Following four months backpacking through South Africa which entailed swashbuckling safaris, eye-opening cultural experiences and glugging copious amounts of red wine, Leigh Woods, Project Manager at Youth Time decided to try something a bit different. Travelling along the Garden Route from east to west, he landed in Cape Town where he spent two weeks exploring and generally dithering about where to travel next. Upon discovering the plentiful options of overlanding tours, it quickly became apparent that the desert encrusted land of Namibia was the place to go…

The former Sugar Bowl of the world welcomed 4.2 million tourists in 2017, according to the national tourism agency, Viajes Cuba. The place 'where fertile land is abundant' (the meaning of cubao) is a ‘socialist El Dorado’, and Cuba is today a popular destination for tourists from all over the world.

Wishful thinking for some is reality for a few others. The interconnected world we live in makes it possible, and sometimes quite rewarding, to become a nomad, travel the world, do what you wish to do, perhaps even live on your own tems to an extent and earn a good living. We are interviewing Alexander Waltner of Sweden, who has made all of these dreams his personal reality.
