How I lost 55kg (120lbs) and became the best traveler I could be!

Visiting the Sea Lions of San Francisco's Pier 39

There's no shortage of things to do when visiting Pier 39 in San Fran. With an abundance of restaurants, shopping, sights & activities you won't be left bored. My favourite thing however, was the sea lions that have made the Pier their home and become a world renown attraction in their own right.

It is in this place that you can ride rollercoasters in a dune buggy, sandboard down gigantic dunes, witness a spectacular sunset over the desert and camp overnight in the middle of the beautiful, peaceful desert.

Life on the Road: the good, bad & ugly of bus rides in Bolivia

Having recently spent three months travelling around South America, I learnt more than ever that things often don't go to plan whilst on the road.
