Bee & Nick Say: After one of our more epic travel days that involved 17 hours on a cargo boat, speed boat, a lift with a man who had a distinct Tony Soprano vibe in his jeep AND a bus that kicked us out on a motorway forcing us to walk 2km in the dark having no clue where we were…. We were not in a good mood when we arrived at our hostel.
All of this changed when we logged on to our email and found out that we’ve been shortlisted in the travel category of the UK Blog Awards! From 50 nominations to a group of 10 shortlisted, we now get to go to a snazzy awards do once we are back in London. This in itself is a prize… The prospect of “black tie” after wearing the same two tee shirts for 6months will be dreamy. Most importantly THANK YOU to everyone who voted, tweeted & has tuned in to our travel tales. It makes every sweatbox cyber cafe session battling foreign keyboards worthwhile!
Bee & Nick Say: Happy New Year and a huge thank you to everyone who has been tuning in to our adventures. Obviously for us we are hoping that 2014 will hold as many amazing experiences as 2013… perhaps with a few less scrapes!
One exciting piece of news to begin the shiny year is that we are nominated for a UK Blog Award, in the Travel section. Competition is fierce, and the shortlist is an X-Factor style popularity contest based on who gets the most votes. We are up against some incredible contenders, such as the World Wildlife Fund blog and some other super talented travel writers, so it is really flattering to even be included. However, obviously we have our eye on the prize (and an excuse to get our gladrags on once we are back) so it would mean the world to us if you could head over and vote! It takes about… 10 seconds!

We also wrote a guest blog for the UK Blog awards here, all about being on the road over the festive period and some tips on making sure you have the best possible time, despite being parted from friends, family and other vital things like Home Alone.
