Comprising Spagus (derived from Asparagus), or Cam. Previously rural banker and farmer that has decided to ditch his tie and gumboots in exchange for a backpack and shaved head. Partnered with Shroom (derived from Mushroom), or Cat. Formally a country/city/country girl that has left behind the world of policy consulting and has ditched her high heels for some comfortable (yet stylish) footwear to support a wee bit of globetrotting through 2010 and 2011. We hope you enjoy following the travels of SpaguShroom through Europe, North America and South America!

Safely arrived and ready to cruise

Smooth flying and a relatively sweet stop-over in Hong Kong for the night, ensured I arrived fresh faced and ready for my big adventure to London Heathrow. Great friend Victoria escorted me through the 5pm (Bank Holiday Friday/no tolerance for backpackers) commuter traffic, to her cute home in Clapham.
After a one night stay in each London and South Hampton I was ready to embark cruise ship the ‘Artemis’, my home for the next two weeks as I journey around the coast of Norway with my sister Helen. With flowers, chocolates and a fruit bowl delivered to the cabin on arrival and champagne and a live band playing for sail away-it all felt a little bit Titanic and a great bit exciting for the adventures that lay ahead. A taste of luxury that I must lap up in its entirety as 11 months of travel as a backpacker loom shortly after I disembark this mighty vessel.
