SOUTH WEST COAST, England
July - September 2019
South West Coastal Path
We are starting the SWCP on 26th June. A 630 mile hike along the Somerset, Devonshire, Cornish and Dorset coasts. We think it should take us around 50 days. Angus is coming too. We are hoping to document the trip so keep an eye on the Journal and instagram for updates.
Route des Grandes Alpes
The Alpes is where we met and a place we feel at home. We made our way through heading back from the South of France to the UK, finding along the way the most amazing wild camping spots and mountain views. This seems like a place to remember for the future when a wood cabin in the mountains starts calling.
Staying still (for a while)
Yes, you read it correctly. We will be living in Edinburgh for the winter. We are really excited to spend time in this beautiful city and will be available for graphic design, photography, coffee dates and walks up Arthurs Seat! Give us a shout!
Barra, Uist, Lewis, harris
It has been our greatest shame that we have not explored every corner of Scotland. But we managed to hop aboard a ferry to the Outer Hebrides to expolore these mysterious islands. What an incredible place, we had to keep reminding ourselves we were still 'home'. The baron landscapes where stark and beautiful and as the weather changed throughout each day so did our surroundings. Bright blue seas and blinding white sands, musty peat bogs and lonely crofts. We loved it.
The Lake District
May - June 2018
In The Lakes
Six weeks spent in the Lake District, Northern England. Resting from our last adventure, walking up hills, swimming in lakes and teaching Angus to paddleboard or at least sit on it while we paddle.
France, Spain, Portugal
March - May 2018
The Atlantic Coast
We missed Matilda while we where away in NZ. So we went off for some proper #vanlife! It was exactly that, showering once a week, a bit of surfing, some epic wild camping spots and Adam learning to fly a drone. Portugals atlantic coast is dramatic and we saw some pretty big storms, we slept next to cliffs and heard the waves all night then headed into the mountains of Spain for some quiet. With a week left we crossed into France, exhausted and ready for some time in one spot. So we decided to just drive back to the UK, 1200km's later and we were there. Sometimes when the motherland is calling you just have to go.
The Other side of the world
We sacked off January and headed off to New Zealand for a month. It has been on our list of destinations for a very long time and we where so glad we took the plunge and booked the flights. We spent the month in a rental van we named Bryce (after our best tiny house guy off of Living Big in a Tiny House!) New Zealnd was epic. Not much else we can say. Also their librarys have excellent free wifi for us Digital Nomads!
September - December 2017
Back to Britain
Back in Britain, we stayed in tiny house in Cornwall, ran a half marathon in Wales, ran/walked/hobbled a full marathon in Eastbourne and a week surfing in Morocco thrown in for good measure. Then heading up to the motherland (Scotland) for Christmas. Quick crimbo dinner then our flight to New Zealand leaves on 28th . . .
July - August 2017
We wanted to get somewhere pretty wild, so drove from the UK, north. Way north. Through Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland then finally to Norway. Making our way from Kirkenes to the Lofoten Islands. We finished our trip there and headed back the UK but we'll be back to explore the rest of Norway and Scandinavia.
