    Returning to van life during the Coronavirus

    In approximately 17 days (not that we’re counting or anything) we’re going to be moving out of our caravan and back into our van! There are a number of reasons why we’ve been living in the caravan for so much longer than we had planned, but after the government announced that campsites could re-open on 4th July, our little winter…

    One year as Cornish folk

    The North Coast 500 – The first 150 miles

    A few weeks back we completed the North Coast 500 which is a 500 mile road trip around the north of Scotland. The guide book we bought estimated that this would take us around a week, but we took a slight detour over to the Isle of Skye, so it actually took us about nine days to complete. If you’re…
