When people ask me why we travel, my usual response is to say - "Because, when I'm travelling, I really know that I'm alive". My wife is more likely to say that it's because she hates cooking and can eat out every day but the simple fact is... we love to travel. The experience is usually so intense that every detail becomes indelibly etched in our memories. I might not be able to remember what I did on any given day at work last year but I can still clearly remember the events of our first trip to India in 1994 - almost as if it only happened 6 months ago.
That year saw us undertake our first ever year-long trip away. It was meant to be the 'trip of a lifetime' - to get it all out of our systems and be done with it but it didn't work. Since then, we've done 2 other Long Trips, the last one (which you can read about here) spanning 18 months and 12 different countries... and it's still not out of our system.
Far from it. We still feel that there's a lot to see and do... and we hope that perhaps you'll join us, just now and again, as we continue to explore and write about this wonderful world of ours.
