Misty mountains in Snowdonia National Park | Wales

I find it hard to travel slowly when there’s a place I’m really keen to visit and I just want to get there as soon as possible. North Wales, mainly Snowdonia has been that place for me. We’ve visited a couple times before and I just love the mountains there and that’s something our roadtrip…

The western Brecon Beacon’s and Llyn Y Fan Fach

We really felt like we wanted to find a quiet spot for a few days to relax so we headed to the western corner of Brecon Beacons National Park. A fairly narrow lane wiggled it’s way up and down some hills to a beautiful location beside a river, perfect. There were two other vans camping…

Hiking and wild swimming in Dartmoor National Park | Cornwall

Our first stop in Dartmoor National Park was a hike to Black Tor and the Meldon Reservoir. The weather was very iffy and it didn’t take long for the rain to catch up with us. We hid under some trees but the rain was so heavy we were hardly getting any protection. We decided that…

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…

Incredible coastal hikes in Exmoor National Park | England

We chugged our way from the bottom of the valley all the way up to the rolling pastures. A winding lane led us to a carpark high above the sea where we hoped to camp for the night without any trouble. The view was incredible so after taking some photos we set off on our…

Exploring the rivers and moors in Exmoor National Park

We made our way into Exmoor National Park, a place I knew very little about which meant we were pleasantly surprised once we started exploring. Our first hike was to the popular Tarr Steps which is a medieval bridge made of huge stones slabs. We crossed the bridge where each stone beneath our feet weighed…

Roadtrip to the New Forest and a wild storm | England

“Let’s play a game Lauren…guess how many cars are behind Helga?” I roared with laughter, it was our first roadtrip in our 30 year old campervan and I peered in my mirror to see a queue of cars. Moments later a couple of pensioners squeezed into what could only be described as a drivable bobsleigh…
