This is a question I should have been arrested

Faced with The Law when I and a bunch of equally idiotic mates set off a load of loud explosions down the local chalk pit, we blamed bigger boys who had run off. Tell us of the times when you got away with something naughty and slightly out of order.

Thanks to MatJ for the suggestion

yep, that would make you a tourist, or an expat. I think the 'interesting' bit starts once you get away from that. For me it was all about not being able to squawk for help if things go to shit. You make your decisions and live by them. Sure you are going to have an easy time of it if you're in a city with a credit card, but there aren't any easy exits in the middle off the jungle or the desert. The great thing about getting of the tourist routes is there aren't hotels - you eat on the street with the other young men, and actually see the real country not the tourist destinations. And yes, it can be dangerous at times, but those moments are outweighed by all the good people that you meet. I learned a lot about myself which surprised me as I've been around the block - if I'd been in some of the situations I found myself in on the trip when I was 20 I'd probably had fucked it up and killed myself.

have been re-reading
long way down recently.

It sounds very appealing. Too late for me now though, my wife and kids would never stand for it!

You should ask the missus - if you're lucky she might be glad to get rid of you for a few months. I did some of the routes as they did, only without the support team. Having to do you own washing up is a bitch.

Yeah, was a bit like that. But still, if you could, why wouldn't you?
