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…

London Road Trip

London Road Trip


We’re working people at Way Out Far, so we have to plan our travel carefully and are all too aware that we cannot provide exciting adventures to readers all the time. This is why we hope that you find past stories, such as the Mongol Rally and The Rickshaw Run fun and interesting to read while you wait for our next road trip. Right now, we are counting down the days until The Edinburgh Festival and we’ll be doing that journey by train. In the meantime, we thought that we would hit our local area for a London road trip to show you that you can take great trips close to home – especially in the UK.

The Magic Road – An Ireland Road Trip Must!

The Magic Road – An Ireland Road Trip Must!

During our Ireland road trip over the Easter break this year, we had panned to visit Kilwatermoy, a small place that Josh lived as a child in the 1990s. Our trip down memory lane only took the morning, so that afternoon, we headed off for the Mahon Falls in search of The Magic Road, a place that Josh had visited as a teenager  where the optical illusion of the surrounding scenery makes you believe that the road goes uphill, when in fact it’s downhill and you can test this yourself, by releasing the handbrake of your car and seeing if it rolls. It’s a bit harder to find than we planned, so off we headed to see if it was truly magic.

What Makes a Great Ireland Road Trip?

Way Out Far spent this Easter driving around the south west of Ireland. No strangers to a good road trip, we have often felt that it is only done with as little preparation as possible (which is the overhang from our Mongol Rally days), but this particular trip was celebrating our first year wedding anniversary, so it had to be organised a little in advance first. Vicki let’s you in on what makes a great Ireland road trip.
