Lockdown life in Sussex, England

We returned to the UK after two years backpacking, with the plan to work in a restaurant for 6-12 months, save up for our next trip and see friends and family, maybe even put some roots down. But things haven’t gone quite to plan. Corona virus came along and fucked things up. The restaurants we…

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…
