Ibiza Road Trip

wayoutfar_ibiza-road-tripAt a rather swollen 26 weeks pregnant, we headed off to Ibiza to attend the wedding of a dear friend. It was decided that we would try and make a trip of it rather than attend just for the ceremony as it would be the last time that I could fly before the baby arrived and we weren’t too sure if we would be going away again over the coming months. In between wedding duties and relaxing, our mission was to try and see if we could see as much of the island as possible, having only stayed in tourist trap San Antonio many years ago, which meant hiring a car and getting our Ibiza road trip (and sunnies) on!

    The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014

    wayoutfar_edinburgh-fringe-2014-train-ticket
    This month, it was our annual trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which we have attended for the past four years. We’ve already given our best hints and tips for having a great festival in this post right here, but wanted to show off some of our pictures from this summer’s jaunt. It will be the last time that we visit the Fringe for a couple of years as we are expecting baby this Christmas and can’t imagine how we’ll do the trip next year, so we made sure we booked a nice hotel in the centre of the city, researched some good comedy to see (yes we know there’s more to the Fringe but we LOVE comedy!) and waddled off to soak in the ambiance.

      The ‘Preggers’ Euro Road Trip (Part 1)

      The Euro Road Trip
      By @wayoutfarvicki

      Last week we headed off in a camper van for a week long mystery Euro road trip with no idea where we would end up and only our ferry tickets booked. Being no strangers to a mystery driving tour, we wanted the trip to be spontaneous and fun, enabling us to discover more of a family-friendly Europe that we could visit again and again in the future, especially now that we were planning to have a baby later this year.

        The Final Day of Our SE Asia Travels

        Our last day in SE Asia - Kuala LumpurBy @wayoutfarvicki

        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.

          A Night with Dragon and Flagon London Pub Tours

          The Ship Tavern, HolbornBy @wayoutfarvicki

          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.

            The Travel Bug Has Hit: Trans-Siberian Express Anyone?

            wayoutfar-trans-siberian-express-mongolia

            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!

              Graffiti from Around the World

              London grafitti
              We are big fans of interesting graffiti and everywhere we have been around the world, we try and stop and look in those nooks and crannies in the back streets to find any gems we can take pictures of. In this post, we share with you some of our favourites from our travels and try to remember when and where they were taken. If you have any of your own pictures to share, we love to see them, so leave a post in the comments below.

                Road Trip to Cornwall

                wayoutfar-cornwall-lands-end-sign 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.

                  Road Trip to SXSW 2014 (with GoPro)

                  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.
