Gibbering Madness: Snapshots of a Bizarre Life

Gibbering Madness: Snapshots of a Bizarre Life is a very interesting site to be sure. There, Alex weaves his web of real life adventures. The entries are written in true “mystery novelist” style and Alex will have you wondering if he’s been “channeling” Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon) or Herman Melville (Moby Dick). Something says [...]

Sereia Rides Again

What started off as a sailing trip in the South Ocean has turned into an exploration of New Zealand in an old beat-up van for this family of three. Antonia, the family scribe, is a great storyteller, sharing their tales with a dry, witty style.

13 Epic and Slightly Crazy Travel Adventures

Many people dream of going on big adventures; only a few ever do it. For this article, I found 13 individuals, couples and families who had the guts to embark on epic adventures. You may envy them, or you may think they’re crazy. But I guarantee that their stories will inspire you.

The World By Sea

In November 2007, Derek set out with his friend to sail around the world, while helping charities and communities along the way by raising funds on his blog.

Going Solo: Interview with Debby Lee Jagerman

Debby has travelled up and down Europe, Vietnam and Alaska on her own, and she's visited Australia, New Zealand and Iceland with friends and family. Most recently, Debby circumnavigated the Baltic Sea for a little over two weeks, squeezing in visits to seven capital cities.

Debby now blogs about her travel experiences on Beth Whitman's Wanderlust and Lipstick, a site dedicated to encouraging solo women travellers.

I caught up with her to talk about her recent trip to the Baltics and her perspective on travelling solo.

Slow Travel

Ed and Fiona are on a Round the World trip with a twist: they won’t fly. They’ll take every mode of transport around and revel in the slow movement throughlandscape, culture, people and language – instead of passing over it all in an aluminium sausage. (Interview with Ed)

Flightless Round the World: Interview with Ed Gillespie

Ed and Fiona are a couple from the United Kingdom on a year-long trip around the world, with one major twist: they're doing it flightless. Passing up the convenience of flying, they're travelling by bus, train, cargo ship, bicycle, or any other flightless mode of transport.

They're avoiding air travel to keep their environmental footprint to a minimum, but also because they relish the journey. Rather than jetting miles above the earth's crust, they prefer travelling slower, savouring the cultures and landscapes they encounter along the way.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
