Top Sites

Air Sickness Bag Virtual Museum – A strange and wonderful award winning site devoted to the sick bag. The museum currently exhibits over 1400 examples of barf bags from around the world and includes not only airline sick bags, but also for bus, train, and car transport. There is even one from the space shuttle.

The Adventurists – Take a look at the Adventurists for a different way of getting around the world as this collection of self described pillocks are hell bent on bringing the adventure revolution to the people. Their activities, which help raise funds for charity, include the Mongol Rally, a rickshaw run and finding the lost city of Ascuncion via a mototaxi junket. Looks great fun.

The Italian Job – Get a Mini and drive over the Alps to Italy along with loads of other people in Minis. It’s not a self preservation society as on days like these the purpose is to raise charity funds. The rally costs £600 per car to enter and there is a service van manned by experienced and knowledgeable crew should you break down or accidently blow the bloody doors off.

Jupitalia – Held together by tape, my copy of Ted Simon’s Jupiter’s Travels is one of my favourite travel books. Starting his first journey around the world on a 500cc Triumph Tiger in 1973, Ted has since become a foundation.
