finding cheap places to stay where ever in the world you may be travelling. Camping Camping is by far one of the cheapest accommodation options as it’s usually FREE if you are wild camping or there may be a small charge which can differ depending where you are. […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Preparation Thoughts

So I found this interesting article on mental health whilst searching in the bottomless pit that is the internet. This article was found and written on Getupandgo’s blog, an Adventure Travel company based in India. Most of the things that mention in this post I know can relate to especially on the Mongol Rally. What do you think? Leave a comment below. LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND It doesn’t happen when you start packing, or when you stay up half the night before your trip trying to answer emails and take out the trash. But once you board the plane, train […]

Dartmoor Walking Festival

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Adventure, Uncategorized

As a Walking Group Leader and Dartmoor Guide I’ve been out on Dartmoor quite a lot along with hundreds of thousands of others, it’s a big place after all. It occurred to me earlier this year that Dartmoor has no walking festival which is a shame, considering the vast treks and paths, history and archaeology. Well for 2016 that’s changed: introducing the first Dartmoor Walking Festival! The festival is being organised by myself and Simon Dell the owner of Moorland Guides. We have had a pretty busy leading up this point, but we nearly have everything covered. I say everything we […]

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 […]

Coast to the Moor

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Adventure

The Mongol Rally is finished, I spent 10 weeks sat in a car driving 17,000 miles across the world and what a trip it was, but, now it is time to look to other adventures and for some things that I have in mind I need to be fit… So being an adventurer what better why than to say walk from the Coast to the most isolated town on Dartmoor, Princetown.

Inter Railing a great way to travel around Europe, it is also a great as a first time medium term travelling option. Ideal for students and young people under the age of 25 after that well I would recommend another type of transport maybe horseback would be good. I would like to explain first of all that is just an account of what I discovered in the cities that I visited on my Inter Rail. There are many other ways to get cheaper to places. Travelling out of the UK: Ok, first and foremost after you have decided on which […]
