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…

Our final roadtrip video around Europe

Living in a van makes us go abit loopy, when there’s no TV we are the only entertainment and making these silly videos each time we entered a new country certainly made us laugh. While I always attempted to do a local accent (usually sounding German) Craig decided to do Chinese and Indian accents, for…

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…

Quaint villages and quirky caf├ęs in France

After the festive markets we drove north to Vitre. The town looked like a movie set; wonky half timbered houses were leaning towards the narrow alley and slanting down the roads. Roofs were rickety and all various shapes and sizes. We followed some cobbled lane ways and arrived in front of a huge gothic chateau….

Christmas markets in France

I adore Christmas, but we’ve ended up having quite a few of them abroad in very un-festive, sweaty and smelly countries eating a variety of curries and drinking iced coffee, not that thats a bad thing, we just prefer snow and mince pies. Europe has a lot of fab Christmas markets though and annoyingly we’ve…

Wild Flamingos and pink lakes in France

We headed south to Camargue regional park; a vast expanse of wetland between a river and the sea. It’s home to many migratory birds, wild horses and big black bulls, but we were only there for one thing – the Flamingo. As soon as we approached the park a menacing black cloud filled the horizon….

Villages lost in time and the stubborn French

The south of France is proving to be quite the catch. The villages we’ve visited have been extremely rustic and untouched. The houses are made of stones with chipped wooden shutters, lots of narrow alleys and cobbled roads. Gordes was a very interesting village, it was tiered and built on a rocky hill. The houses…

A slice of the American Midwest in Southern France

Europe’s largest canyon, Verdon Gorge slices through a limestone plateau for 25km. It’s deepest point is 700m and it’s narrowest at a mere 8m, it’s not quite the Grand Canyon, but it’s a good runner up. A scenic road leads around the canyon offering view points along the way. We passed the large Saint Croix…

From the French Alps to the Sunny South

We strolled around the medieval old town of Annecy with its sweet canals cutting through the town. Archways led from the narrow cobbled streets across to bridges. Under one of the archways was a load of rubbish all piled up with plastic bags, then we saw a face staring at us amongst the bags. She…
