For a lot of travellers the thought of a long distance flight is a necessary evil to get through in order to experience the exotic lands that await at the end. Twenty hours of cramped hell. We don’t care what the reviews say, unless you select a premium seating option, even economy on Singapore Airlines is tight especially as Steve is 6’2″! A great way to break up such a long journey and what most people tend to do (it’s also cheaper) is stopover for a few hours/days.
Our second story comes from Alexander Attridge; Currently travelling through the North American continent
I am a 21 year old aspiring actor who dabbles in photography and cares a little too much about his hair. At around the age of thirteen I found out that the only thing I was any good at was making a fool of myself on stage. In pursing this I met some great people, had some amazing experiences and made my way into drama school. Hoping to take my career in acting further I have dropped it all and disappeared into the wilds of Canada on my own for a year, bracing the politeness and the cold to explore some of the most amazing landscapes in the world. Laid back is commonly how people describe me, too lazy to give a reasonable reaction is more accurate though.
We put together a set of questions to ask travellers whether they travel short or long term. Be inspired as Alex tells us about his experiences in the extreme cold and vast landscape of Canada…
