We've all been lied to! A complete atrocity really seeing as they deserve so much more. If you read the news and most of western media you will have been conditioned to think that Pakistan is a place that is far too dangerous to visit. This is simply not true. I'm currently sitting in my room, having had an...
For most, death is a concept so dark and daunting that we often push it to the catacombs of our minds. We pass the duty of care to a funeral home and see only our recently deceased in all their glory, dressed in their best! Sitting proudly in a fruit basket like coffin so they can be remembered in the...
Imagine a life of nothing but hashish, potato and the odd cup of tea. An impossible feat for most of us but in the spiritual land of India, it's not uncommon to stumble across incredibly devout individuals who do more and more insane undertakings to convey they complete devotion. Some have opted for raising their hand for the rest of...
Having the right gear on you makes travelling all that much easier. I struggle to see how people travelled around before using a smartphone. People had to use real maps and figure stuff out using intuition...imagine that. Truth be told, you can travel without any of the stuff here but the experience is straightforward when you have them.

Holiday destinations don't come with more surprises than most locations in the Middle East but Iran is definitely the most entertaining of them all. Mainly due in part to the wild intrigue that your presence alone can strike in the people you meet. You see, not many tourists visit Iran and those that do tend to stick to what...
I'm a complete cheapskate but I thrive on something different. So instead of hostels, hotels, home stays and Air BnB, I go for Couchsurfing, home swaps and sometimes even 24 hour bath houses but in Japan, some of these options just seemed so difficult. Couchsurfers only wanted females or weren't available and despite having a billion 5* quality references,...
In light of all the recent media attention (Daily Mail, 9 News Australia, Irish Independent) we have received from our article about visiting the frontline in Iraq, we have decided to try and use some of that attention for good. We have 48 hours to raise funds to buy some essential supplies in shortage here in the refugee camps for...
I'm pretty lost for words right now. As an Irishman, you can be pretty sure I know my drink and my bars but wow! This was just mad. I've travelled over 90,000km on this trip and in all the cities and in all the countries I've visited, nothing even comes close. You would walk by this place and never...
We’ve all seen the Kung Fu movies of Ip Man, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero to name a few. Years growing up watching the Big Big Movie on Saturday nights entailed parking up on the couch with popcorn wincing at Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee tore through foes. I always found myself fascinated by martial arts and put...
Note: The below piece has little to no photos and for very good reason. I’ll let you figure out why below! We are also leaving the location out of this as it might be easy to derive the person when reading alongside other blogs embedded and we treasure their privacy very highly! Ive been labelled foolhardy and nieve by “Security...
