Nature… We both had a terrible nights sleep, thanks to an inconvenient typhoon. Being a typhoon it didn’t let up until morning, however it did give us a lovely new swimming pool in the park. Having taken shelter in the toilets, we did what we could only do when your stuck in a toilet in Japan and charged our phones, learnt some Japanese and harmonized with the rain.

We were […]

Barranco Beach, situated in the Algarve close to the town of Sagres. This is an amazing place to visit for many reasons; one being that there is a semi permanent hippie community on the beach.

The beach is amazing just like many of the beaches in the Algarve, although like others this one has not been touched by tourism or anything of that matter. As such there are no facilities at all apart a compost toilet, there isn’t even a road! Having said that […]

Accommodation Accommodation, transport and visas, are some of the most expensive costs when travelling, as travellers we are always counting money to try and get the cheapest deals on all of the above.

Camping Camping is by far one of the cheapest accommodation options as it’s usually FREE if you are wild camping or there may be a small charge which can differ depending where you are. […]
The end is nigh for 2015, however 2016 is now here! Looking back at pictures, postcards and bits of film, it has been an interesting year to say the least.
