Here you can learn all about the itinerary, the best bits about this tour and how easy it is to prepare for. Continue reading “Getting To Know Bali – An Ubud Eco Trek”

* A VEGAN SPECIAL *

7 Vegan Meal Ideas

One gas bottle, a two-ring hob and three meals a day. We recently spent no less than 6 weeks living in a hi-top campervan, a converted Hiace with just about enough room to stand up in. With just one medium saucepan and one medium frying pan to play with, we’ve become experts at easy campervan meals that require limited resources. Our road trip was full of natural beauty, long days exploring and thousands of kilometres of new roads. When we stopped for a meal, we wanted it to be simple to make, but we also wanted to avoid junk food, fast food or processed food. This month, we’re sharing our top seven go-to meals for time spent on the road with a campervan kitchen.ย  Continue reading “Meals on Campervan Wheels”

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fraser Island, Australia

As the largest sand island in the world, for a very unique style of adventure, get yourself to Fraser Island. Just off Australia’s east coast, it’s ideal for lovers of wildlife, epic drives and memorable experiences. Staying here for a while can get costly so we want to show you how we did it in just one day. We’ll also recommend a natural pool in Noosa Heads with a touch of magic, if you don’t mind a spot of rock climbing! Pack your camera, hold on tight and admire the rather bumpy but incredible views of Fraser Island and it’s surroundings. Continue reading “Dingoes and Driving”

A Rural Retreat

A rural retreat that prioritises wellbeing and relaxation in Thetford Forest, England.

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order”ย – John Burroughs

Thetford Forest, England

We can all benefit from a full recharge now and again and the great news is this doesn’t have to cost the earth or take you too far away from home. Everyone should have a local spot to turn to in times of need for pure relaxation and a complete vacation from everyday life.ย My biggest time of need for such a break often hits me in late December, when the party season has begun to take its toll on my body and bank account and I’m utterly fed up of all the running around that has sadly become normal for this time of year!
