Little known fact about me, my university degree was in Archaeology. I spent three years of my life learning about all things ancient and aspiring to become a combination of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. Obviously since I ended up working in marketing this didn’t quite work out but I still have a love for all things ancient and find it incredibly fascinating to visit remains of past civilisations.

Happy belated New Year to everyone! I’m slightly behind with posting but we’ve just been super busy since Christmas. What a 2012 we’ve had, I look back and seriously wonder how we’ve managed to fit everything in. I’ve been thrilled with how my 30th year has turned out and can’t wait to see what 31 will bring! When we first started our RTW adventure we had pretty definite ideas of how much time we’d like to spend in each country for the first 6 months. We had key goals and activities we wanted to do and said we’d leave planning the second half of the trip until later on. Well later on has arrived and we’re still fairly clueless. We do have some ideas and some very definite dates to work to but any suggestions and comments would be much appreciated. 2013 looks a bit like this so far…
