I'm Harry - and I was tired of the same old "10 best places I've never been but I'm writing about for some reason" blog posts. So... I'm a young traveller on a mission to travel the world and share my true, unfiltered experience, including all the gristly details. From packing my life into one bag for a year, to traveling Vietnam by motorbike, to sorting out Visas for specific countries - I've done it all, am doing it all and only give my advice on things I have done - not regurgitated cr*p from another source *cough* most publications *cough*. So bear with us! This project will take some time to grow, and will take a fair bit of money. But I'm determined to make it the single best source of information about traveling on the internet.
