This is the end!

Hi everyone, I am just letting you all know I am pulling off the road for the foreseeable future. My health is taking its toll and I am getting too tired. This will give me the chance to update you all on the last eight months of travel.

Until then keep travelling for me and keep rocking.


Current number of countries visited; 41 plus all 50 US States and all 10 Provinces of Canada.

Nearing the end of travels for now!

Hi all, its Tonythetraveller. I have just finished another amazing trip. It lasted eight weeks and took in most of the east coast of Canada and some of the US. I visited Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland in Canada, thus completing a visit to all of Canada’s 10 Provinces. Before that I was in beautiful Norway. What a country! The most expensive in the world! This was proved to me when I had to take a taxi to the airport which is in the middle of nowhere. I could not afford to miss this flight as I had a connecting flight to New York awaiting me in London. The distance was 70 miles, 100 kilometres. It cost me a staggering £280; I could not believe it!!! The food in Norway was amazing, veggies with every meal! I tried Reindeer, it was delicious – tender but filling.

I next go to Switzerland to jump one of the longest bungee jumps in the world. I might be in Europe a month or maybe 10 days, it depends on my health. My kidneys are nearly non-functional. this means I will be off the road for the foreseeable future until I get a kidney transplant. Wish me luck. Keep rocking on the road everyone, Tony


Hi people, just to let you all know I did some amazing a couple of weeks ago. I finally crossed the Arctic Circle. I was on the coastal steamer going up Norway’s West coast and at around 07.18 am at parallel 66.33 we crossed the Arctic Circle. What an achievement. I tell you it was cold!!!

I am at present in North America. Toronto to be exact. I have the last two Provinces in Canada to explore – Prince Edward island and Newfoundland. I will be back in the UK around April 14th

Something cool

Hi everyone just a quick note to tell everyone. I am currently in Norway, Bergen. Today I climbed a mountain. With no help apart from the occasional word of encouragement or a direction or two. I made it to the top found snow and stuff up my fum. then wondered back down, as you do!!! I naturally walked on the edge many times even falling off on one occasion! Naturally I survived. A nice quiet day with Tony. Have fun whatever you are all doing in the world.

Brief update

Hi everyone. This is Tony, just giving a brief update of my recent travels.

During November-December I was in Sri Lanka – a lovely quiet country with charming people and beautiful nature. The picture of me with elephants proves this.

Then I went to Spain for the xmas and New year. I visited Madrid, lovely, Barcelona, spending xmas day on the beach in the sun and Sevila, my favour place in Spain. However, I got all my money stolen from my account in a credit card scam. I returned home to sorted and after my bank refunded me I returned to Spain and continued the journey.

I flew back to Sevila for a night, seeing friends then headed to Lisbua, capital of Portugal. A great small capital with many steep hills, thousands of street obstacles and many difficult old pavements to negotiate. I met many cool people and was helped about all over the city. I next headed down south to Lagos, a small beach town with lively pubs and hostels in the summer and a quiet ambiance of peacefulness in winter. I stayed at a hostel named the Rising cock! Pancakes every morning for breakfast accompanied by lemon tea – it is meant to cure hangovers!

After several days in Lagos, walking the cliff tops, soaking up the sun and enjoying the beaches and the sea I moved onto Cadiz and back to Spain. A car ride with an interesting Swede and a very cool Aussie guy was fun as we cruised the Spanish highways – enjoying the company and scenery.

A night in Cadiz produced another good hostel and a small city with several squares and a nice beach. I was next deposited in Gibraltar where I spent a night in a basic hostel that lacked atmosphere. the small main town centre was nice and people of English-Spanish-Italian-Moroccan mix seemed friendly and helpful. I took a taxi tour up the rock usually £16 per person but got it free. The highlight of the tour was having my picture taken with a wild monkey on my head!

I took several buses to my final destination in Spain, Terefa, apparently the windiest city in Europe, spent a day on its massive beach then caught the evening boat to Tangier, Morocco. The 35 minute journey cost 31 Euros. Once in Tangier an empty port town I went to the main train station and took the night train to Marrokesh in the Southern region. I ran out of money so only saw Marrokesh. It was an interesting city full of mopeds, drums and many smells, ranging from incense to cooking meet and various other unusual fragrants. After  a week in Morocco I caught a flight back to London.

My trip lasted three weeks and apart from meeting some fantastic people, breaking my dark glasses and having my cane broken when someone stepped on it in a Moroccan marketplace, it was mostly uneventful.

I next go to Norway.
