We found our diary entry for our last day on our SE Asia travels back from 2009 and wanted to share it with you as we celebrate 5 years since we got back…
7th June 2009 So here we are – our very last day away from home and it’s our last day in SE Asia. We’re in Kuala Lumpur. So many places have become home over the past 15 months that going back to London just feels like another adventure. We slept in until 11am in our windowless room in which was so stuffy. I long for a good night’s sleep soon! Then we fed up on free breakfast and cught the train to the Petronas Towers – the largest twin buildings in the world. (more…)
Last month, I was kindly invited to join the Dragon and Flagon London Pub Tour (disclaimer: via Twitter for free – lucky me!) and being that I had found myself kind of stuck in a rut with the pubs that I frequent in central London, took up the kind offer only if to provide a useful service to the Way Out Far readership and not simply just to enjoy several pints of London’s finest beer and ale on a Friday night. Honest.
It hit about two days ago. I was sat in front of the television watching a show about people who couldn’t understand why they were putting on weight and then BAM! – my brain woke up from it’s stupor and shouted at me: “YOU HAVEN’T TRAVELLED ON THE TRANS-SIBERIAN EXPRESS YET!!” This is how the travel bug bites (is it the same for you?) and once it had I couldn’t think of anything else and so abandoned my banal TV watching to research, research, research!
A couple of weeks back we headed on a road trip to Cornwall to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary. We had wanted to head down to The English Rivera for some time and couldn’t wait to pick a car, fire up the GoPro and soak in some seaside.
We bought and GoPro Hero as it felt like a lot of our videos are a touch on the shaky side when using any camera bigger than our hands. Vicki was also heading to SXSW 2014, the interactive conference in Austin, Texas (after raving about her trip last year) so we thought we would combine the two together in this video for you. We think the stop animation worked much better than the sped-up video but we’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
Well, one of them is anyway… We’ve been editing our Iceland road trip into a series of YouTube videos. The best way to stay updated on these is to subscribe to our channel just here. We’re particularly proud of this one as we think that it aptly shows the sublime quiet of the snowscapes that we drove through on the first few days of our trip. Enjoy!
Here at Way Out Far, we’re big fans of vintage postcards, often found when stumbling across thrift shops and fleas markets when we are away. Vintage postcards are a great way of seeing how where people used to travel and how they used to travel. We had a rummage around the Brooklyn Flea Market last autumn (or Fall depending what side of the pond you are on) when visiting New York and this is what we found. (more…)
Our dream came true! We found the Northern Lights when on our Iceland Road Trip over Christmas and we want to pass on our advice so that you can try do it yourself when you visit Iceland (and you will visit right?) plus show you some of the pictures we managed to grab before they disappeared. (more…)
Over to the lower west side of New York City is The High Line - a raised park park built on a 1.45-mile section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad. Surely if you’ve been to New York City, you’ve been there? It’s one of the worst-kept secrets in town! We visited one weekday evening last year as the sun was setting and thought it was high-time to share our walk with you through this photo essay…
My name is Vicki and me my husband Josh have had some great adventures, road trips and journies over the years and we want to share them here and hopefully inspire you to do the same. Happy reading and happy travels!
Where am I right now?
Currently back in London after an amazing trip to Cornwall
