Scotland, and the highlands in particular, is famous for its numerous castles. Many of them were home to the clans that ruled Scotland getting in numerous, bloody battles several hundred years ago. Nowadays visitors to Scotland, whether history lovers or not, love exploring these beautiful castles in Scotland whether they’re in ruins or have been lovingly restored. Here is my pick of the best castles in Scotland but I’m sure there are more! Do you ...

How to sell everything you own and raise money for travel!

Guys. I can’t quite believe that we're now in Canada. AND that we'll be living here for the next 2 years (unless we hate it...). It’s not like I’ve been waiting for this for a year or anything… (oh, wait). Anyway, given that we’ve upped sticks and moved across the Atlantic, we had to sort out our flat and sell everything we own for our travels. Well, almost everything. We still own some stuff (like ...

The most fun you can have for $11 in Florida

Florida has a reputation for great beaches and it's easy to see why. Yes, they're golden and the seas are blue and warm but Florida isn't all about the coast. Head inland and to the north for something rather special: Ichetucknee Springs. Ichetucknee Springs State Park is a huge Florida State Park and National Natural Landmark towards the north of the state of Florida. At the heart of it is Ichetucknee River. This 6 mile long river ...

Watching an actual rocket launch at The Kennedy Space Centre

When Thom saw there was a rocket launch at the Kennedy Space Centre scheduled for March, it was decided that we'd aim to make it to one. Rocket launches are delayed and rescheduled quite a lot due to all sorts of factors. It could be because of technical difficulties, weather restraints or something else entirely. The rocket launch we eventually attended had been rescheduled too but it worked in our favour. Having whizzed round the ...

9 of Austin’s best food trucks

Austin is a city that's well renowned for its food trucks. It's believed that there are over 1,000 food trucks scattered across the city. We sure saw a lot during our visit to Austin! That does mean, however, that deciding which are Austin's best food trucks (and therefore the ones you should eat at) is a demanding task. Don't worry though, I've picked out five Austin food trucks you really, really shouldn't miss! Gourdough's Big ...

The best scenic drive in Moab

Whilst most people in Moab are probably there to visit Arches National Park or Canyonlands National Park, there’s plenty of beautiful scenery to see around Moab and outside of the National Parks. There are several different scenic drives in Moab (all well signposted) but one of the best has to be the Upper Colorado Scenic Byway 128 to Cisco. For days when it’s just too hot to be walking around the National Parks then jump ...

Books I’ve read recently and loved

I've learned quite a lot from these past six months of travelling (I can't believe it's been six months since we left the UK!). I've learnt that spending time outside is extremely important to me, that powdered milk is a satisfactory alternative to real milk when you have no fridge, and that I love reading and should make more time for it. I started off the trip by downloading a few books on my phone ...

Best stylish waterproof coats for autumn

Since I've been in Vancouver it's been pretty much non-stop sunshine. I'm definitely not complaining about it since it's made me feel like I'm permanently on holiday, I have the best tan I've ever had in my life and my new job means I'm always outside so this weather is much appreciated! But, as I'm reminded time and time again by Vancouverites, the rain will come and when it does I'm going to need a waterproof ...

What to do in El Paso

Sitting on the border (quite literally) of America and Mexico is El Paso. When we finally (read here to see what happened made it when we tried to get to El Paso & through border controls without our passports...) made it to El Paso we decided to stick around and check out the city a while. After all, a city on a border that appears in the news almost every week is sure to have some interesting ...
