Where We Are Now

We’re currently back in Scotland while Jay refills the bank accounts for our next Tour. I’ll be blogging regularly about our Nomadic lifestyle as we travel and work across Scotland (and hopefully Northern Ireland too ) during the next fifteen weeks or so.

I’ll also be getting this new website fully up to speed with all the back stories from our previous tours. I’m really excited to share all our previously untold stories with you. That and planning next year’s Tours is going to keep me pretty busy!

As for the next overseas Tour? Well we’re not one hundred percent decided yet, but we might head back down to Portugal & Spain for a couple of months come February time. And then the next big adventure will be a few months over winter to Turkey. Maybe as far as Georgia if I can find us a good insurance deal.

You can keep up with our day to day progress on Facebook as well. And don’t forget to sign up here for your weekly newsletter with quick and handy links to all our new articles.

Marley the Greek Rescue Dog

We meet a lot of hungry, homeless dogs and cats on our travels. We do what we can to help, and then have to go on our way and leave them behind.

But our world changed forever the day we went to see the ruins of Ancient Olympia. And our little Nomadic family got a tiny bit bigger…

Travel Fears

It’s good to step outside of our comfort zones sometimes. And travelling is one sure fire way to make that happen!
Here Jay faces his biggest fear while on the road.

Jay’s Top Three Cities – So Far

1. Porto

It’s got so much to offer that sets it apart from a lot of other European city destinations. The sheer romantic quality of piles of Liqourice Allsort coloured buildings stacked in layers along the steep banks of the Douro. The rolling sea mist. The cormorants perched on old barges.
Porto mixes favourite flavours of Europe with a touch of otherworldly exoticism that is unbeatable and hard to forget.

2. Donostia/San Sebastian

A favourite of many travel writers for a very good reason. At the gateway between Spain and France this Basque city is definitely worth a day or two of your time at least. The beach, the watersports, the views, the food, the art, the culture. Pinxtos please!

3. Pamplona

We made an unplanned visit to Pamplona when we had van trouble, and expected to find a small town with steep old streets for the infamous Bull Run. Instead we found a vibrant, fascinating city of history and culture. High in the clear air of Basque Country.
