I’m a Berber, I’m a Berber, I’m an original Berber!

They shouted at us. Constantly. Every single person who seemed to be trying to sell us some form of service or product claimed they were an original Berber from the Atlas Mountains. Before we came to Morocco we had never even heard of a Berber. Upon leaving Morocco, we’re now pretty clued up! So, what … Continue reading I’m a Berber, I’m a Berber, I’m an original Berber!

Be our guest, be our guest. Put our service to the test!

Pretty much sums up the lovely home from home comfort you feel as soon as you walk through the door at Hotel Darsor. Ahmed could not do enough to please us and make us feel welcome! Upon arrival we were asked to come in, sit down and drink some tea before anything else was even … Continue reading Be our guest, be our guest. Put our service to the test!

Sit Down, Have a Cuppa. We Can Talk All Night Long…

For the people of Morocco, this tea is more than just a drink, their whole social network seems to revolve around it. I guess it’s pretty similar to us meeting a friend for a pint at our local. Many Moroccans will sit out until the early hours of the morning talking over a tea at … Continue reading Sit Down, Have a Cuppa. We Can Talk All Night Long…

When No, Doesn’t Mean No

I like to think of myself as being fairly well travelled with quite a few different experiences under my belt. I like to think that there isn't much that phases me or many situations that I can't handle myself in. I thought all of this, until my first hour in Marrakech... We had been awake … Continue reading When No, Doesn’t Mean No

This Place is a SHAMBLES!!

Well, not quite. You'll see what I mean... York still remains one of my favourite places in the UK to visit. It really does have absolutely everything for everyone. We only had a short weekend here but it was exactly what we needed, night-life, beautiful buildings and good shops. I feel like every time I … Continue reading This Place is a SHAMBLES!!

The York Roast Co

If you have never heard of the phenomenon that is the Yorkshire Pudding Wrap then you have most definitely been living in hibernation for the last 3-4 months. What are they? Well the name its self is pretty explanatory but there are a number of fillings. Its basically a giant Yorkshire pudding, filled with either … Continue reading The York Roast Co

Get a fringe they said….

It will be fun they said... It will bring out your eyes they said... Really easy to maintain they said... Well I guess being a blogger means I have to try new things so that I can write reviews and give advice to my readers. This and the fact I have a hairdresser who isn't … Continue reading Get a fringe they said….

Hustle and Bustle of the City

This weekend, van life is taking us down a slightly different road. A road which doesn’t end at a beach, lake or loch. Instead, were heading into the City. The City of York to be exact. You’re probably thinking well, how does preparation for this differ to preparation for any other van trip? We thought … Continue reading Hustle and Bustle of the City

The Hospital in the Rocks – Budapest

The Hospital in the Rock was an incredible experience for me and one I would recommend to anyone interested in the tragic history of Budapest. For many people, mainly the British, we think the war ended in the 1940’s however for many, war crimes and terror continued until the late 1980’s in the form of … Continue reading The Hospital in the Rocks – Budapest

Warning Off Winter With Buso!

The end of winter in Hungary is celebrated with a 6 day masked carnival/festival. The Busos festival legend originates for two different stories. One legend states that during the Ottaman (Turkish) times of territory the local villagers fled to nearby swamps and woodland to escape the Ottoman troops. Then one night a hooded man appeared … Continue reading Warning Off Winter With Buso!
