We left England last summer knowing that this would be our last few months of travelling. We've had four incredible years of adventure, throwing ourselves into new experiences and learning about different cultures and eating everything from burnt ramen (better than it sounds) to… Read more of "A bit of news"
It's been a while. A busy couple of months of remote living in Orkney, driving and camping around the coast of Scotland, spending time at home in London, watching two of our best friends get married in the countryside, and most recently heading back up to Edinburgh for the film… Read more of "I'm back!"
It's somehow been 3 years – 1096 days – since we queued up at the check-in desk at Heathrow with a couple of bags and one way tickets to Hong Kong. We'd spent the weeks before selling everything in our flat, saying goodbye to everyone we love. Not sure if it would turn out to be… Read more of "Day 1096"
We've been thinking about our 2017 travel plans a lot for the last few weeks and today they've finally all come together. This will probably be our last year of travelling full time. But it's going to be a good one. Here's what we'll be up to: January & February We've been in… Read more of "2017"
I'm writing this on the train to Bournemouth. We've packed up again, said goodbye to our families and we're off for round three. It's always bittersweet to leave home, I hate goodbyes and I’ve really enjoyed being back in England. But the anticipation of the next adventure is… Read more of "The next adventure"
It's been a while. The last few weeks have been busy. We said goodbye to San Pancho and Mexico after 6 months of sunshine, tacos and ranchera music. It's one of my favourite places and I've got lots more to share from our time there. Then we went to Phoenix and spent a long… Read more of "Home"
We recently passed our two-year travelversary (that's a thing right?). We've seen a lot in that time and travelled to different parts of the world, as a couple, with groups of friends, with family. We've been on buses and overnight trains, gone on road trips and camped, stayed in… Read more of "Travel tips from two years on the road"
Today we have officially been on the road for two years! It's hard to believe we've been travelling for TWO WHOLE YEARS, and yet it does feel like a long time. Memories of life in London, the 9–5 and the 393, are hazier now. Our second year away has been very different from our… Read more of "Day 731"
This morning we woke up before sunrise – which is super late here in Mexico now that the clocks have gone forward – and headed out for an iced coffee at our new favourite coffee shop, Cafe Mañana . Then we stopped by the weekly market to pick up leafy greens and quiche for lunch… Read more of "Right now"
Ten years ago, my philosophy was the more the better. I was moving almost every year and each time I packed everything up into boxes. Things that I knew I wouldn't need again, things that were broken. Sometimes even things that were literally rubbish. It was just easier than… Read more of "Minimalism"
We've found it difficult to figure out what to do this year. In January, Colin's long-term contract came to an end, which left us undecided about what to do next. Should we continue south to Ecuador and Columbia as planned? Or would it be cheaper to stay in Mexico? Should we add… Read more of "Making plans"
Understanding everything. That feeling when you walk out of the office on a Friday evening. Weekend trips home to see family. The endorphin hit of an early Sunday morning run. Snuggling up on our red sofa and watching movies on the projector. Green and Blacks sea salt milk… Read more of "Things I miss about home"
