Welcome to our travel blog. We are Tabitha and Nic. In 2011 we 'retired' in our early 40s and set off to travel the world. We spent our first year in South America and have been lucky enough to make two trips to Antarctica.

Our blog is a record of our travels, thoughts and experiences. It is not a guide book, but we do include some tips and information, so we hope that you may find it useful if you are planning to visit somewhere we have been. Or you may just find it interesting as a bit of armchair travel.

Down but not out

When I think of a homeless person, I think of someone who lives constantly on the streets, perhaps with a cardboard box or two to call home.  They will probably have a few sleeping bags and some carrier bags with their worldly good.  They probably need a good wash, and are likely, especially in South America, to have a dog for company.

What I don't expect is that they will have a television.

There is a guy on the streets of Buenos Aires who fulfills all of the above.  It appears that he may have persuaded the local business that he sleeps outside of to let him run a power cable onto the street so that he can lie on his box and watch the TV.  And it isn't a small TV as you can see in the picture.

It comes to something that a homeless guy owns a TV when I don't.
