In June 2011 I wrote a blog about the different breeds of backpacker. I talked about the flashpacker, backpacker and of course the slackpacker.
Just over 2 years on from this I have noticed a new breed of backpacker. I’ve called this type the lackpacker. I’m here in New Zealand myself, not as a backpacker this time. I am here hoping that I can settle here for good when I find a job. But more on that in another post. Continue reading

We get to the train station on time which is good news for me as I want to go to the cash machine again. Continue reading

As she is going to Milan we sit together on our train from Sargans to Zurich When we reach Zurich there’s some confusion about the train to Milan.
