Hello from the UK! We've just returned from an epic, year-long RV trip around the USA and Canada, which saw us cover over 25,000 miles from coast-to-coast. The whole trip made us appreciate just how huge the region is and while we ticked many national parks, cities and coastlines off our bucket-list, there was plenty more we didn't get to see, including Hawaii. We'd love...

On the 3rd of March 2013, we left the UK on a one-way ticket to New Zealand, clutching brand-new carry-on size backpacks and little else besides a modest savings account and a desire to break free from London life and see the world. We thought we’d be gone for two years but somehow, a decade later, we’ve managed to carve a nomadic life for ourselves....

After spending a year travelling the USA and Canada in our RV, Maj, we've developed a love of the great outdoors. There's nothing better than parking - or pitching - up at a national park, in the middle of the desert or forest, without another soul in sight. As we learnt during our trip, having the right gear can make all the difference to your...

If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, then make sure you don't leave South Africa off your travel bucket list. While the country is certainly known for its wildlife safaris, our previous trip to South Africa also featured remarkable hikes along Lion’s Head and a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. On top of these land-based excursions, South Africa does offer...

Back in the not-so-distant past, when Covid was keeping borders firmly shut and planes grounded, I used to dream of Southeast Asia. I’d try to recall, as vividly as possible, the soupy heat and mosaiced temples; passion-fruit shakes and foot massages; the bath-water beaches and macaque-filled forests. More than that, I longed for the feeling I only get from being in Asia, the endless freedom...

After all the Covid madness, it feels like travel is making a proper comeback in 2022. In March, we finally made it to Asia, spending seven blissful weeks in Thailand and a month in Bali, followed by a spontaneous trip to Australia for our first taste of van life and a Perth housesit. I can’t tell you how good it’s been to have our freedom...

We’re itching to get back to Asia when travel finally returns so, when the Tourism Authority of Thailand asked us to share memories of our time in the Land of Smiles as part of their #ThrowbackThailand campaign, we were happy to oblige. With that in mind, here’s a look back at our experiences volunteering in Thailand and projects we’d love to volunteer with in the...

Hello from our Airbnb apartment in the Algarve! At the start of 2020, we never thought we’d end up back in Portugal but this year has thrown everybody some curve balls. Right now, we’re just happy to be away from the UK Covid winter and able to afford a short-term apartment which has everything we need to work in. So, how did we find it?...

Got a layover in Beijing coming up? Wondering where to start? Beijing, China, is one of the largest and busiest cities in the world. As such, there is so much culture to soak up, history to learn and views to enjoy of both ancient and modern sites. And with a possible 72 hours of visa free entry to fill on a stopover, here are five...

So far, 2020 has not been a great year for travel. While the Coronavirus pandemic rages and the fallout spreads around the world, we’re continuing to work and housesit in the UK. Winter has been tough on my wanderlust though and one of the bright spots on the horizon was our Easter European road trip, which was set to begin in Italy. Given the events...
