Hey guys, we want to show our appreciation to all you loyal readers out there and so we’ve decided we’re going to start sending postcards out to randomly picked readers each time we do a post run (usually about once every country we hit). If you’d like to be up with a chance of getting a little souvenir from abroad, fill in your details in the secure form below (don’t worry, we’re not going to do a “Sony” and let hackers get these details). We can guarantee that your post address isn’t going to be used for spam or anything like that either. The last thing we ask is that if you’re on facebook, please “like” our blog’s fan page – you can do it very easily in that little panel on the right of our blog plage.
That’s all there is to it. Obviously the sooner you put in your details, the sooner you’ll be legible for the draw. Good Luck!

â€œBastioâ€ â€“ The first of the â€œRandom but Trueâ€ posts we plan to start featuring.
This is a short blog post about this awesome tattoo we came across at one of the hostels we stayed in during the trip. It was on a girlâ€™s leg, and the simplicity of it instantly grabbed our attention. We had to find out the story behind it, and once we did, we had to share.
She had a friend who was going out with a girl he didnâ€™t like and he wanted to break up with her. But he was convinced to delay the breakup by one day since the soon-to-be-ex girlfriend was a tattoo artist. That last evening, the boyfriend and the other girl broke into the soon-to-be-exâ€™s tattoo parlour and stole her tattoo gun for the night along with some ink and all that. Back at her place (and probably after a lot of rum) they gave each other a tattoo before returning the tattoo gun to the soon-to-be-exâ€™s shop. This was the awesome artwork the guy did.
We loved that tattoo, but were still intrigued by the word written underneath it and asked what it meant or stood for. The girlâ€™s response? â€œIt says â€˜Bastioâ€™. Thatâ€™s the name of my friend. He thought his artwork was so cool he signed it.â€
