The first thing you are going to need to bake waffles on your campfire is a waffle iron. The one I personally have is the Petromax Waffle Iron and I’d definitely recommend it. As with all Petromax cooking equipment (I’ve already reviewed their Kettle, Dutch Oven and Hobo Stove), it is very, very well made and will serve you brilliantly for years and years. Anyway, after you’ve got your waffle iron, you’ll need a campfire and some ingredients……

  Discover Plitvice Lakes National Park On your way to Split, the first thing I recommend doing is to head to the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Being one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia, with UNESCO status, it is a must. The lakes are absolutely stunning and such a fantastic day out. As soon as you arrive, hop on the transfer bus down through the woodland area. Then follow the trails, across the wooden paths and bridges.…

  I’m excited to be reviewing the Coleman Fyrestorm PCS backpacking stove as I really like portable stoves. This style is especially cool as it is a highly portable stove and contains everything you need to prepare a whole meal. The PCS in the stove’s name actually stands for Personal Cooking System, which is exactly what this stove is. As I said, the Fyrestorm PCS contains everything you need and this is because of the ingenious design which includes a…

  Summer is officially over and it is now time to get your winter wardrobe ready for the drop in temperature. I always think it is important to have some stylish, statement pieces to enhance your look during the autumn and winter seasons, so I was very pleased to have found such a great ladies jumper by Fjallraven called the Övik Scandinavian Sweater. Mike and I absolutely love this outdoor brand; not only do they create awesome clothing, but they…

Probably one of the easiest Game Of Thrones landmarks to Recognise in Dubrovnik are the steps from the Great Sept of Baelor in King’s Landing aka the ‘Shame Steps’. In real life these are actually the Dubrovnik’s Jesuit steps. Because they are so iconic and are situated right in the centre of the walled old town of Dubrovnik. These steps are very busy and a very popular photo stop. When we first found them…

Inside the box you get the above contents: a stuff sack, FlexLight, fire starter, USB cord and instructions (don’t worry you wont need them,…

On one side you get amazing views…

  Relax at Szechenyi Baths After a recommendation, we chose to visit the Szechenyi Bath House whilst in Budapest. There are quite a few bath houes around the city, but this particular one is fantastic. It is open from 6am until 10pm at night (last entry is around 7pm), but it does get busy around lunchtime onwards, so make sure you get there around 9am to make the most of your time there during the quieter times. As part of…

During our summer European adventure, we decided that we would leave the cities behind us for just over a week and trek through the Slovakian High Tatras. The best way to really get into the mountains and explore the most of them is by trekking hut to hut. There are lots of tours that offer pre-arranged and organised guided and self-guided tours but we decided that we could do it…
