• Three months in: An update on van life

    I’ve picked up a lot of extra work recently and taken on some great new clients, which means I have been writing my butt off the past couple of months. Just sadly not for this blog. And I do feel a genuine sadness when I haven’t had time to stop and write something for myself. I am always writing for…

  • The North Coast 500 – The home straight

    This will be my final update on our North Coast 500 journey, though they’ll be plenty of other Scotland-based content to come from the great places we stayed after we completed the NC 500 route. The last post ended as we began to head down the East coast and back towards Inverness. Now I won’t lie to you because that’s…

  • The North Coast 500 – Reaching the north coast of Scotland

    When I last left you on our North Coast 5000 journey we had stopped in Gairloch, just 150 miles in and starting to climb up the West coast. This next instalment of our journey takes us all the way up and along the North coast of Scotland, to the highest point in the UK and to some of the most…

  • The North Coast 500 – The first 150 miles

  • Van life – Our Scottish adventure so far!

    At this point I probably shouldn’t even call myself a blogger as I haven’t put anything on here since 7th March! But as yesterday marked two weeks of living on the road, I thought it was about time I got something uploaded. We recently completed the North Coast 500 in Scotland and I’ll be writing a series of posts about…

  • Our travel highlights from 2018

    As 2018 is almost behind us, I thought it would be nice to take a look back over some of our travel highlight from the year just gone – especially with so much to look forward to in the year ahead! It’s been such a busy year that it was almost too hard to pull together the highlights, but there…

  • What 2019 has in store for us!

    It’s fair to say that 2018 got off to a pretty emotional start and has certainly had its ups and downs throughout. But now, as we approach the end of the year, I’m feeling optimistic and excited about what 2019 has in store for us! And I often hear people say that you don’t need to wait until the New…
