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…

The start of our Great British Roadtrip

In early March we finally moved into Helga, our campervan full time. It wasn’t the smoothest moving in day as our boiler leaked water everywhere and our indicator stopped working so we had to wave our arm out the window which was highly embarrassing. But, she’s been a cozy home for us during lockdown in…

Corfe Castle, Coastal Hikes and Curious Alpacas

We had another early wake up and headed straight to Corfe Castle to catch the sunrise. It was -4° outside and the ground was covered in a crunchy white frost which made it look like a monochrome photo. The castle was built over 1000 years ago atop a prominent hill, so we headed up a…

The town sits in a lush green valley surrounded by red rock formations. The buildings even match the scenery with adobe houses…

Wild storms and glowing rocks at Monument Valley | Arizona

It was a bit out of our way to visit Monument Valley but we didn’t do the area justice 9 years ago as we were too budget conscious to pay the $20 entrance fee. So this time we headed back and storms followed us the whole way. You can get some views for free from…

Boating and hiking around Lake Tahoe | Nevada

The sun pierced through the gaps in our curtains, waking us early so we could hit the road towards California. Our only plan was to head south to Lake Tahoe and we ended up on some very lonely roads. One of which had a sign for a ghost town 4 miles up a dirt road…
