INSPIRATIONAL ADVENTURES

Stranded In A Saharan Sandstorm

Our time in Morocco was full of adventure, and there were some nervous faces in our jeep when we were caught out in a Saharan sandstorm. Enveloped in the darkness, we switched the engine off and considered our options as the sand roared around us. Find out how we finally made it back to our camp!

Camping On Antarctica (Without A Tent!)

Our adventure to Antarctica is still one of our favourites, and an absolute highlight of our time there was spending a night camping on the white continent, without a tent! It was an unbelievable experience, made all the more exciting when we were woken by two whales, feeding in the middle of the night.

Mount Rinjani

Rinjani Trek: The Most Epic Volcanic Experience!

Probably the most epic trek we have ever attempted, Mount Rinjani was one of our toughest challenges ever! Imagine spending 4 days trekking up an active volcano, camping on the caldera rim and admiring the beautiful lake that now fills the caldera. Find out everything you need to know about this incredible trek!

Climbing Villarrica Volcano In Pucon, Chile

If snow, ice and volcanoes are your thing, then you’ll want check out our ascent of the Villarrica volcano in Pucon, Chile! This is by no means an easy climb, it’s a dangerous, tough climb but incredibly rewarding as you’ll see from our experience.

Camel Trekking Under The Stars, India

A camel trek into the desert was always something we wanted to do, so we jumped at the chance in Northern India. What followed was a day of bumpy trekking, a night under the stars with only a blanket and a million beetles to keep us company!

Conquering The Mighty Jebel Toubkal In Winter

Attempting a climb of Mount Toubkal in Morocco is a challenge at the best of times, but scaling it in winter was another thing altogether. Conditions were atrocious on our climb, making it one of the most difficult and challenging climbs we’ve ever taken on.

INSPIRING TRAVEL VIDEOS

INDIA

BAI TU LONG BAY, VIETNAM

MOROCCO

India is a country full of verve, energy and contradictions. It is a challenge to visit, but it leaves an indelible mark on your soul. This is our video from our time in this wonderful country!

The towering limestone karsts of Bai Tu Long Bay area, arguably Vietnams greatest natural wonder, protruding from the lush turquoise waters below. Enjoy our video of this magnificent world heritage site!

From the jaw dropping highs of the Atlas mountains, to the barren landscapes of the Sahara desert, Morocco and its diverse landscapes offer some of the most incredible adventures we’ve ever experienced.

CULTURAL ODYSSEYS

Eating Sheep Head In The Sahara Desert, Morocco

Living with berbers in the Sahara desert was an incredible experience, watching as they went about their daily lives. As guests in their home, we were treated to a local delicacy on our last night, a freshly prepared sheep head, with all the trimmings. This was one of our biggest challenges!

Life And Death In Varanasi, India

Varanasi was an absolute attack on the senses, and our experiences there will stay with us forever. Public cremations on the banks of the Ganges, processions of shrouded bodies through the narrow streets and sweltering heat all left an indelible mark on us.

Mrs Vu Thi Thai & The Vietnam War

The first in our Life Stories series, we spent time with Mrs Vu Thi Thai, a wonderful women in the North of Vietnam. We spent hours talking (through a translator) about her life, and the husband she lost in the American (Vietnam) war. It was a sobering and enlightening experience, and we share it here through photo and video.

Semana Santa Celebrations In Antigua, Guatemala

Antigua in Guatemala has arguably some of the best celebrations of Holy week, or Semana Santa in all of Latin America. We were lucky enough to be in town for the celebrations, and the numerous processions along its ancient cobbled streets…

Witnessing Argentine Tango First Hand!

There is no doubt that Buenos Aires is the home of tango, so we couldn’t wait to witness our first authentic Argentine Tango live performance, and try it out for ourselves! I just didn’t expect Barry to be up there tangoing with the experts after only 1 lesson!

Living With Monks In The Mountains Of Koyasan, Japan

Leaving Tokyo behind, we headed to the mountains, and in particular a small monastery in Koyasan, where we spend a couple of days. Despite the cold, it was an enriching experience, as we watched the monks go about their daily life, including the morning fire ritual (with video).
