The High Life

There is a tourist activity in Luxor that doesn't involve dragging your unwilling carcass through dusty archaeological sites, lamenting the fact you didn't bring enough water whilst you try to stop your devices from heating up and the sun claims the top layer of your skin as its very own. Hot air ballooning, guys! It's [...]

Seat Of The Gods

Climb up the highest mountain in Greece, they said. It'll be fun, they said. By "they" I mean me, obviously, and now we're both walking like we've shat ourselves. We didn't go to the highest of the 52 peaks either on account of not having a death wish. Mytikas is 2917 m.a.s.l. and is quite [...]

Back To The Mainland

I feel like ferry schedules in Greece are more of a, I don't know, a serving suggestion perhaps? Sure, we can do this journey in 2 hours and 25 minutes. In fact that's what we'll advertise it as. But fucked if that's actually what we're going to do it in despite the handbrake turns into [...]

Island Hopping – Santorini Part 1

It's like you can't have a really good experience on an island without it then being counteracted by the next. Santor-fucking-rini, honestly, what the actual fuck? We'd intended to stay at the campsite in Fira but the reviews were crap and we still had that shithole on Paros on our minds. So we went wayyyyy [...]

Island Hopping – Naxos Part 2

We woke up on the Sunday and decided to nope out of any manner of immediate movement. Fuck it, it's the Lord's day and she'd want us to be happy and anyway, we're on holiday. The campsite is slap bang opposite the beach so we lounged in bed (or on the inflatable mattresses that pass [...]

Island Hopping – Delos & Mykonos

We really, really wanted to visit Delos, a super important archealogical island close to Mykonos. What we really, really didn't want to do was stay on Mykonos for two nights on account of it being obnoxiously expensive. The kind of expensive whereby you can only sob as you hand over anything north of €120 for [...]

Day 2 – Firle(ish) to Pyecombe

I didn't sleep well at all last night. We were pitched on a slight slope and my mat is slightly slippy and my sleeping bag is slightly slippy which meant I frequently woke up crumpled at the bottom of the tent. Also I never sleep well on the first night of wild camping. Every single [...]
