    Hi. I’m doing another article on kit this week. I don’t know why all I seem to want to write about is kit and my favourite food in other countries… I thought this week I would write an article about taking a Tupperware box abroad with you at the bottom of your backpack. Maybe your thinking, “a whole article about an empty plastic box? How are you going to stretch this …

    I visited Ghana when I was 16. We spent most of our time in a southern village called Amanfro so we had a good opportunity to sample traditional foods and even got a chance to help in the preparation!

    A rubbish truck approaches, full to the brim of unwanted, unused, foul and stinking trash. It begins to arch its load, preparing for tonnes of garbage to come crashing down on the heap left from its last visit.

    As I’m writing this, I’m suffering from an acute case of insomnia and jet lag or what I would more lovingly call as an I-cannot-get-back-to-normal feeling. Having been back from Mombassa now for the best part of a week, I’m still trying to recover from being whipped by the aggressive Kenyan winds, having a face to face encounter with a lioness – in front of her newly killed prey and …

    So I figured for this blog I would start writing about books. For me reading and travelling compliment each other really well and I know a lot people feel the same.  But saying that they have to be the right kind of books! I tried reading loads of Charles Dickens in South America. Everyone loves a bit of Charlie D, but reading about smokey Victorian London in …
