  • I saw a hippy get clipped by a Landrover Defender this morning. It was, surely, Karma at its best?

Antarctica


I'm going to drive 2500km across India in a Tuk Tuk. Fairly good chance I'll die. Check out our fundraising website at www.tukklebrothers.co.uk



Remember the phrase "How do you know if you've never tried it? Aren't you out here looking to experience new things?" Girls will do pretty much ANYTHING if you drop that phrase at the right moment.



I've travelled to every continent with the exception of Antartica, and that's next on my list. I've dived some of the best dive spots in the world. I've volunteered with monkeys, lions, pumas, jaguars and bears. I've jumped out of planes. I've thrown myself down grade 5+ rapids on a sledge. I've never had dreadlocks. I've never preached to anyone about being "an eco warrior". I hope that all travellers who have dreadlocks and call themselves "eco travellers" get run over by something incredibly noisy and diesel powered.


We'd been on a bus in Bolivia for about 12 hours, and we had another 12 hours or so to go. We'd all spread out to sleep, when a load of locals got on the bus, and one of them sat next to the lad I was travelling with. Suddenly, he shouts "erm... this guy is putting on some leather gloves... wow... they're fingerless... he's wearing fingerless leather gloves and smiling at me.." At this point I'm laughing fairly hard, but nothing could prepare me for his next comment of "...and now he's touching my leg... Yep, actually rubbing my leg... I can't get out." It was at this point that the bus driver, in the name of comedy value, decided to turn the lights off in the bus... Within 10 seconds my mate had scrambled out of his seat and into the luggage rack above, and was worming his way down the bus as fast as he could, with a look of sheer panic on his face. Truly the funniest thing I've ever seen. Including the time I saw that fat woman fall over in ASDA whilst reaching for a Frey Bentos.
