Just Morocco I'm afraid...

 

 

'Africa' is a sorry excuse for a section at the moment... I don't think my adventures in Morocco could be classed as 'real Africa' even if they were my first experience of solo-travel and so far that's the only glimpse I've had of this enourmous and exciting continent. Hopefully that will all change one day.

Why and how we should be trying to preserve our Oceans.

 

Having spent quite some time ranting about the refugee crisis, I wanted to write about something else close to my heart, incredibly important, but not yet personal enough to make me shake with rage.

This collaboration of magical camping spots has taken an embarrassingly long time to put together, but I can't help but feel proud of the result. With some of my traveller idols, friends and even family involved, it's hard to decide if I'm more excited by the contributors or the places they have written about. If this doesn't persuade you that you don't always want to sleep with a roof over your head, then I'm happy to keep the wilderness for myself.
