Lockdown life in Sussex, England

We returned to the UK after two years backpacking, with the plan to work in a restaurant for 6-12 months, save up for our next trip and see friends and family, maybe even put some roots down. But things haven’t gone quite to plan. Corona virus came along and fucked things up. The restaurants we…

Cycling to the Valley Of Kings, Luxor | Egypt

Luxor is said to be like Cairo but a smaller, nicer version. That’s debatable – we really didn’t like the place. The city sits on the east bank of the Nile but we opted to stay on the calmer West Bank which was a great decision in the end. A public ferry connects the two…

The Pyramids Of Giza | Egypt

The pyramids of Giza were built to last eternity, and the fact that they’ve been standing strong for 4500 years is testament to that. Egypt’s pharaohs were thought to become gods once they passed away so to prepare them for the next world, temples were built along with these grand pyramids to house their tombs….

Paragliding over Ölüdeniz | Turkey

Ölüdeniz is one of the top paragliding destinations in Turkey so we signed ourselves up to do a tandem jump off the 1960m Mount Baba. On our way to the office our driver pointed to the sky where a dozen or so paraglider’s looked like a flock of birds. We were piled into a mini…

Ghost towns, Ölüdeniz Beach and Saklikent Gorge | Turkey

We based ourselves in Fethiye to explore the surrounding area as there was a lot to see and do. The main area we wanted to visit was Ölüdeniz’s blue lagoon which I found out we could actually hike to via the ghost town of Kayaköy. We began by walking up some steep roads behind Fethiye…

Wadi Rum 4×4 Tour and Desert Camp | Jordan

We’ve seen a lot of deserts on our travels, and to be honest I don’t think anything will be as memorable or impressive as Utah and Arizona in the States. So I wondered if it was worth visiting Wadi Rum desert in Jordan and began google searching “if I’ve seen Utah or the Sahara is…

Hiking in Kananaskis Country | Canada

Even though we’d visited the Rockies twice before we were still excited to return and hike some different trails. For our first few days we based ourselves in Canmore and did a few local hikes. The trails were within our beloved Kananaskis Country that I talked about in my previous post, but because they were…

Our winter season in the Norwegian Arctic

After almost four months working in Norway it’s time for us to head off and get back to travelling. We‘re heading to Vancouver Canada, to buy a new van so we can do our third roadtrip across North America. We haven’t lived in a van since our Alaska to Florida trip in 2016 so we…
