A CYCLONE threatens the South Coast – A travel diary

2018-07-04T14:26:07+00:00

When a Cyclone threatens South Australia In September we left Melbourne and hit the road to South Australia, it started off great but as we approached the boarder's things began to change. As we lay in bed listening to the pitter patter of rain on the roof, the van slowly being rocked by the wind, we joked about a storm brewing and listened to the crash of the high [...]

The story of buying mighty mo! This is a very well overdue post (oopsie! Sorry!), especially if you've been following our travels on Instagram! But here it is, the story of Mo! And her mighty make-over!! It’s been a well-known dream of ours to have a Campervan that we can use for full-time travel. In the UK that seemed near impossible, a decent one was well [...]

What our FIRST MONTH in Australia taught us! – A travel diary

2018-07-04T14:27:41+00:00

Our first month in Australia and what we've learnt! Whoa, where did July go?! We've been in Melbourne a full month now, and yes, we’ve been absent from here for the entire time. Sorry. So much has happened, I’m unsure where to begin! Melbourne is an absolutely fantastic city if there were more like this at home - I'd probably consider myself more of a city chic than a [...]

2018-07-04T14:28:17+00:00

How to deal with Jetlag! What is Jet lag? Everyone knows when you travel through the time zones you're at risk of getting jet lag, in fact, it's highly likely. There's tons of information on how to prevent it, but nobody ever talks about what jet lag is, or how it can affect your first week (or two!) of travel. One thing's for sure; we underestimated just how messed up [...]

2018-07-04T14:28:30+00:00

Our China Southern Review - a 4* Airline Choosing who we'd fly with from the UK to Australia wasn't a decision we took lightly; We wanted comfort within our budget and a nice long layover. We wanted to know that our luggage (if we chose to check any) was going to be safe but also that we were going to be safe - it was going to be a long [...]

Our SPONTANEOUS trip to the Edge of the World – A travel diary

2018-07-04T14:33:20+00:00

One of the hardest, yet best, decision I've ever made (so far) lead to one of the greatest summers we've ever had. To spontaneously quit my job. I was working in a sweet shop in my hometown and had grown to hate it. The same faces day in day out. It gave me itchy feet, made me want to see more than these four walls. The straw that broke the Camels back [...]

2018-07-04T14:34:12+00:00

The name often has children and adults alike giggling as they queue to enter; once you're inside it's no laughing matter. For those of you who are claustrophobic, this may not be the adventure for you. In the centre of England is the Peak District, and here you'll find The Devil's Arse Cave; or more commonly known as Peak Cavern.  We stumbled upon this gem whilst on a visit to Castleton; not [...]

Indulging in some Spanish Traditions We chose to celebrate the end of 2015 in my favourite little place; Galera. We discovered so much on this holiday from new viewpoints at the top of the mountains to the extent the Spanish will go to make you feel welcome.
