Having applied for a credit card nearly three weeks ago and having heard no response, I decided today to ring up and find out what is going on with it. Turns out it was declined because I don't have a job. When I sat in the office with BEN from Norwich Co-Op Bank the entire conversation was centred around the fact I am getting a credit card for the sakes of travelling and that I would not have a job. That's why I wanted a card. He said it wouldn't be an issue. BEN is such a liar. Can't say I am massively upset but I do now feel like the 50 minutes I spent looking at his plasticine, well-coiffured head was wasted.

My partner and I have been travelling since early Dec 2014, so far having been through North India, Nepal, and the West Coast of the USA; now we will travel by land down through Mexico and Central America before heading into South America. This blog will attempt to capture as much of the planning, travel, and aftermath of adventure as possible.
(The photo is from slightly less epic 25 mile journey to the Norfolk coast. We are sad. I hope this big journey will make us happy again.)... full info
