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…

Sledging on the kitchen table in the Dolomites

Italy’s second chance didn’t go too well; they still drove like hooligans. We entered Northern Italy via the beautiful Natisone Valley which had rusty coloured forested slopes and a gushing river. It was a lovely and peaceful drive but soon enough we joined the main road. From then on we just passed through town after…

The town of conical roofed houses

We drove along the arch of Italy’s sole, stopping at a beach for a leisurely stroll while Craig attempted to save giant jellyfish that had been washed up. Then we headed inland and took a wonderful road through the countryside. Fields were being seeded with grass and varied from freshly churned mud to fluorescent green…

A little drive through Southern Italy

Cave dwellings in southern Italy

Half of Matera’s population lived in cave dwellings, called Sassi, until the 1950’s. The Sassi have been inhabited since the Paleolithic age and were brought to public attention when Carlo Levi’s book, ‘Christ stopped at Eboli’ was published in 1946. He described the poverty and poor conditions they lived in. The book shamed the authorities…

Italy – the India of the West

After a 10 hour ferry from Greece, we reached the top of Italy’s heel at Bari. An announcement told us to head down to the car deck, so off we all went. To get to the lower deck though, we had to squeeze our way through trucks. The gaps between them were the width of…
