“Quick! Grab your camera! Snap a shot of the Colorado sign coming up! Wait………..why the hell are we in Colorado?” More than twenty four hours earlier, we had been spray-painting Cadillacs in the middle of a dusty wasteland. After speeding out of Amarillo, Texas, we made really good time in pursuit of our end destination, Santa […]
It was freezing cold in St. Louis as we pulled away at 5am to set off for a long day of driving. Holly the Basset Hound was squeezed into a small space on the back seat, next to some large cooking pots, a duvet and a plastic set of drawers. Having taken back ownership of […]
I’ll come right out and say it now: I am not an avid app user. Half of the apps I have downloaded on my phone, I hardly ever use (with the exception of my social media accounts). This means that whenever I travel to a new place, I always tend to get all of my […]
I’ve been trying to think of something poignant to write to mark two years of setting off on my round-the-world trip. Truth is, I don’t know what to say or how to say it without sounding like a pompous fool. Friday marked the two year anniversary of me getting on a plane with a one-way […]

The last two months have been a blur of fast-paced travel, Christmas festivities, road trips and lots of nose-blowing. That last one is because of allergies and colds which have come about because of the […]
If there’s one thing that we seem to be good at, it’s being in the right place at the right time. It’s happened to us on several occasions these last two years, but no occasion was as rewarding as when we arrived in Amsterdam this November and realised that the Killers were performing a pre-EMA […]
When I owned a house, I never had a cleaner. Mainly because a) I couldn’t afford one and b) I didn’t want a stranger in my house someone seeing how bad I was at cleaning. As I loathingly cleaned up after myself and my dogs, I often wondered what it would be like to have […]
It was by an odd coincidence that both of the last two books I have read have centred around World War 2 in some way. The first, The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton, in parts focussed on the life of one of the main characters during London in the Blitz. The second, and the one […]
