Having a sundowner with friends and family whilst in Laikipia, Kenya. As the sun set near a watering hole, over 100 elephants came out of the trees to drink and play in the water. The best natural high you could ever experience. Amazing.

Sitting in a café bar in Banos, (below the Tungurahua volcano) in Ecuador asking the Jamaican gentleman playing the guitar for a go. I took the guitar, cranked up the amplifier and hit my first power chord – simultaneously the whole town’s electricity supply went down – complete darkness!

Out for dinner with Claire in Italy, and she decides to order our meal as she speaks a little Italian. It sounded really good to me, but the waiter responded, “Sorry, we don’t have cannabis toppings on our pizzas.

Shown to our tent, in the Masai Mara, we noticed a big lump under the bed covers …so I grabbed a rock before pulling back the covers to reveal a hot water bottle.

A Mediterranean Cruise for a multi celebration year almost ruined when my mother misread the flight times! We turned up as check-in was closing to find only 2 seats left …after a few phone calls the airline managed to squeeze us all on! Mum hasn't lived it down.

Having enjoyed a week of excesses at the Hong Kong 7’s, we headed off to Koh Samui for a rest. It took forever to get there and on arrival we were faced with a dilemma – did we want the 2 / 5 or 10 baht a night luxury hut!?
Craig Burns, Internet Marketing Manager
On the first day of our holiday in Barbados, I waded about 10 metres into the sea before noticing I had something in my pocket…it was my iPod! Goodbye music!
