Returning to our old stomping grounds | Arisaig, Scotland

We lived in Scotland back in 2014, it was an impromptu decision after quitting our job (which included accommodation) on the spot. The next day we packed our life into our little banger of a car and drove to the New Forest to camp in a tent while we figured things out. We ended up…

Exploring the Jurassic Coast | England

Our alarm went off at 6am and after a few snoozes we reluctantly peeled our heavy eyes open. What a terrible night sleep that was, the wind made it feel like our we were in one of those plane simulators, rocking around in turbulence. As much as I wanted to lie in bed all day…

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…

Visiting an idyllic sandbank in The Maldives

I’m a sucker for a sandbank, a slither of sand rising out of the sea, a new island forming and more reason for the Maldivian’s to laugh in the face of global warming. We asked a few locals if they thought the Maldives would be covered by sea in the future and they confidently said…

Dog Bites, Rabies and a Secret Beach | Sri Lanka

To the west of Mirissa is Secret Beach which obviously isn’t a secret anymore but it was still a very pretty spot. There were actually two beaches back to back, one totally calm and shallow with rocks and fish visible in the clear water and the other wild and wavy but with dreamy turquoise and…

Blue Whale Watching and Dreamy Sunsets in Mirissa | Sri Lanka

Mirissa is a hip beach town about an hour away from Unnawatuna. It’s the perfect place to kickback and relax but its also a great base to see the worlds largest mammal – The Blue Whale. To see the whales we needed to go on a boat trip which cost about $30 per person and…

Exploring the Temples of Bagan | Myanmar

There’s something very special and yet very creepy about exploring the ancient temples of Bagan at sunrise. It’s eerily dark and quiet outside with just the sound of bats wings flapping over your head and the scurrying of rodents on the stone floors as you walk inside the temples. Narrow stairways lead up to the…
