My favourite parks in London

Despite being a pretty large, sprawling city London does have a lot of greenery. In fact, it’s said that around 47% of London is green space! How cool is that? Almost half of this busy city is actually a park with trees and wildlife. There’s so much green space in London that some people are campaigning to make London an Urban National Park. It’s easy to forget that London is so green when you spend ...

Going off road with the new Vauxhall MOKKA X

Since I’ve been living in London I’ve missed having a car. During the week it’s not too bad. Getting the tube into central London avoids congestion charges and means I don’t have to be fully awake for another half hour or so. But come the weekend? That’s when I really, really miss it. I miss the ease of being able to pack a boot full of gear for adventures and not being restricted by a ...

We’re going to China & Hong Kong!

I’m off to China and Hong Kong this afternoon and I’m SO excited! This is the longest trip away I’ve had since South America 2 years ago; even though it’s just two weeks. We’ve also had these flights booked for about a year. We found a great deal last December where return flights to Hong Kong were just £316 so snapped them up pretty quickly. Planning a trip to China hasn’t been easy. With just ...

You’ll want to live out of a van after seeing these pictures

Since our trip to Australia where we stayed in a little campervan for a few days I’ve become obsessed with the idea of living out of a van. Not forever - I don’t think I could handle that - but for a while whilst I’m travelling somewhere. I’ve started following loads of Vanlifers on instagram, and watching endless YouTube videos about how to convert a van into a tiny home. Basically I’m going to make ...

7 Places to go to get the best london views (with some you’ve never thought of!)

Did you know that there’s such a thing as a protected view in London? The law protects certain views of important sights or historic buildings, and you can't construct tall buildings in the sight line of places like St. Paul’s Cathedral. That means there are plenty of places where you can get beautiful views of London’s skyline. You don’t always have to climb up a load of stairs or take a lift 30 floors up to see ...

10 Reasons You Should Travel Along The Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago, or The Way of St James, is the name given to any number of pilgrimage routes which lead to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Many hundreds of people follow the Camino de Santiago every year for both spiritual reasons and just as a great way to see the beautiful scenery of northern Spain. Traditionally you’d walk, following the blue and ...

Kangaroo Spotting in the Blue Mountains

Whilst travelling around and camping in the Blue Mountains we saw so many kangaroos! Every time we saw them we just had to stop and watch them for a while. Kangaroos may be so numerous they're a bit of a pest in Australia, but for us Brits they're pretty impressive! This video lets you in on our camping disater, free campsites in the Blue Mountains and the scenic Three Sisters - probably the most famous ...

Cheese and wine feasts in the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley in Australia is about 120km north of Sydney making it a great destination for a weekend trip or an addon to your New South Wales itinerary. It's most commonly known for its wineries although there's a great food scene there too with local cheese, chocolate and other producers growing in size. Whilst many of the hotels in the area are pretty luxurious, it's possible to visit the Hunter Valley on a buget too. ...

Cooking Vietnamese Street Food with Jamie Oliver

I love trying out new recipes in the kitchen and will always try and make time for cooking dinner rather than getting a take away (unless I come back from after work drinks when toast and peanut butter will do just fine!). When I’m abroad I want to eat all the food, but I also want to know how to make it back home and the cookery school we went to in Peru, Sky Kitchen, ...

Exploring Sydney

I filmed a little during my visit to Sydney (I also managed to delete some of the clips before putting them on my laptop). If you want to see more of the Coogee to Bondi beach walk and Sydney's stunning skyline, then give it a watch! See my one week itinerary for New South Wales
