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

Holiday Heaven – My Trip of a Lifetime

How do you know when you are on the trip of a lifetime? How do you know when you are in “holiday heaven”? This time last year, give or take a week, I returned home from what I described prior departure as the trip of my lifetime. A year later I know for sure that it was

Review: Flight001 Spacepak from Bear & Bear

Despite loving travel and touring, and having no problem living out of a bag for a few days at a time, I find packing incredibly stressful. That stress is multiplied when I’m packing to go off on my motorbike for a few days. With very limited space, how am I supposed to choose what to

The View from the Shard

Having seen New York from the Empire State Building and Top of the Rock (both stunning and well worth doing if you’re ever in the Big Apple), I have been very keen to see what London looks like from one of its newest tourist attractions, the View from the Shard. Designed by Master Architect Renzo

30 Days Wild – Days 29-30 and some Motorcycling

One of the reasons I love to ride a motorbike is that when I do, I feel very close to the world through which I travel. There is a very special bond between a biker and nature. I’ve mentioned this before, but I liken motorcycling to meditation in some ways – just you, your own

Thames RIB Experience

What’s the best way to see London? Some say from the river is the best place, on a boat trip. Something I’ve done in other cities around the world, but never in my own capital city to my recollection. The other Saturday I changed that by going on a Thames RIB Experience – not your

My #MobileTravelChallenge – Join in!

I love going on little travel adventures. And big ones. And when I do, I love to take photographs on my phone in an attempt to keep hold of the memories that each journey provides. My phone is forever tied to my hand and once I’ve stopped and taken in the view for myself, had

Walking The Stephen Langton Trail

The Stephen Langton Trail is a newly devised walking route celebrating 800 years since the sealing of the Magna Carta. The 16.5 mile trail takes walkers from Langton-by-Wragby into Lincoln itself. I’ll let you read about the history over on the Visit Lincoln page dedicated to it, this post is all about the walking. Langton-by-Wragby

Today we are treated to a guest post by Rachel Campbell on one of my favourite topics – walking. Rachel considers five of the best walking trails in Europe. Be warned, this post make you want to travel!  We are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by vast, open landscapes and astonishing scenery in the UK and just across the

A Standup Paddleboard (SUP) Lesson

SUP – Standup Paddleboarding (or stand up paddleboarding or stand-up paddle boarding or however you are actually supposed to write it) – has been on my bucket list for a little while. I have always loved water sports and this is one of the few I haven’t had the opportunity to try. That was until

Tips for your Day Hike Pack

There are two types of people when it comes to packing for any kind of trip. The most common type, I think, are those who pack too much. An extra pair of pants, extra socks, extra food, extra shoes. I definitely include myself in that – for anything more than one night I tend to bring something home un-used. The
