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…

Two crazy fools road tripping around Europe

When we began our Europe road trip back in May 2014 I told Craig I wanted to do a video every time we entered a new country…Craig wasn’t keen. I thought it would be a great idea to do each video in the accent of that country…Craig decided he didn’t like that idea either and…

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…

An amusing experience with the Poliisi

We were rather surprised when we first arrived in Finland; all the lakes had red water, instead of the beautiful azure ones in Norway and Germany. But, here they have sand instead of rocks, which means a nice soft beach (I’m grateful for this after slipping on a slimey rock in Norway and falling into…

Finnish Sauna – Go nude, or go home

The sauna is a way of life in Finland, it’s not a luxury like in the rest of the world and the locals use them at least once a week. We couldn’t leave Finland without visiting one, but I’ve read that most of them are separate sex, so I’d have to sit in a room…

A fed bear is a dead bear

While in Kuusamo I spotted a leaflet advertising watching wild bears from a hide. It was over our budget, but I would LOVE to see these beautiful beasts in their natural environment. I asked a lady about it, as I expected your chances of seeing a bear to be very low. But she said they…

Attack of the flying ants in Finland

We’ve gotten used to living with flying things in Scandinavia; Mosquitos, midges, horse flies, and standard flies. But tonight we experienced the flying ant for the first time – worst night so far!! After a wonderful night at a beautiful lake last night with no flying insects (this is a rare and joyful experience), tonight…

Meeting Santa Claus in Lapland

I’m a big fan of Christmas, so once I found out Santa lived in Finland’s Lapland, it was on my list of places to visit. He’s situated along the Arctic Circle at Rovaniemi in The Santa Claus Village. We’ve been in Finland for 2 days now and after the two small Reindeer we saw in…

6 years on the road!!

On the 4th of August 2008, Craig and I embarked on what we said would be a couple of years (if we were lucky) travelling the world. Starting in Australia, we got a serious case of the travel bug epidemic – it appears to be incurable, and the only way to ease the symptoms is…
