Last days in NY and the end of our adventure

Last days in NY and the end of our adventure

As promised, I wanted to just share some more of our pictures from the last days in New York which also happened to be the end of our adventure.  Afterwards we flew back to the UK, James got a job and we rented a house back in Sheffield – all back to normal.  I prefer to think of it as us having a holiday from our nomadic life though and I’m sure we’ll get back on the road soon.  It’s…

Housesitting in New York and our first Xmas away from home

Housesitting in New York and our first Xmas away from home

New York, especially at Christmas time was a huge dream for us and…

Düsseldorf Christmas Market – any good?

Düsseldorf Christmas Market – any good?

One of the favourite things that we’ve done was when we visited Düsseldorf Christmas market.  It’s not one of the top German Christmas markets if you read any of the ‘top’ lists around but as we’d never experienced any before, we had nothing to compare it to and as such had a fantastic time.   When we finished up our time in London we needed to get to New York and one of the ways we did it was to fly via…
