We’re here with real life, page turning stories, tips, maps and reviews, from our years on the road, to inspire you to fulfill your travel dreams.
And do please say Hi!
We always love to hear from you and are always happy to answer any questions for you too.
See you on the Road.

Where We Are Now
As 2020 draws towards a close we’re roaming around Bulgaria in Iggy. We both have our first 5 year Bulgarian residency permits, and now we’re working on importing Iggy and getting him on Bulgarian plates.
At the same time we’re working on buying a property in the village of Miladinovsti. It’s a broken down, old house with 3,000 square metres of land. And it all needs a lot of work. We don’t know where to start in restoring it. But we’re going to give it our best shot.
Find out how we get on in our Journal pages, as we try to do just that. With our little agri-tourism, arts garden and camperstop still firmly in our sights.

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…
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
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.
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!
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.
