Happy New Year! Ringing it in with 10 memorable moments over the last year.

Bangkok, Thailand

Happy New Year everyone! This year has been amazing for both Dee and I. We’ve managed to suspend our jobs (Dee permanently!), got our apartment rented out, possessions all packed and hopped on an airplane to explore the word! We’ve seen and done some pretty frickin awesome things and written about most of it. So here it is, what we think our top 10 things we did this year traveling.

The DVS top 10 of 2009


How could we not include our Tour de France experience in this? While it wasn’t the most enjoyable experience riding 50 km’s, half in the pitch black dark… it was a most memorable experience.

Newgrange, Ireland

Newgrange was one of the first ancient wonders. that we saw, and they were darn impressive. You could touch the mounds and walk in a wooden henge

Banksy vs. Bristol Museum

Banksy vs Bristol Museum was one of the best museums we’ve been to. Poor Ronald, why are you sitting on the ledge? Feeling guilty of peddling your death fries and enslaving people to crappy food?

Our targets

AK-47’s and Naughty Squirrels Who doesn’t want to shoot the real thing? The Ak47 we shot was probably held in some scared kids hands during the Cold War.

Thrope Park

Thorpe Park This ride is temporarily shut down for an essential clean up.

Oktoberfest 2009

Oktoberfest The full, Golden liquid cup of beer and friendly Belgium’s.

Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain

Guadi and Parc Guelle were amazing. Parc Guelle was probably one of the coolest pieces of art I’ve ever seen.

Get Loaded in the Park

Roni Size and Get Loaded in the Park. ’nuff said.


Eiffel Tower is on everyone’s list and we drank undercover in front of it. Unfortunately there was one regret.

Sun & Bass 2009

A week partying on Sardinia with 4 awesome friends and drum’n’bass. What more do you really need in a vacation? Sun and Bass was wicked.

Baden-Baden, Germany

And a special thank you to Dee’s Aunt and Uncle, Barbara and Artur, who live in Baden-BadenĀ  Germany. You welcomed us into your home not once, but twice! Both these times were on short notice and we really appreciate it!
