Biggsy Travels is a blog about ‘unique travel experiences’. Things that nobody has written about before, or better still never experienced before. From winning a private jet to running the New York marathon with a supermodel.

Not everything can be a “one-off” though so you’ll find more repeatable ones too. With enough useful hints & tips for you to decide whether you want to try it for yourself.

My fav travelling gadgets!

These are my favourite travel items & I recommend you get something like them too. A battery charger is great for keeping you all “juiced up” on those long bus journeys or for when you’re stuck out in the middle of nowhere. An extension lead is perfect for hotel rooms that only have one plug socket! Why get through lots of plastic bottles when all you need is one sturdy steel bottle? Finally a stand for your camera/GoPro for all those “group jumping in the air shots”.
