These words, by Lord Byron, were sent to me by my friend Nicola Gillam as a way to explain why she is so passionate about her adventure travels to some of the most natural and most unexplored areas in the world. I’m fascinated by what motivates people do such trips. Especially when the choices they make result in some difficulties or sacrifices. Take for example, the type of vacations Nicky likes to take. They put her in nature and amongst some of the most beautiful natural landscapes you can hope to see but, they also have her battling the elements and testing her body, her spirit, and her endurance. Not necessarily my idea of a vacation. Where I might choose a 5 star hotel and fine restaurants, Nicky loves to explore the great outdoors; unspoiled locations where roughing it doesn’t even begin to describe the experience.Read More

If you’re thinking of booking a holiday at the moment, I know one of the things that’s going to be at the forefront of your mind is the cost of it all. Because at the end of the day, holidays are expensive, especially if you’re going during the school holidays. You have to pay for the price of the package holiday, plus any additional extras, plus clothes, plus spending money while you’re there.
