Last Stop: Siurana

The expansive area covers so many cliffs meandering through a valley and underneath a quaint village and castle.

It took us 3 attempts to get to the top, and now we want a day to just relax and soak it in before hopping on some rock again. I also wanted some time to sit down and  ...

Our Little Everest – Week 11-13

Hello again!! I know the blogs have been few and far between.

Back on the Road – Week 11

Hey guys! Paul and I are back on the road again, and boy does it feel good 🙂 I have to say I was a little bit nervous to be back in Ben after being reminded of all the luxuries we were missing out on in the studio by the beach in Bormes les Mimosas. It was so easy to get used to having a warm shower, using a fridge, and having so much space to  ...

Cinque Torri – Week 7

Week 7 Hi there! So it’s been about a month and a half of Paul and me on the road, and looking back at all our posts, it’s all sounding pretty similar. Get to a new spot, climb, hike, rest, repeat. How long can we actually do this for?? To be honest, I feel like I could live like this forever. The only thing we would need is a small amount of  ...

Brighter Days – Week 5

Week 5 Hey guys! So it’s the end of Week 5 now and although it had a rocky start, the travelling vibes have definitely taken a turn for the better. We began the week by driving into Italy due to a pizza craving and got to the Dolomites not exactly having a plan. We headed to Tre Cime (meaning Three Peaks) because we’d heard it was a really  ...
