Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Reliving the Polish sauna experience

Travel Blog Header

Ellie here, checking in again – but right now, it’s from the UK! I’ll explain why once I’ve told you about the more fun bits of this week first! Like I said last week, we had a day’s break, and then another set of visitors were coming! So it was all systems go, and a […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Copious amounts of Polish food!

Blog header

In case you were beginning to think we’d been eaten by Polish bears, fear not! Basically, our lives have just been really boring the past 2 weeks, and I didn’t think you’d be particularly interested in hearing about it! As much as we loved being in the van full time, always being on the go, […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Polish Bears & Roller Coasters

Blog Header

So this week, we pick up where we left off, in the beautiful town of Zakopane in Southern Poland. I couldn’t move on from this place without talking about one more thing – bears. This may just show my ignorance but on our very first hike, I jokingly said to my husband something about bears, […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Zakopane ~ the ‘winter capital of Poland’

Blog header

If anyone has been reading from the start, you may remember that the first few weeks of van life, and in Scotland especially, we did quite a bit of climbing, hiking in the mountains etc. My husband loves a hike, but he is not a fan of climbing, so imagine how shocked I was this […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Exploring Poland

Blog Header

This week, our plans changed somewhat. As plans tend to do when you go on a lovely 10k walk along the beach! More on that in a minute, first let me tell you about Gdansk, Sopot & Gdynia. Gdansk is where we will be based, and you’ll find it pretty much front-and-centre on the very […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – From Paris to Poland

Travel From Paris to Poland

Dzien dobry from Poland! I have to admit that since the last blog, we’ve not spent one night in the van. But that will soon change! So anyway, how did we get here? I spoke last week about the ferry crossing to France, but, as you can imagine, with Covid & Brexit both having something […]

Bonjour! … Merci… Oui, oui baguette?! That is the full extent of my French, I’m ashamed to say. But I thought I should try considering I’m writing this from our first European country in the van! That’s right, we’ve braved the borders and we’re on the continent! Let me fill you in on the week […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – Hurst Spit & Piglets Day Out

Blog header

Wow, another week has flown by! People have been asking how long we’ve been in the van now … my immediate response is ‘’oh, about a month’’ … but given that we’re on blog number 8, I guess it’s closer to 2…! We’ve been enjoying the beauty of the South coast this week. I know […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventure – From the Lake District to the South Coast

Travel Adventure

Hello again from me, who is still pretty clean! What has my life come to that I’m introducing myself like that? But yes, another beautiful week has been had. The weather continues to be beautiful. We’re now pretty much as far away from Scotland as possible, on the South coast, and really, we seem to […]

Ellie’s Travel Adventures – Isle of Skye, Whiskey & Dolphins!

Isle of Skye, Whiskey & Dolphins

Hello from Scotland’s cleanest bookkeeper! This has been a week of finding showers, albeit in some unexpected places – but if you can’t be too sure when the next one will be, you take every opportunity! I’ve had 3(!) warm showers this week, which my hair has been very grateful for. The lochs are beautiful […]
