Anyone with a shrewd eye will have noticed that the most recent update prior to this one was October 17th, 2010. That’s over three years ago! Am I still alive? Evidently! Have I stopped travelling or having adventures? Why of course not. Unfortunately, due to the drudgery of work and commuting 6,000 miles on a regular basis, I have neglected to update this prized possession of mine for far too long. And there’s worse news to come… I won’t be updating it anymore (cue dramatic gasp). 

However, I’m here with a monster scoop of great news to soften your disappointment, for I am in the process of building a new, far superior website altogether! It’s called…

Exploremo.re  (yes, that ”dot” is in the correct place).

This all new site will elevate my contribution to travel blogging to new levels. Instead of always jabbering on about incidentals of every journey I go on, I plan to offer genuinely helpful and practical advice on the world beyond one’s front door. I’ll be writing about many of the planet’s great destinations, unique and concise ideas about what to do when you get there, I’ll be imparting tips, tricks and personal experience to any reader keen enough to check in. So what will you notice if you start following my new website, Exploremo.re?

  • More regular updates.
  • Bigger, clearer, higher resolution photographs.
  • Articles, advice, tips and recommendations on close to 70 countries on 6 continents.
  • Ways to save money, pick up deals and make the most out of each trip you take.
  • The chance to contribute and get publicity for your own website or blog.
  • A personal photo blog where you can keep up to date with my wanders.
  • And as always, entirely free!

My aim is to make it one of the most definitive, respected and useful personally created travel resources out there. So, have a look, spread the word, check back frequently and get involved. I look forward to interacting with you over at my new creation.

As for ”thereisanotherworld”, I’d like to say few sentences on the difference it’s made to me before I depart.

Over it’s 7 year lifespan, thereisanotherworld has had close to 100,000 views from over 120 countries. I’ve received lots of feedback, mostly positive, and it’s been a superb way to let friends, family and strangers see what travelling means to me.

It’s also been an effective way for me to improve my photography and writing skills. Most of all though, I’ve had a lot of fun maintaining this blog, recollecting the stories told and publishing them for others to enjoy.

From thereisanotherworld, goodbye.

I hope to see you over at Exploremo.re in the near future.

The road between Sorrento and Salerno is one of the most dramatic in the world. Known as the ‘Amalfi Coast’, it encapsulates a quintessential part of classic Italian iconography. Sharp bends, overarching cliff faces, soft hued, sun-soaked towns built on the hillsides – it really is the kind of backdrop better suited to a 1950’s movie. Just be warned, driving it is not for the faint of heart.

The continuous rumbles of our overnight ferry finally gave way to a great gliding groan, and with it we knew the Port of Naples was close. Dawn was still an hour away and outside the nearing lights of the city were glistening orange. Yet beyond the urban melee my eyes focused in on the dim outline of something far more imposing, strange and majestic – Mount Vesuvius.

After a long night trying but largely failing to get much sleep on a giant RORO ferry, the last thing one might expect to be doing the next day is travelling a further 200 miles by road. That, however, is exactly what we did – not that it was all bad. Beyond the now expected yet still horrendous Italian traffic, there was indeed somewhere very much worth the supreme effort – Monte Cassino.

Whether it’s the ball at the end of Italy’s foot, the home of the Mafia, or as the resultingly idyllic setting for parts of the Godfather films, the very mention of Sicily conjures up plenty of iconic imagery, reinforced time and again by popular media and culture. But what of the true Sicily, found beyond all the stereotypes? I had the far from arduous task of going there and finding out.
