My name is Charlie Barrett and my travel journey started in Germany in 1999 where curiosity and a love of adventure too hold. Since then the road has taken me to Australia, Asia, South and Central America, USA, Europe and Africa. Adventure travel and places with interesting stories have appealed to me more and more over the years and I have been lucky enough to see places from the renaissance city of Florence to the bubbling lava of Nyiragongo volcano in Democratic Republic of Congo. Each place I have visited tells a story and now I would like to shares these stories. After over 20 years I have tales of great people, magical places, sad stories and of course the odd mishap. Hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy writing about it!
