Descriptions

For the past ten years, has been working, drifting, trekking, or gallivanting their way about the globe. Happiest when hiking, Sarah is almost always content in the mountains – although ancient ruins in sweltering jungles come a close second! With 60+ countries visited (and more than a few lived in), Sarah and her husband have gathered a healthy array of memories, from the astounding to the abhorrent!

    Tips

    Whether it’s a short trip or a year’s journey, when it comes to packing it has always worked well to stick to the rule of three: three tops (at least one long sleeved), three bottoms (at least one pair of light-weight hiking trousers), and three pairs of socks. In cold weather, a base layer, fleece and a hat are usually all that is needed. Layering up is very effective!
    If you can, carry more than one bank card in case you lose one or the ATM simply says ‘no’. Similarly, it is always comforting to keep the bulk of your savings in a card-less account to protect against theft, although you’ll need internet access to do fairly frequent online transfers.
    It is probably worth carrying at least one or two dry bags on any trip. Being able to waterproof some of your clothes at least guarantees you will have something to change into when you are caught out in the rain – or when your boat leaks or your bus floods!
