We are Anna Rice and Alex Hayton and for the next year we will be embracing slow travel by trying to journey around the world without getting on a plane. Armed with a well-thumbed copy of the Ethical Travel Guide and a small Eee PC, we will be aiming to eat local, sleep local and travel with as small a carbon footprint as possible. This is the story of our journey so far…

      Hi Steddy,

      Thanks for the message and sorry for the really slow reply! We have made it to Malaysia now, heading east to Hong Kong by boat, road and rail. We’re going to write about our cargo ship from Australia to here next. Have you got any recommendations for places to stop on the way? Hope you are well, what are you up to nowadays?

    I am the publishing editor of 72&Rising Magazine, a magazine dedicated to all things water. The magazine covers everything from wildlife and conservation, science and research, people and cultures to photography, travel and adventure.

    We are currently in the process of redoing our website where we hope to have submissions from a wide range of people that love and are involved in water in all its forms. I recently came across your blog and wondered if you might be interested in contributing an article with images to our site? We would of course include a link back to your website.

    Many thanks
