So you're disillusioned with the 9-5 grind. You could just chuck it all in to go travelling. Lots of people do. At least lots of young, single people do. Married couples in their 30s don't.

In a final act of rebellion before being swallowed up by early-middle age syndrome Ben and Emma Heywood put their careers on hold indefinitely to go travelling together, determined to go and see some of the world's lesser-visited destinations, from Madagascar to Sumatra. Can proper travelling be done with a partner in tow? Can it be done even if you've left it a decade late?

And most importantly, can you survive the legendary chicken buses of the third world without a) putting your back out or b) mentioning the word "divorce"?
