Do you ever look at your travel photos and then look at someone else’s and think, “Wow, I am really behind in this photography thing!”

If all the world’s backpackers were put on a list and I was told I had to choose the coolest – and I couldn’t choose myself – I would probably choose Kirsty Henderson as that person.

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow.
Carl Hoffman, you must have outdone yourself on this one. Seeking out the world’s most dangerous forms of transportation while traveling to some of the craziest places? Please sir, give me more; this is by far the most outrageous RTW trip anyone has ever attempted.
Rightfully named The Lunatic Express, Carl basically went on… Read more
