VW campervan adventure – part two

On three day we decided to hang out along the coast south of St Leonards Cove. We popped up the campervan’s back door and sat, staring out at the sea, eating a picnic and sunbathing.   For the third night we decided to drive across Devondown the picturesque coast line, trundling through the narrow, hedge-lined, country lanes to Hartland [...]

VW campervan – part three

As the days went on we fell more and more in love with our campervan Ordell. We slept in her canvas pop-up roof every night and by some stroke of luck woke up feeling more refreshed and happy than you could imagine. The last place on our list was Croyde Bay and Woolacombe in north [...]

Part 1: Goodbye London, hello Jamaica

Excitement woke me up two hours before my alarm this morning. Setting my alarm at 7.20am on a Saturday was already worryingly early. (I'm a lie in bed until noon kinda girl). However 5.30am me and my boyfriend Jimmy were wide awake charged with excitement about our Caribbean adventure. We got to Gatwick an hour [...]

Part 4: Early morning sunrise in Jamaica

The jet-lagged kicked in a 5am today. After lying in bed for half an hour, trying to get back to sleep, we decided to knock it on the head and get up to see the sunrise. Which was utterly beautiful. And we spotted a local fisherman (see bottom picture) dancing in the morning sun. Perfect start [...]

Part 5: Island life

We headed over to the private off-shore island today. It's rustic, everything is made from the natural island materials. Beautiful lanterns were hanging everywhere, bamboo and palm leaf umbrellas and wooden, four-poster love-shacks with white curtains and a double bed. There was also a nudist beach, a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Oh, and a [...]

Part 6: Do go chasing waterfalls.

We hired a car and drove from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios today to go and climb Dunns River waterfalls. It took about 1 hour 45mins to get there and was a hilarious journey of non-stop horns, cars swerving all over the road, undertaking, overtaking and locals trying to sell us stuff. Within minutes of [...]
