A Shout Out To America’s National Parks

It's National Park Week over in the USA - and with the exception of a couple of pretty awesome cities, the national parks are my absolute favourite thing about America. Sadly nobody can visit the national parks at the moment, but I wanted to do a round up of the ones I've been to -… Continue reading A Shout Out To America’s National Parks

Dinosaurs, Wildlife & An Off-Season Trip To Yellowstone

You may remember that we very nearly didn't make it to Yellowstone at all. Well, it almost happened again - when we were right outside. Considering we were now completely in off-season, we had hit lucky for almost all of our road trip, from missing a snow storm in the Canadian Rockies, to having absolutely… Continue reading Dinosaurs, Wildlife & An Off-Season Trip To Yellowstone

Arches National Park and a Surprising Stop In Moab

We continued our trip north through Utah, passing through charming desert towns like Mexican Hat, and close to more canyons like the Canyonlands, as we meandered towards the unassuming Utah hotspot, Moab. Monument Valley had marked the end of our semi-organised schedule that we'd mostly kept to on the road trip so far, and now… Continue reading Arches National Park and a Surprising Stop In Moab

Photo Friday: The Colours Of Utah

It's been a while since I've done a photo post - but Utah is so full of photogenic spots that this one was always on the cards. Plus there are plenty of places we saw or passed that haven't made it into other blog posts. Utah is one of my favourite US states. Sometimes I… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Colours Of Utah

Hikes, Sunsets and a Crazy Camping Adventure at the Grand Canyon

It was pitch black, and we were cooking sausages on a broken barbeque and failing absolutely miserably when it happened. We were camping a few miles south of the Grand Canyon, our next stop on the Great American Road Trip, and the place was deserted save for a couple of parked up campervans. "Hey guys,… Continue reading Hikes, Sunsets and a Crazy Camping Adventure at the Grand Canyon

Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

Just over ten years ago, I made my first visit to Zion National Park and managed to miss out on the famed Angel's Landing hike. We had a few options for hiking, and after hearing that one of them would be a four hour hike with lots of terrifying drops and chains, my friend and… Continue reading Hiking Angel’s Landing In Zion National Park

Yosemite In A Day: All Of The Incredible Views In Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park has always been one of those places that I've really wanted to visit for as long as I can remember hearing of it, but in reality I actually had no idea what to expect because I'd never researched it. So while I knew we were going to be in for some beautiful… Continue reading Yosemite In A Day: All Of The Incredible Views In Yosemite National Park

A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

I'm always excited to visit Banff. It might help that I have some awesome family there, but Banff in itself is inexplicably one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, so I'm lucky to have excuses to visit often (if 3 times in 12 years counts as often). But on this trip, we'd be… Continue reading A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

Scotland Road Trip Day 2: A Sunny Loch Lomond to… A Rainy Glencoe

Our luck with the weather improved on our second day of the Scotland road trip. For a whole twenty minutes. Luckily, those twenty minutes coincided with exactly the time we stopped in the gorgeous lochside village of Luss. In fact, all day the rain stopped and started at the right times, so in some ways… Continue reading Scotland Road Trip Day 2: A Sunny Loch Lomond to… A Rainy Glencoe
