Don’t be so Senegal

October 15th, 2019 Jack Noah Rees Well, here we go. Welcome curious souls to my latest ridiculous escapade through foreign lands. Over the next three months (or eighty-two days to be exact), I plan on keeping you mildly amused with tales backpacking through Sub-Saharan Africa. From the emerging coastal capitals on the Atlantic to the vast deserted in-land nations of the…

Hasta la Vista, Centroamérica

January 31st, 2019 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I escaped the tourist throngs of Tulum by haggling for space cakes with a vagrant on a Mexican beach. This week would be my last, as I savoured the final few days of my voyage in the capital, before boarding a Boeing back to Britain. Day 78 – Mexico City, Mexico The start…

“We’ll Pay for the Wall,” said no Juan Ever

January 28th, 2019 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I explored the enigmatic nation of Belize – surviving encounters with stingrays, sharks and, even more terrifyingly, Queen Elizabeth II. This week, I ate El Chapo's weight in tacos and tortillas as I went cenote-hopping and ruin-trekking along Mexico’s trendy tail. Day 71 – Bacalar, Mexico to Tulum, Mexico So, I ended last…

You Better Belize It!

January 23rd, 2019 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I got moist in a large river and moister in a larger lake before travelling the height of Guatemala in search of some forested relics. This week belongs to Belize, as I spent the week travelling through a miniature corner of the Caribbean – patting sharks and consuming crustaceans along the way. Day…

Ruining my Life

January 12th, 2019 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I spluttered and scrambled my way to the highpoint, and highlight, of my Central American voyage (and possibly of all my travels) thus far: the summit of Volcan de Acatenango. This week would be my last in Guatemala (and last with dipsomaniac companions Tuur and Bri), as we let our barnets down by a…

A Climb of Great Magmatude

December 7th, 2018 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I spotted some elaborate plumage amongst ancient ruins (no not Elton John and David Furnish), before enduring an inordinate number of hours of local transport to reach a surfing utopia. This week is all about volcanoes, as I set myself the biggest challenge I will face on my entire journey: to get within…

Hell Salvador?

November 26th, 2018 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I reluctantly slid down the youngest volcano in Central America before attempting to sightsee in some of the most murderous cities on planet earth (not including Tunbridge Wells). This week, I search for a pair of waterfalls in two different nations as I hit the windswept Pacific Coast for the final time. Day…

Drink Too Much and you’re Honduras

November 15th, 2018 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I crawled my way up two giants on the mystical island of Ometepe before attempting to dodge bullets in the capital. This week, I left a nation that has been highly unstable since April, for one that has been highly unstable for the last fifty years. Better keep my bullet-proof long johns on.…

A Tale of Two Volcanoes

November 11th, 2018 Jack Noah Rees Last week, I couchsurfed across the Costa Rican capital, before stalking simians and reptiles along its western shores. This week, I began my journey through a new nation, as I reached unprecedented heights on the island of voodoo and velociraptors. Day 29 – San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua Nicaragua. A country that, until April of…
