Road trips in your van or car can make for some of the best journeys and holidays, but the last thing you want to face at the end of a long day on the road is a problem with your tyres. Therefore, keeping your tyres in good condition before you set off is always a great idea. Remember that smoothly running tyres doesn’t just mean that you are less likely to suffer a puncture or a blow out, but…

  We awoke for our final day in London with a spring in our steps and bounced down to breakfast. When the waitress asked us for any extras we both opted for the waffles, which were amazing! We had the return journey booked for about 4 o’clock but that hadn’t stopped us planning the day packed to the rafters with cool activities. Once we had feasted again on Park Plaza’s awesome breakfast we returned to the room and commenced repacking…

  After an amazing day filled with art galleries and West End musicals it only seemed right to top it all off with a luxurious meal. It was with this in mind that I had made a reservation at Moti Mahal Restaurant in Covent Garden, which was just a short walk from the theatre. The food at Moti Mahal isn’t your run-of-the-mill Indian takeaway or restaurant, it’s a gastronomic Indian restaurant that’s much more highly refined and sophisticated. Covent Garden…

  After a well deserved and delightfully peaceful sleep we got up and made our way to breakfast. The breakfast which was included with our room was amazing. We were shown to our seats and offered tea, coffee and anything that wasn’t included on the buffet, including waffles and pancakes! The buffet style breakfast contained pretty much everything you’d imagine and more. I did the usual thing you do when at a hotel breakfast like this and had about three…

  After we had settled into our room we set out on an epic London day out. First stop on our tour was Camden Market for shopping and most importantly – lunch! I absolutely love Camden, it’s so cool and has great shops and food stalls. I really like picking up cool odds and ends there to kit out my van. This time I got my hands on some cool ethnic style fabrics to deck out the back of my…

  A few days before Christmas I went on a short trip North of the Cornish border and up to the Big Smoke (London). This was to soak up the Christmas atmosphere, do some sightseeing and a little bit of last minute present shopping. I’ll start at the beginning: The Journey To London The first part of the Journey I did solo and travelled up from Cornwall to Newton Abbot on the train. It was the Saturday before Christmas and…

  I’m desperatly trying to claw onto the last remaining days of summer. On a recent sunny weekend my girlfriend and I decided to go for a little camping trip to Dennis Farm Campsite near Padstow. This campsite is next to and run by the same people as Dennis Cove Campsite (which I’ve written about previously). What I was amazed to find out though, is that this campsite is even better! This is mainly due to its incredible location. You…

  I’ve just returned from an awesome mini camping trip to Padstow in my VW T4. I don’t want my van to be a full on conversion as I use it for carrying all kinds of stuff and don’t want to waste the space with sinks and fridges. What’s great about my T4 is that you can easily remove the rear seats and then have the entire rear of the van empty. The back of the van will then easily…

  I’ve just been packing for a couple nights away and thought I’d pop on here and write a quick post (mainly to brag) about my new Fjall Raven duffel bag. It’s made from their waxed fabric, called G-1000, which is mega strong and will definitely last me years. It’s straps are made from a really high quality and natural coloured leather. The way their made means you can carry it in your hand, over your shoulder or like a…

  I absolutely love the 6 Nations, it makes the months of February and March awesome and something to really look forward to. Guaranteed fantastic weekends to get over the bleak weather and January, which is always a bit of a lame month. My brother from another mother and I were lucky enough to celebrate the start of the 6 Nations in style by watching the Wales v Italy game live. We were so stoked that we left Cornwall and…
