Viva la highlands!

We’ve returned from our trip to the Lake District and Scotland, the eagle eyed amongst will have noticed there has been little activity on the blog front.

Unfortunately the internet or mobile internet was a bit of a mystery item in all the locations we visited plus we were having so much fun I didn’t really fancy sitting down in front of a computer as I do every working day!

The trip was great and i’ve spent a bit of time writing up our adventures, i’ve broken the report up into three sections based on where we were staying, click on each link for a report.

Ullswater

Glentrool

Loch Lomond

We’ve also had a chance to road test two of the items we bought for the van, the Cobb bbq and a Duvalay mattress, click here for the Cobb and here for the Duvalay reviews.

The van ran like a dream (aside from a leakjy sunroof) and our round trip total was 1090 miles on 2 tanks of diesel.

I hope you enjoy the reports and any feedback would be great.

Nice one!

Scotland here we come !

We have booked up our first proper road trip in the van, 7 nights camping around the lake district and Scotland.

We’ll be going to:

Ullswater

Galloway Forest

Loch lomond

Each of these locations offers some awesome walks, mountain bike rides, stunning views and hopefully some astro photography as at least one place we are staying at has been designated a dark sky park, can’t do much about clouds though.

We are really excited (me especially) and I will be spending my 40th tearing about on my bike if it’s not chucking it down, amazing!

As always I’ll write up a report of each place we visit and we’ll also have a chance to test out our Cobb BBQ and Duvalay, check out the goodies section for a write up on each.

First road trip of 2015!

With my 40th just round the corner we’ve decided to take the whole week off and go on a road trip.

The trip is in the early stages of planning but i’m so excited I thought I should post something!

Looking like we’ll be heading to the lake district first and the to galloway forest, then following a scenic drive to Oban, thats as far as i’ve got but as I mentioned before, so excited…

Been wanting to go to Scotland for ages and now it’s happening, woo hoo !!!
