How we turned a white van into our home in 2 weeks at -20C in a Home Depot parking lot

In early 2017 we bought a van. And not just any van, this van was to become our home for the next 5 months as we travelled around the USA and moved to Vancouver. This post has been a long time coming and I've finally got down to writing about how we went from a van full of metal shelving into a home in 2 weeks.  Converting a van into a campervan isn't such a ...

Glencoe photography: The best Glencoe landscapes for photographers

Glencoe in Scotland is bloomin' beautiful! It's one of those Scottish landscapes that will blow you away with the mountains, lochs, glens and, if you're lucky, stags posing for photos. Whilst a lot of people consider the Isle of Skye to be the best place in Scotland for photography, I'd argue Glencoe is even better. It's easier to get to for one, being just a couple of hours away from both Glasgow and Edinburgh! If ...

Things to do when you can’t travel

It's not a great time to be a travel blogger right now since people can't y'know, travel?! And that's okay. This not travelling thing is for the best (in many ways, like how much better off would we be environmentally if we couldn't?!). But I'm also battling with the fact that I LOVE travel like I'm sure many of you do. At the moment in BC, we're still allowed out into the mountains as long ...
