Denmark 7 | Copenhagen, Freetown Christiania and a Lot of Walking

We woke up leisurely as the daylight filtered through the thin curtains of our little AirB&B apartment and with some breakfast in us we were ready to head out and explore the city! Unfortunately, after searching every nook and cranny, it turned out the previous guests had disappeared with the car permit which we needed…

#17 Foot Plates!

During the process of the floor, we were trying to think of the best way we could finish the visible edges by the doors that would look as tidy as possible. We brainstormed lots of ideas and were willing to just pick one to try, when Callum found something on one of the camper forums…

Howtown to Glenridding – An Old Favourite

I had a day to myself with lots to catch up on, but the weather was great so I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to get out and do some walking. We headed into the Ullswater valley in the morning as we usually would however when Callum went to work, I got to smugly…

Barf, Broom Fell & Lord’s Seat – A North-Western Adventure

We were hoping to go camping in the fells the evening before but the forecast was miserable for pretty much everywhere so we decided to rearrange. Waking up the next morning however, it was a glorious day – I’d say one of the best we have had in the Lakes. Having a full day ahead…

Arnison Crag and Birks – The Lakes at Dusk

Another beautiful day and another opportunity for a walk after work! As the evenings get longer we can afford to choose the slightly longer, more challenging walks as long as they are close by. This time we decided to head to Patterdale and tick off a couple of the peaks above, Arnison Crag is the…

Little Mell Fell – An Evening Stroll

The weather has been getting better and better, like spring has finally hit the North, so after work we decided to head out for a walk to try and make the most of it! As the evenings aren’t yet at their longest we have been picking off the smaller peaks one by one, making sure…

Bowscale Fell – A Sombre Wander

About a month ago, Callum and I had to say the hardest goodbye to our beloved Quinn. That old boxer of ours was 33% of our little family, not a single decision in the last 10 and a half years had been made without her being a part of it. For the last year or…

Great Mell in the Snow

It was supposed to be another day dedicated to the van conversion, however it had snowed a fair amount the previous day and overnight and we woke up to a glorious sunny day with clear blue skies. It was a no brainer – we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go for a walk and…

A Little Wander Up Gowbarrow Fell

There is no denying we absolutely adore the outdoors – and before we took on the van build most of our weekends were spent out walking the fells, canoeing, camping and just generally exploring the Lakes. It has been awesome how quick the project has progressed and we are keen to get the van ‘campable’…
