On the road

After a sleep in and a quick swim in the KOA pool, we hit the road again today continuing East towards Phoenix. It was a quiet afternoon with a few stops including at a little restaurant in Palm Springs for some drinks and Tortilla chips. They had these cute outdoor seating swings that generated a [...]

So long LA

Today we said goodbye to our fantastic LA Airbnb hosts (and their super cute little dogs) and headed South to pick up our Cruise America RV. We've booked a relocation special to take the RV from Los Angeles to the Cruise America home base in Mesa, Arizona as it means only $30/day (score!), and a [...]

LA: Batman, TV and Baseball

Phew, another whirlwind day in sunny LA! We started our morning at Warner Bros. on one of their studio tours, wandering around and learning how sets are transformed and re-used on multiple shows. I'm a big TV fan so was really excited to hear they were filming Shameless & The Big Bang Theory while we [...]

Hello again, LA

We're back in LA! It's been 7 years since our last visit and little has changed here - but a lot has changed with us. We're different travellers now, we see things differently and I feel so privileged to be able to return to this exciting place. We have a car this time, it's a [...]

Tokyo in Photos

We've just spent a whirlwind 10 days in the ever-busy Tokyo, Japan. It's been our first visit here and the country has lived up to our expectations with the busy capital city, friendly people, crazy-cute-weirdness, and the delicious food. As with so many of our trips, we're too busy to write about what's going on. [...]

Contiki Day 7: Prague to Vienna

As most of today was spent on the bus traveling Vienna I wasn't planning on writing a blog post. However, we stopped off at the Sedlec Ossuary and it was just way too crazy to not post a couple of photos...

Contiki: Day 6 Prague

Today was our last full day in Prague. Determined to find a geocache after failing miserably last time we visited, we decided to head off to the John Lennon wall. The wall is an odd attraction. Lennon was never at the site where it stands, in fact he never actually visited Prague at all. The [...]

Contiki: Days 4 & 5. Berlin -> Prague

Most of today was spent on the bus from Berlin to Prague, via Dresden. I was worried that so much time on a bus would become tedious but as it's around 0-2° in most places, the warmth of the bus is a welcome relief. The stop in Dresden was odd as it appeared the only [...]

Contiki: Day 3 Berlin

The tour so far has been very sobering as we've been learning about the suffering many people experienced in Berlin during the World Wars and particularly during the National Socialist period. Today Contiki had arranged a morning walking tour with an English speaking guide. He took us past several sites we'd already seen but then [...]

Contiki: Day 2 Berlin

Today we visited the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum. Its taken me a little while to write this blog post as it's just so difficult to decide what to say about such a horrible place. I've heard stories about what went on in concentration camps but being there and seeing the grounds for myself just made [...]
