I know that we sometimes feel that the UK has become a bit of a nanny society, but the same could not be said for South America. We have seen and experienced various things that would never be allowed under health and safety in the UK. The latest though was the trains whizzing past with their doors open and people sitting and standing on the steps. Particularly interesting in light of the recent train crash with muliple fatalities.
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.
