One of the many sayings I like to live life by is: “If you don’t ask, you don’t get”
This is especially true when flying.
Everyone loves a little bit of extra legroom on flights, I especially love it as I’m 6ft 4 and often fly 10 hour flights. Very rarely however, do I see people asking if they can sit in these godly exit seats; the seats where your legs can stretch out forever, and the whole plane puts their lives in your hands if there’s an emergency.
Well, start asking people, because its more than possible to get that couple of extra inches (get your mind out the gutter). Here’s how to go about it.

I feel like these things always happen to me.
You’ll hear about how the jeep broke down further on in this post, but it was actually a blessing in disguise!

Want a short and relatively easy hike with epic scenic rewards that are rare to find anywhere else?
Of course you do, and Devils Bridge in Sedona is just the trick!
As one of the main attractions in the area, Devils Bridge has built a reputation as one of the best scenic spots that come with some great photo opportunities. The Bridge is a red rock arch that has been eroded over millions of years by wind and weather.
The bridge looks like its going to collapse at any second due to all the cracks. However, I’ve been told it’ll be there for a few thousand years to come. Lets hope they’re right!

I’ve really fallen in love with the USA over the last couple of years.
Spending two summers working at a summer camp in Maine and subsequently meeting my girlfriend there have made it a home from home and given the country a special place in my heart.
I now hop across the pond whenever I can to see Annie, and today I am lucky enough to be doing just that!

As I sit here writing this post in the common room of my hostel in San Francisco, a somewhat serene scene is being played out in front of me. It’s a scene played out in hostels all across this blue and green marble upon which we live. You have the numerous slaves to their screens (I’m one of them at this moment in time) who are in their own little world. However, amongst these examples of social de-evolution are individual stories being played out that are unique and immensely interesting to watch.

Welcome to the America Series. A 3 part series documenting three places I traveled to after I finished working at summer camp. Entry number one documents a hike up to Seven Falls in Tucson, Arizona. I was in Tucson visiting Annie who I had met at summer camp. She had hiked seven falls with her family when she was younger and decided to take this British fool along with her on another hike up this amazing trail.

America’s pretty cool. I’ve been at summer camp here in Maine for 3 weeks now and haven’t posted about it yet. I’m trying to get away from the ‘Today I did this’ kind of post which to be honest I find kind of boring. Instead I’m trying to write specifically about destinations. So luckily on our first day off camp we visited Portland, Maine, which amazingly turns out is a destination… great success!
