Literally.   There’s some really awesome motivational photos on Pinterest and Instagram showing someone with a backpack standing atop a mountain, overlooking a lake and just looking motivational in general.   If you’ve ever climbed up a mountain you’ll know that by the time you reach the top you’ll be out of breath, sweaty and laying on the ground.

When I remember back to when I first started blogging, I told myself I wouldn’t venture into list based articles, because some pretentious, puritan and wankerish part of my brain told me that’s what I needed to do to “not sell out”. I was wrong. Ask my girlfriend, and she’ll tell you that it’s a miracle to hear those words from me.

How to Go From Being Broke to Full Time Traveller in Less Than 8 Weeks

How to Become a World Traveller in 5 Easy(ish) Steps   Why I failed to start travelling   Before becoming a “long term traveller”, I had been to many destinations across Asia, the Pacific and had explored most of my home country Australia. Despite all this, I had somehow still not managed to become a long term traveller as none of these trips had been in succession, but were rather all individual trips and holidays.

How I lost 18kg (40lb) in Two Days and Barely Avoided Death

Several years ago I had the experience of losing 18kgs in under two days and completely destroying my microbiotal (gut) health over the following 10 months. This is where travel meets health.
