America the Beautiful. Visiting National Parks in the US.

If you’re heading to the United States on any kind of road trip or holiday, the chances are you will want to visit a National Park or two. Dedicated as protected lands (and long may that continue), National Parks, Monuments, Forests and Recreation Areas are run by the National Park Service to ensure that the

Defeated by Death Valley. #Zartusacan 12

After spending the night in Ridgecrest, California, the plan was to ride through Death Valley National Park to Pahrump, Nevada. We knew it was going to be windy, it had been howling around our motel all night, but we didn’t really comprehend what that amount of wind would mean in the desert. Sand. Lots and

Hiking in Yosemite National Park. #Zartusacan 10

I think Yosemite National Park is one of my favourite places in the world. It has views like no other, and having visited before we knew that this time around we wanted to do a hike to experience what the park had to offer away from the roads and standard photographs. We chose to hike

Riding over the Golden Gate Bridge. Again. #Zartusacan 07

One of the “must dos” on our list for this trip was to spend a little bit of time in San Francisco. We had 36 hours in the city when we were on our Eagle Rider tour a couple of years ago and felt like we had so much more to see and do, so

An Empty Honey Jar in the Bear Safe. #Zartusacan 06

I think it’s fair to say that we put off the camping thing for the first week of our Zartusacan. It’s not that we didn’t want to or didn’t intend to camp instead of paying for motels and hotels every night, but rather that we haven’t done it for years and were somewhat dreading the amount

Currently Loving: April 2016

Wow this year is going FAST! It could do with slowing down a little to be honest; I hope the next three months don’t go as quickly as the last three. But anyway, it might be a week late but welcome to my latest Currently Loving post, an opportunity for me to present ten of

Chatter, Cooking, Cleaning | Weekly Vlog 20

After two very outdoorsy vlogs it was inevitable that there was going to have to be a kitchen focussed one. This week you’ll hear me chatter chatter chatter, cook a lovely pasta dish, clean my motorbike and show you my currently loving stuff for this month. Here goes with the bullet pointed highlights of my

Motorbikes, Major Oak, Telling Jokes | Weekly Vlog 15

Good afternoon friends! It turns out that once you’ve done 15 episodes of a weeky vlog you can no longer keep count and have no idea what number you’re on! Ah well, it was bound to happen some time. This week’s episode includes lots of fun because I was off work – lots of time outdoors,

Motorbike Tour of Europe – We Rode to Italy and Back

Having had a number of holidays on our motorbikes, including some touring, earlier on in the year we decided to go one step further and do a bit of credit card touring. For those of you who aren’t sure, this road trip style basically refers to a multi-day journey for which you don’t organise your

Exploring Scotland by Motorbike

Earlier this month LincsGeek and I headed on our annual motorcycle trip with our two friends Paul and Rick. This year we decided to head up to Scotland, via Northumberland on the way up and Carlisle on the way back. We love Scotland and have had the pleasure of holidaying and touring in various parts

What’s in your Bag? Femfresh Wipes

This is a post about feminine care when travelling… just saying in case any of my readers would prefer not to read about that kind of thing! When I go on holiday on my motorbike I use this incredibly useful BarBagEvo handlebar bag by Wunderlich. It was a birthday present from LincsGeek (via Nippy Normans

Our Ultimate North American Road Trip

Does anyone have any experience of flying their motorbikes half way around the world, riding several thousand miles on them for a few weeks, and then flying them home again? After a lot of dreaming, and a few discussions with our employer, LincsGeek and I are going to have a bit of an adventure. It’s
