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.
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…)
Back in December, we headed off for our planned Iceland road trip around the island between Christmas and the start of the new year. Our main aim was to get away from it all and seek out the hallowed Northern Lights. If Joanna Lumley can do it, then so can we! Remember that we had only really done road trips in warm countries, so we really had to think ahead this time and make some preparations that we may have usually left until we were on the road.
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…
Way Out Far are working people and as such we can’t give you daily destination stories, but we are excited to finally be able to tell you about our planned Iceland road trip in December. There’s quite a bit of research required,such as where to stay, what car to drive and where to stop to try and see the fabled aurora borealis and we thought that we would share some of our research with you in the hope that we may inspire you to do the same this Christmas…
Two years ago this week, Way Out Far Visited The Lake District up in the north-east of England. Beforehand, we really had no idea about the area, asking ourselves ‘What so magical about The Lake District’? yet it was a trip that would end up changing our lives…
We just got back from our third year in a row at The Fringe Festival Edinburgh. As big fans of comedy, it’s been an annual treat for us to head up to Scotland and discover new comedians, acts and craziness and this year was no difference. We’ve never written about our experiences before, so thought it might we worth sharing with you what makes a great Edinburgh trip and perhaps recommend a few people to go and see in the last week.
