Cross-Country USA Road Trip: Shamrock, Texas

I can’t say we woke up feeling refreshed after our short night’s sleep in Tucumcari, but we were ready to get back on the road and cover some more ground. Our plan was to try and hit up some more of the Route 66 roadside attractions in Oklahoma that we hadn’t gotten to the first […]

Cross-Country USA Road Trip: The Grand Canyon

Cross-Country USA Road Trip: Grand Canyon

Setting off on another US road trip only ten weeks after the first, I assumed I would get sick of being in the car much faster. You see, the days during a road trip are great. It’s light out, there’s usually something to look at (even if it’s only corny roadside billboards) and you can […]

Plans For My Next US Road Trip

I know what you’re thinking: that all I ever seem to write about is US road trips. Am I right? Well, it’s true. This will be my fourth road trip in the USA in the last year. I’m becoming a bit of a road trip addict. This time, though, there is a genuine reason for […]

Common Misconceptions About Long Term Travel

You must be rich – This is by far the most common misconception and the one that annoys me the most. The majority of people who travel long term aren’t living off a trust fund or are heirs to some multinational conglomerate. They saved and they sacrificed to be able to travel, just like I […]

I’m Moving to Amsterdam!

Ok, let’s back it up a little, shall we? Last thing you heard, I was cruising down Route 66 and spread-eagling myself across four American states. That was also actually the last thing I can clearly remember, so you’re not alone. Somehow, the last few weeks have been an absolute blur of crazed decision-making and […]

My Road Trip Reads

When you have nothing to do but look at a lot of billboards while you’re driving from one side of the US to the other, it’s good to have some books to read or music/podcasts to listen to. Here are the three road trip reads that I took with me on our latest road trip, and […]

Spring Travel Inspired Fashion Finds

When I’m not travelling, I’m usually either reading travel blogs, or Pinning cute things that in some way relate to travel. Usually, this includes clothes and accessories that somehow tie in to my love of travel. I may not have an endless budget, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of owning some of these […]

Currently: Second Edition

If you have no idea where I’m at right now, I don’t blame you. I don’t really even know myself. 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 […]

The Time We Scored Free Tickets To The Killers Concert

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 […]

Why I’ll Never Have A Cleaner

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 […]
