My many short trips
The life of 9 month backpacking trips appears to be somewhat over and so instead I shall be focusing on 3 week holidays. Trips as diverse as India, Cuba, Patagonia and Kenya/Tanzania are detailed here along with a week in Norway hunting the Northern Lights and in the next few years I hope to visit Tibet and Antarctica amongst others.
