1. Making friends with the locals, yesterday morning leaving Roncesvalles. He was farmer that seemed to be waiting to talk to pilgrims and steal kisses of the ladies! Yes I know I looked like I escaped from Disneyland, I’m then recognisable and it’s a good talking point! #caminodesantiago #pilgrim #rain #spain #farmer #roncesvalles

     
  2. Well I will be in France tomorrow, need to prepare myself. #chocolatecake #cake #tea #patisserieValerie

     
  3. Arrived in London. Nice to see the Union Jacks flying in Victoria…. #unionjack #flag #london #tube

     
  4. And so the journey begins! Everything I have for the next 5 weeks- 3 pairs of socks. 3 pants, 1 dress, 1 leggings, 1 shorts, 1 fleece, 3 vests, 1 tshirt, 1 pjs, 1 journal, 1 book, 1 gopro, some cables, toiletries, 1 sleeping bag, 1 travel towel, 1 hat, 1 sunglasses, 1 bikini, 1 sports bra, 1 flip flops, 1 rain coat, 1 shell = 1 bag - 8.4kgs. It’ll weigh less tomorrow as I’ll be wearing some of the clothes. I have an interview in London, so didn’t want to rock up like a rambler!! #caminodesantiago #walking #backpacker

     
  5. This morning at the pool, we’d arrived at night to the most awesome hotel and pool facilities of our trip, the crazy thing was it was the cheapest but nicer than the 4* resorts. One of the pools had a sand beach in it- amazing! Waiting to board back to rainy England now. Bye #lasvegas #roadtrip #palmtrees #pool #summer

     
  6. The kiss statue base on the photo taken in Time Square on VJ Day. This stands to the side of USS Midway in San Diego. #sailor #nurse #ww2 #kiss #statue #navy

     
  7. Salvation Mountain, Slab City, the middle of no where! #roadtrip #usa #god #landscape

     
  8. Just been upgraded to an awesome suite with this amazing view. The bonus of being ‘our first visit to San Diego’ #yachts #boats #sea #seascape #roadtrip

     
  9. 'Follow the yellow brick road' Salvation Mountain. 3 hour drive to get there, it's in the middle of nowhere, but worth the view. The creator has been working on it since 1984! #yellowbrickroad #paint #sculpture #yellow #roadtrip #

     
  10. Today we drove through the whole of Joshua Tree National Park, (from Joshua to Cottonwood) initially it was very interesting seeing different boulders and odd shaped trees and cacti, after 3 hours, we got stuck in there for an extra 2 hours due to flash floods. The last hour was pretty tedious desert landscape. Then headed to Niland and Salvation Mountain…. #california #joshuatree #tree #storm #desert
