Incredible coastal hikes in Exmoor National Park | England

We chugged our way from the bottom of the valley all the way up to the rolling pastures. A winding lane led us to a carpark high above the sea where we hoped to camp for the night without any trouble. The view was incredible so after taking some photos we set off on our…

Exploring the rivers and moors in Exmoor National Park

We made our way into Exmoor National Park, a place I knew very little about which meant we were pleasantly surprised once we started exploring. Our first hike was to the popular Tarr Steps which is a medieval bridge made of huge stones slabs. We crossed the bridge where each stone beneath our feet weighed…

The start of our Great British Roadtrip

In early March we finally moved into Helga, our campervan full time. It wasn’t the smoothest moving in day as our boiler leaked water everywhere and our indicator stopped working so we had to wave our arm out the window which was highly embarrassing. But, she’s been a cozy home for us during lockdown in…

Corfe Castle, Coastal Hikes and Curious Alpacas

We had another early wake up and headed straight to Corfe Castle to catch the sunrise. It was -4° outside and the ground was covered in a crunchy white frost which made it look like a monochrome photo. The castle was built over 1000 years ago atop a prominent hill, so we headed up a…

Exploring the Jurassic Coast | England

Our alarm went off at 6am and after a few snoozes we reluctantly peeled our heavy eyes open. What a terrible night sleep that was, the wind made it feel like our we were in one of those plane simulators, rocking around in turbulence. As much as I wanted to lie in bed all day…

Roadtrip to the New Forest and a wild storm | England

“Let’s play a game Lauren…guess how many cars are behind Helga?” I roared with laughter, it was our first roadtrip in our 30 year old campervan and I peered in my mirror to see a queue of cars. Moments later a couple of pensioners squeezed into what could only be described as a drivable bobsleigh…

We bought a Vintage Campervan!

We did something a little crazy – we bought a new campervan. We actually bought it in Septmeber but these blogs are churning out slower than a snail in wet concrete. We’ve been keeping our eyes on the market for a while and then I spotted this beauty. A 1989 Talbot Express Rambler who’s the…

Lockdown life in Sussex, England

We returned to the UK after two years backpacking, with the plan to work in a restaurant for 6-12 months, save up for our next trip and see friends and family, maybe even put some roots down. But things haven’t gone quite to plan. Corona virus came along and fucked things up. The restaurants we…

BEST DESTINATIONS FOR HIKERS WHO LOVE THE MOUNTAINS

We hadn’t really seen mountains before we started our travels back in 2008 and we certainly had no idea what it felt like to explore the great outdoors. It was something we’d never tried but we soon realised the beach towns didn’t give us the same amount of joy that a long hike through jungle…
