Travel is good for the mind and body. From June 2008 to June 2009 Cesca and I left our jobs and took a journey of a lifetime. In 12 Months we visited 12 countries, took 18 flights, drank 500 pints of beer, suffered 4 cases of food poisoning, experienced 1 bungy jump, 1 Sky Dive, used up 500gb of storage with 60gb of video, too 57 thousand photos, had 1 close shark encounter, witnessed 1 rainbow at night, 9 tigers, 5 pandas, 1 camel ride, 1 large earthquake, walked 20 thousand steps up Mount Wudang, had 1 encounter with the worlds largest spider!
