A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

So I posted a while back about the fact that Hamilton and I were moving to Canada. Well, little update... We have now moved to Canada. Huge apologies for not mentioning it sooner. I intended on posting a hell of a lot more about the whole thing but somehow didn't manage it. I don't think … Continue reading A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

OTTAWA TO QUEBEC CITY | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

Miraculously we did not fall off the edge of the earth / into Niagara Falls (I just got too busy with work to give an update); we did make it out, and awoke to a chilly day in Ottawa, Canada's capital city.    When deciding where to go in Canada, my Mum and I weren't … Continue reading OTTAWA TO QUEBEC CITY | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

After a morning of Ford filled fun, we continued our travels eastward, to Niagara Falls, ready to drop the car back and then get ourselves to Toronto.

To the extent that before taking this trip, I pretty … Continue reading WATERFALLS AND WHISKY | TENNESSEE | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After an early morning filled with the excitement of picking up our rental car and entering a land of dinosaurs, you might think it was about time for a rest.
