After our recent globe-trotting adventures in the sunshine, Petra and I were ready to hit the road again. But this time around, I decided to take us to see a sight that was like nothing else on Earth - a spectacle called the Northern Lights.
After an unforgettable day at Kennedy Space Centre, we took a short journey south to Cocoa Beach - aka heaven on earth.
After taking a little break from travelling, I decided it was time to head off on another adventure, but this time around, I’d have a little company – my girlfriend Petra! We met whilst salsa dancing on my trip to Cuba earlier this year.
After already visiting 7 amazing countries, my global gecko adventure ended in Cuba – a country like nowhere else I’d visited. Apparently, Cuba was once completely shut off from the rest of the world and its towns and cities have barely changed in hundreds of years. It’s also a country with mile upon mile of … Continue reading Chilling out in Cuba

After travelling to some incredible islands on my recent cruise around the Caribbean, the next leg of my global adventure involved visiting another stunning island - Cyprus. It’s well-known for its gorgeous beaches, pine-forested mountains, ancient historic sites, and amazing food. Oh, and apparently it gets around 340 days of sunshine a year! So basically, … Continue reading Sightseeing in Cyprus
On the second leg of my grand adventure, I’ve set another first for gecko-kind - sailing on a cruise ship! A Princess Caribbean cruise ship to be precise. It’s basically like an enormous luxury hotel that floats on water and sails between the most exotic Caribbean islands you’ve ever seen. How cool is that? And, while … Continue reading A Luxury Caribbean Cruise
