Why you should go glamping

You guys know I love camping, but for those times when I feel like adding a touch of luxury to my adventures, I turn to glamping. Made up from the words “camping” and “glamourous”, glamping is glamorous camping. You get the thrill and excitement of sleeping somewhere wild for the night, but don’t have to worry about rocks under your sleeping bag and bent tent pegs. If you’re not quite ready to go all out ...

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.

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 ...

5 Great Night Time London Adventures

The countryside and the wilderness aren’t the only places you can find adventure. There’s plenty of adventure in the cities, especially in cities as big in London. London adventures come in all shapes and sizes requiring varying amounts of planning. Adventures don’t just happen during the day of course, and although I’m much more of a morning lark than a night owl, sometimes night time adventures can be the best ones. I’ve been working with ...

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 ...
