8 years travelling the world

The lovely Danielle and Mat from Exploring Alternatives asked to interview us about our nomadic lifestyle and how we’ve managed to fund 8 years on the road. They’ve put together an awesome video which you can watch here: You can check out their other great videos, blogs and photos on the attachments below. They’re YouTube…

The best of our Europe Roadtrip

Looking back at the photos we took on our Europe roadtrip make us wish we were back on the road. I might of complained on hikes of being exhausted and sweaty but each and every one was worth the huff and puff for the incredible views they revealed. We’ve browsed through and picked our favourite…

Life in our campervan | One crazy Europe roadtrip

So, 7 months and 23 countries later, and we are back on British soil just in time for Christmas. Europe has blown us away, it’s right on our doorstep and just waiting to be explored beyond the much visited cities. It’s the varied cultures, diverse scenery and cute villages that have wowed us and it’s…

Farewell Croatia, you were incredible!

What a gem of a country Croatia turned out to be. So much so that we found ourselves comparing it with Norway for its consistent beauty and scenic drives. I think it’s the first country we’ve visited that we’ve done or seen something exciting every single day. We’ve explored walled old towns, driven along spectacular…

A creepy look inside a porn lords abandoned Palace Hotel

We came across a very interesting sight on Krk Island in Northern Croatia; The grand Haludovo Palace Hotel, which is also known as the Penthouse Adriatic Club Casino. Sounds pretty swanky huh? But it hasn’t had a paying customer in over a decade. The owner was the founder of Penthouse Magazine, Bob Guccione, and his…

17,000km later and we made it to Plitvice Lakes

The main highlight of this national park is the 16 interconnected lakes that drop down over 8km. It’s been high on our list of places to visit on this trip, and after over a week of sunshine, it was totally overcast when we arrived! It was also bitterly cold at a mere 6 degrees, so…

Relaxing sea songs and squelchy mud baths

Zadar is home to a very unique thing; The Sea Organ. An architect put tubes and pipes under the concrete steps that lead into the sea as an experiment, and boy did it work! As the waves slap against the wall it creates it’s own music. We sat on the steps and listened to the…

More jaw dropping views from Croatia

I’ve seen numerous photos of Croatia’s Plitvice lakes; their usually on websites displaying breathtaking places you didn’t know existed in the world. They instantly made it onto my list of places to visit, but I hadn’t heard much about Krka National Park, further South. I’d read it had some of Croatia’s most impressive scenery, but…

Giant crater lakes and Croatia’s highest mountains

The Biokovo mountain range seemed to just shoot up from Croatia’s coastline. The lower slopes were forested, but the vast majority was steep, grey rock rising over 1000m with sheer edges. It forms a wall along the coast and plateaus off at the top with numerous bumpy peaks including Croatia’s highest mountain at 1762m. We…

Incredible coastal drives in Croatia

There’s a 10km section along Croatia’s coastline that belongs to Bosnia. We’re not covered on our insurance to drive there, even though it’s a tiny, tiny section to drive, with our luck we’d probably crash. A bit like how we crashed in Hungary, the only country in Europe that fines you if you have an…

The walled city of Dubrovnik

Arriving in Croatia from Italy, was like leaving Delhi for the Himalayas. Even the ferry was organised and calm; as we arrived in Dubrovnik everyone waited patiently in line and a staff member directed us out. As opposed to arriving in Italy with no staff so everyone honked and used aggression to overtake people. We…
