Flea Market Finds!

After a day or two of rest we head in for another day in Berlin. This time a recommended Sunday flea market and ‘hidden’ art market are our target destinations.  Berlin has a lovely vibe on a Sunday with plenty of excuses to kick back, relax and people watch.…

Emotive Buildings, Eclectic Interiors

We’re shooting across Germany on these superfast autobahns. Both of us are excited to be heading to Berlin not least because of the dire events of yesterday but we’re both keen to discover more about this cool and edgy city (its Roddy’s first visit too and I know he’ll love it!)…

Whimsical Garden Sculpture…

After the heart stopping ceramic artworks we found in Seigburg, followed by a quick but interesting visit to the home of Kushi Grazzini and her husband Ilija Frenzel who make contemporary salt glazed vases and replica medieval tableware respectively, we made the difficult decision not to visit the lively and creative city of Dusseldorf and push on further north to Munster instead.…

Giant Vessels, Colossal Cathedrals

Cologne has a cool, charming almost Parisian feel about it with its ornate stately buildings and busy corner cafes and we are sat comfortably at one of these like locals, sipping an early morning coffee while on the phone.

Curious Tools & Handmade Textiles

The little campsite at Grimbergen just outside Brussels was a gem of a find, very clean, organised and yet chilled out (we generally steer away from over organised campsites -too uptight and over manicured) with attractive layout and planting – as much as we’d like to wild camp we need wi fi and electrics on this trip so its a bonus when we find ambient little sites like this one.…

Wild Winds to Stitched Paper Prints

Phew! After spending a lovely sunset first evening across the Channel in Blankenberge Belgium, eating tasty seafood and sipping wine beside the sea, we spent a scary night braving a major storm at our beachside campsite – I actually believed at one point that we might spin off into the night along with the ‘pop up’ roof!…

The Curious Egg Adventure

There’s something childishly thrilling about a tiny living space, especially one on wheels that you will call home for the next three months and that will store your belongings, bed and kitchen area in ingenious little nooks and crannies ready for an adventure!…

The Trip

So starting the blog was the first part of the dream, the second was to go on a trip. A trip like no other we’ve ever been on and one that would mean throwing caution to the wind, jumping off the edge and not knowing where or if we would land.…
