Our popular ‘eggonomics’ travel blogger Ben Aitken has abandoned his organic omelettes, Roger the Nissan campervan (with a clutch like bronchitis) and indeed the British Isles for a spell in the southern hemisphere.
The freelance travel writer and theatre critic will be exploring Australia and sharing a frank and bustling account of life downunder.
In typical Ben fashion the trip is likely to include periods of idling – when entire weeks are passed in books and pubs – but on the whole he’ll be busy learning, writing and surviving.
He may even get active through his membership of organic farming charity WWOOF – which is essentially couch surfing but on farms.
He’ll be writing a blog of his likely misfortunes and sharing it all with travelbite.co.uk.
