What’s this site about?
We’ve started this site and blog primarily as a way to keep in touch with those we love and those who are interested in our travels. However, it is also our personal opportunity to learn how to articulate and make sense of what we are doing and why we are doing it.
We hope that the information and opinion we post here will also be useful to others, even if it tells you what not to do! If it in any small way helps someone else to take that leap of faith, then it is a worthwhile pursuit.
Why The Spice Of Life Travels?
The spice of life is a nerdy reference to the science fiction novel Dune written by Frank Herbert, which was also famously made into a film of the same name by David Lynch.
Dune is the only planet in the universe upon which the spice is found. The point we are taking is that the spice is rare and so has extreme value. To us, The Spice of Life means that existing is relatively easy, but finding the spice to really live is the greatest challenge.
You will find 3 blog sections on this site (these are the 3 statements about the spice that the Princess Irulan makes at the beginning of the film). Hang in there, indulge us..!
Everyone needs to eat in order to survive, right?! Yes! And we bloomin’ well love stuffing our faces. This is where we will show you what weird, wonderful or damn right filthy (in a good or bad way!) things that we have seen or eaten.
This is the section where we will tell you our thoughts on certain themes – our amateur philosophical musings if you will!
OK, we aren’t going into space, but you get the point, this is the bit where we tell you where we have been and what we’ve been up to.
Oh and since you are at it check out this awesome Astral Projection tune sampling Dune!
