Surviving My First Earthquake

As an Englishman, I have never had much reason to worry about natural disasters other than on a purely humanitarian level when I have watched devastation take place on the television. Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones and tornadoes are not something that we really worry about on the British Isles. We may freak out when the waves reach over the top of Torquay’s sea wall, or … Continue reading Surviving My First Earthquake

Travel Nuggets: How You Can See Stonehenge For Free

I often get a little embarrassed when people in Mexico ask about the main tourist attractions in the UK, once I have finished eulogising about London and its attractions, I run out of places to talk about, the exceptions being Edinburgh Castle and natural beauty spots . Here in Mexico they have one of the 7 Wonders of the World in Chichen Itza, one of … Continue reading Travel Nuggets: How You Can See Stonehenge For Free

Mexico City Police, My Experience So Far

You would think that a country which is known for providing the world with the largest drug cartels on the planet, would have terrible levels of policing, and you would be absolutely right. I haven’t ventured into Sinaloa or Jalisco to experience the policing skills up there, but I don’t think I ‘d be shooting too wide of the mark to suggest that the law … Continue reading Mexico City Police, My Experience So Far

What is Life Like With a Mexican Girlfriend

There is a very real possibility that my testicles will not be attached for a great deal longer after I have finished this article, but let’s not let a little bit of potential pain and humiliation stand in the way of the truth. I have lived with my girlfriend in Mexico for just over a year now and many people often ask what it is like … Continue reading What is Life Like With a Mexican Girlfriend

The Day I Met The Mexican President’s ‘Son’

So yesterday I decide to do a little work in the morning, then ditch the work to have a ‘girly’ day, haircut a massage and a pedicure, OK  maybe not the pedicure but the other 2 were necessary. Anyway, I get my haircut first, way too short but I of course said “that looks brilliant,” when the hairdresser asked my opinion. Then onto an amazing … Continue reading The Day I Met The Mexican President’s ‘Son’

The Best Way To Meander Through Central America

The best way of traversing through Central America, from my experience, is by bus, flying is extortionate, trains don’t exist and boats serve little purpose unless you’re island hopping. Now when I say bus, I mean the coaches and not the Chicken Busses. For those unaware, the chicken busses are old US school busses that have been given a sort of Blackpool slut style makeover … Continue reading The Best Way To Meander Through Central America

Fear and Loathing in Central America

As I sit here in this backyard hotel, rotten to the core, surrounded by the filth of society in what feels like crackhead mecca my brain shifts to address the exhaustion that occupies me as a result of one of the world’s largest toilets, Central America. This resort was no doubt created for potless travellers, seedy businessmen and down-on-their-luck vagrants by some ‘visionary’ Nicaraguan couple, looking to add something to their luckless … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Central America

Forget All You ‘Know’ About Honduras, It’s Stunning

With two cities inside the top 5 most murderous in the World it would be easy for you to fall into the trap of considering Honduras as nothing more than a violent and gang controlled playground of the CIA that offers little more than fear and blood. This is wrong. In northern Honduras I stayed in La Ceiba, more specifically the Pico Bonito National Park, … Continue reading Forget All You ‘Know’ About Honduras, It’s Stunning

Quick Stories; El Salvador to Honduras

The day was upon me, the day I travel to San Pedro Sula in Honduras, officially the most violent city in the World. I wasn’t travelling there to be a boastful dick, it was just very difficult to avoid as I wanted to go to La Ceiba and flying wasn’t an option. A privately hired minivan picked me up from the hotel and first took … Continue reading Quick Stories; El Salvador to Honduras
