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…

Kayaking through the frozen sea in Northern Norway

After three months back in the Arctic we’d only managed to get out on the kayaks once and that was in the peak of winter. We had very limited daylight, the sun wasn’t rising at all so after a bit of a pink hue touched the clouds the sky quickly darkened. The sea was completely…

Volunteering as Lumberjacks in the Mosel Region | Germany

After four months in Asia we were pretty zapped by the heat, we still wanted to return to the Philippines but the flight price and duration weren’t very appealing so we just went on Skyscanner and searched cheap destinations from the Maldives. The cheap countries to fly to were Germany, France and Switzerland so we…

Best places to visit in Central Asia

We ended up spending almost two months in the Stan’s. Our adventures started in Almaty, Kazakhstan, working our way through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan and ending the trip in Uzbekistan. The area is still relatively untouched by tourism, but more so than in recent years so organising visas, day trips and accommodation is…

Exploring the badlands of Kyrgyzstan

One thing we hadn’t expected to see in Central Asia was red rock deserts but we were treated to a beautiful display along the southern shores of Issyk Kul Lake. We’d seen the desert as we drove to the ethnic festival and decided we had to come back and explore more of the area so…
