Holiday in Croatia

1
Are you an exceptionally rubbish photographer? Do you sometimes lack the creativity it takes to keep your social media channels looking like everything you do is far more beautiful than it actually is? If so, the solution that you seek may just be Croatia. Here you could spin around in circles whilst blindfolded and then take a picture in...

Ups and Downs

It was a proud moment, the first conversation of the trip that I had held entirely in French where neither side had resorted to using any English or had given up entirely. Me: “Excuse me, is it possible to have the key for the toilet?”Shop Assistant: ”Yes. Bring it back here when you have finished.”Me: ”Thank you.” It was far...

On The Move!

Neither Versailles nor Paris have ever been on my bucket list of places that I feel an overwhelming urge to visit, which is not really surprising as that particular list is completely empty. I also have no burning ambition to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat, or to lie on my back on the floor of the Sistine...

Between the Cracks

Between the global pandemic and a wobble in my own health we haven't really had much of a chance to get out on many micro-adventures lately - and the few that we have been on we decided to do for ourselves: a camping trip in torrential rain, a beach cooking evening where we forgot to bring any utensils, and...

Race Against Time & Covid

As covid restrictions begin to ease we are tentatively looking to set our world-trip departure date for a 5th time. Both of us are double vaccinated and ready to head off as soon as we can. We are currently restricted by which countries the UK government advises "against all but essential travel" (currently almost the entire world)....

It's funny how quickly perspectives can change. Usually if we were heading out on a cold and drizzly November evening like this to find a spot to pitch our tent we would be using phrases like "roughing it" and secretly hoping that the weather would clear. Tonight was different. We've spent so many of our past...

Castle Cornet

Laying in our sleeping bags, with the sound of waves lapping against the nearby rocks, and the occasional lights of fishing boats slowly motoring past, we decided that we probably wouldn't write a post about this week's micro-adventure. Our aim was to find somewhere where we could do another test flight of our homemade KAP (kite aerial photography) mount which...

Port Soif (Guernsey)

Here are some photos from the first flight of version 2 of my homemade Picavet mount. These were taken during one of our micro-adventures: A Different Perspective. I had forgotten to disable HDR on the Gopro and so there is a bit of image ghosting (blurry, double vision) in some of the photos.

A Different Perspective

What do you mean you don't want to read yet another post about how we packed our panniers, cycled down the coast, found a beautiful little grass-topped rock, set up our bivvy bags, ate dinner while watching the setting sun, and then spent a blissful night under the stars? Well, luckily for you, even though that's exactly what...

Storming the Fort

There's a special balance, it's a mixture of excitement and apprehension, that you get from being on the road and not knowing where, or even if, you will be able to find a quiet spot to rest your weary legs and tired eyes for the night. Occasionally it just happens; miles away from anyone else, beautiful hazy views,...
