A Weekend in Valencia

Valencia, Spain. We kicked off the new year with a surprisingly warm start, arriving here greeted with 20 degrees and nothing but sunny skies. Located on the east coast of the country with a modest flight time of 2 hours from London, it’s often overlooked but is in fact the third largest and the oldest city in Spain. Especially at this time of year the number…

Sunset in Seville

Seville, Spain. The capital of the Andalusia region and now has to be one of my favourite European cities I’ve visited so far. We did a weekend break here in November and were still able to wear T-shirts all day without getting cold. We started our first day with an early morning wake up call to catch sunrise at “Plaza de Espana” which turned out to…

London to San Sebastian Cycle

San Sebastian, Spain, the final destination of our 583 mile cycle from London in 6 and a half days. It sounded like a great idea, in the planning stage we compared it with our previous cycle to Venice and were determined to make it an easier and more enjoyable ride. How could it not be, this time we would have a shower and comfy bed every…

Bulgaria in Autumn

Sofia, Bulgaria. A less popular European capital among tourists, but after spending an excellent long weekend here, there is no good reason why. Cheap travel, food and admissions, 24 degrees in late October and beautiful scenery, what is not to like! We started out with a full day in the city, the stunning Alexander Nevsky Cathedral sits right in the centre and is a sight to behold,…

Driving in Tuscany

The region of Tuscany in Italy was the main feature of our Italian road trip but we also explored the surrounding areas including the beautiful Cinque Terre, See my favourite photos of the trip below.      

Midnight Sun

  Tromso & Olso, Norway. We visited Norway in peak summer to undertake the midnight sun marathon. The race starts at 9pm and unless you are a professional athlete or a very good armature, you will still be running come midnight with the sun still shining. The most northern official marathon, this is a great one to add to the list with far reaching mountains making…

Fiji Time

Fiji, the third leg of our Australasian adventure, we couldn’t resist taking the short flight from Auckland. We based ourselves just outside of Nadi and spent most of our time exploring the many islands that make up Fiji. Bliss!

Kiwi Road Trip

New Zealand, North Island. Our main town stop off points on our road trip were: Auckland -> Hamilton -> Taupo -> Rotorua -> Tauranga -> White Island -> Coromandel -> Auckland. More to come soon.    

Blue Mountains

Sydney, Australia. The starting point of our 3 week holiday after the longest journey either of us has ever undertaken. If memory serves me well I believe it was about 33 hours door to door and some very confused body clocks. Sydney is a great city, it’s absolutely vast, all built around the harbor. Everyone is very friendly, you will be asked “How’re you going?” on…
