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.
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…)
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…

All part of the experience! Austin is not like the rest of Texas for sure. It’s exists as a very cool and independent hub in a state otherwise known for cowboys and ranches.
The South by Southwest Festival (a.k.a SXSW) is an annual music, film, and interactive conference and festival held in Austin over nine days. It’s grown beyond expectations since its humble late-’80s beginnings as a regional showcase for musicians from the south-west corner of the United States. It’s the place for artists, companies and individuals alike to showcase their acts, films, products and get together to discuss these with like minded people over a taco and a cocktail. (more…)
I couldn’t help but share this video of the reaction of New Yorkers as the power came back on in the Lower East Side of Manhattan on Friday after Hurricane Sandy. You would have thought it was New Year’s Eve in Times Square!
My name is Vicki and me my husband Josh have had some great adventures, road trips and journeys 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?
