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…

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.

And what a fantastic choice it was; the mountain scenery…

Winter Wonderland in Switzerland

There’s nothing better than the weather report saying rain, and waking up to sunshine. It did however rain all night which meant fresh snow from about 900m elevation. We set off early towards Interlaken, Switzerland’s adventure Capital. It sits between two lakes and in the shadows of some of Switzerland’s most impressive peaks. It was…

Liechtenstein – big things come in small packages

We had our coldest night yet on our Europe Roadtrip with the temperature dropping below zero. It was so cold that the condensation on our ceiling froze solid and the metal bars had mini icicles hanging down. When we went to open the door to watch the sunrise over the lake and mountains we realised…
