Australia

Apart from the gargantuan spiders, I love everything about Australia, from the laid-back culture to the beautiful beaches to the bewildering remoteness of the Outback.

Night buses are much easier to endure with some form of sedative, preferably red wine. Restaurants are generally safe to eat in if the patrons aren't rolling around on the floor clutching their stomachs. On a serious note, travel is as much a psychological journey as it is a physical one, so open your mind completely and embrace whatever comes your way. (Apart from king cobras; they don't like to be embraced.)


In a moment of madness a friend and I signed up to take part in a canoe marathon in the Swedish lake district. Neither of us had canoed before, let alone trained for the event. We didn't expect to get 10 yards beyond the starting post, but somehow managed to paddle the entire 36-mile course. It didn't matter that it took 12 hours to complete, or that we crossed the finish line half-dead. We felt like heroes. It was a good lesson: be spontaneous and always have a crack!
