Stumbling Across Solitaire: Sunsets, Car Wrecks & Apple Pie

While Instagram had handily prepared us for many of the stunning landscapes we saw on our mini Namibian road trip, we weren’t expecting to be so taken by the tiny town of Solitaire. Well. They claim it’s a town, but much like the “village” we drove through that consisted of a windmill, sheep farm and minuscule police HQ, it’s more like a strategically located gas station with some unexpected quirks.

Visiting Auschwitz from Krakow

When people say they are going to be visiting Auschwitz from Krakow, it’s hard to know how to respond. You can’t really say “have fun” or “enjoy your trip”. In the end I tend to go with “have a great time in beautiful Krakow and I’m pleased you’ve chosen to experience Auschwitz”. Even that sounds a little awkward.

A Quick Berlin Travel Guide: Travel Tips, Food, Sights & Tours

Believe it or not, since we got back from our world travel adventures, we have been asked for more tips and suggestions for visiting Berlin than anywhere else we went. I reckon I’ve sent my travel notes to at least ten people in the last couple of months, so I figured that I’d post a quick Berlin travel guide based on our time spent exploring the city.

How To Travel In Iceland on a Budget: Our Top Tips

Iceland is definitely not one of those countries that springs to mind when thinking about affordable travel destinations. When you’re talking $10 for a beer, costs can soon mount up and before you know it you’ve spent your annual holiday budget on a single trip! However, there are plenty of ways you can travel Iceland on a budget and still have an awesome time.

Adventures In Botswana: Visiting The Okavango Delta

On our way to the Okavango our guide confessed that his dream would be to end up reincarnated as an elephant in the delta. About 2 minutes after we arrived all 19 of us on our tour were feeling the same way. This place is beautiful! I mean, seriously stunning. If you visit anywhere in Botswana, this has got to be it. Chobe National Park is fantastic and the Kalahari Desert is breathtaking, but visiting the Okavango Delta was on another level entirely.

Our 2018 Travel Plans – A Little Update

It’s kind of awkward returning to a blog after 5 months of radio silence, so bear with me as I try to catch up on the hundreds of half drafted posts and collections of not quite edited photos from the last year or so! In the meantime, I thought I’d write a little update post on what we’ve been up to since we last got around to writing on a regular basis and fill you in on our travel plans for the year.

Our Budget Friendly Trip To Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Whilst Victoria Falls is well known as a destination for more adventurous types, people who blow their travel budget on everything from bungee jumping to white water rafting, we chose to explore on a shoe string. Since we got back from our year long backpacking trip around the globe we don’t necessarily need to stick to a tight budget in the same way that we used to, but hey, old habits die hard and we’re not exactly what you’d call thrill seekers!

2 Weeks in Africa: An Itinerary For Zimbabwe, Botswana & Namibia

When you only have 25 days of annual leave for adventures, deciding on where to head for your next trip when you have ambitions of exploring as many countries as possible can be a challenge. Even harder in our experience when you’ve had a full year off to travel as you please and need to get used to using as few week days as possible to travel as much as you can!

Well hello everyone, I’ve been a bit absent this week so thought I’d write a little catch up post to let you all know what’s new. It’s actually great to be at home and we’ve had a great couple of weeks catching up with friends and getting settled back into normal life again.

A Spontaneous Afternoon in London

When my Mum mentioned that she was headed to London to get her Russian visa application processed I jumped at the chance to tag along. We’ve only been back a little over a week, but I have to be honest and admit that the post travel blues I was trying so hard to avoid have started to rear their head. The idea of an afternoon in London sounded like the perfect remedy.
