Returning to the jaw dropping Sawtooths | Idaho

As much as we always want to explore new places, we also love returning to our favourite spots and Idaho is one of them. It was a hell of a long, lonely drive heading west from Wyoming, through Montana and then finally into the Famous Potato State. We passed ranches with cowboys corralling their cattle…

Exploring some of Colorado’s finest lakes

After driving through a snow blizzard our road descended into a wide valley and the sky cleared to reveal one of Colorado’s greatest views of the ‘fourteeners’. It’s the highest concentration of mountains over fourteen thousand feet in the lower 48 and made quite the spectacular backdrop to the small town of Buena Vista. Further…

The red rocks of Sedona to the giant Saguaro Cacti | Arizona

Sedona has become a really popular destination in Arizona and it’s set up for tourists with plenty of souvenir shops and Wild West style bars, but it’s the surroundings that draw people here. The town sits in a lush green valley surrounded by red rock formations. The buildings even match the scenery with adobe houses…

From the mountains to the outback | Exploring central Oregon

We had a good start to Oregon with our first glimpse of one of North America’s mighty peaks – Mount Hood. A cloud was lightly wrapped around its surface but it gradually grew in size until the mountain vanished. We drove up another pass, received more snow and then headed down, we couldn’t hike in…

Converting a workers van into a tiny home in four days

We parked our newly bought van along the busy street of our Airbnb and headed inside for a very late dinner. It’s the first van we’ve owned with an alarm system so that was comforting but it didn’t stop me worrying that we’d wake up, look outside and find it had been stolen. I literally…

Arriving in Vancouver and buying our new home on wheels

It was a hell of a journey to get from Northern Norway to Vancouver, Canada. We caught practically every mode of public transport possible and spent 6 uncomfortable hours laying on a hard, cold floor in Oslo airport. When we arrived in Seattle the airport was a shambles, immigration took nearly two hours and we…

Our final days in Portugal |Exploring the coast and Wild Camping

We made an effort to walk a different part of the Algarve’s coastline on our days off and for our last trip we explored the area near Praia De São Rafael. There were two little beaches to the east and then we turned back and walked west along the coastal trail. The sea wasn’t crystal…

The end of the road | Key West

The all American road leading through the Florida Keys looks spectacular from the sky. I’ve only googled that mind you but as soon as I saw the photos of the road I declared that we had to drive the legendary route. It actually wasn’t as spectacular to drive as we’d hoped. The bridges were extremely…

A walk on the wild side | Florida

After having dinner in a parking area we had two cop cars pull up behind us shining their full beams at us like laser beams and burning our retinas. We hadn’t done anything wrong so we just sat there and continued to eat our candy. They called out on their microphone stating that they were…
