Exploring Cornwall’s Best Beaches

A nasty storm was due to hit the whole south west of England but we had two days of glorious sun before it arrived so we headed for the coast. We made an early start as it was bank holiday weekend and we wanted to try and find a free parking space. We headed towards…

Sunsets, Snakes and Wild Horses | Bodmin Moor and Tintagel

We crossed into Cornwall for our first time and did a few chores in Bude which took forever because so many people wanted to compliment Helga. It’s like having a bloody Lamborghini with how much attention she gets. First a young couple pulled over to ask questions about her, then an old chap came for…

Exploring North Devon | England

Once we exited Exmoor we continued along the coast and headed for a beach I wanted to visit. We prefer to try and find free parking and just walk a little further, so that’s exactly what we did – parking up in the quaint village of Berrynarbor. Signs declared it the winner and runner up…

Roadtrip to the New Forest and a wild storm | England

BEST DESTINATIONS FOR HIKERS WHO LOVE THE MOUNTAINS

We hadn’t really seen mountains before we started our travels back in 2008 and we certainly had no idea what it felt like to explore the great outdoors. It was something we’d never tried but we soon realised the beach towns didn’t give us the same amount of joy that a long hike through jungle…

Highlights from two years backpacking around the world

In January 2018 we set off for another long stint abroad. This time we wanted to visit some new countries and return to a few favourites. So here’s a roundup of what we got up to and some of our best photos from the trip. NORWAY After spending a month roadtripping around Norway and falling…
