Essential Travel Photography Tips, with Andrew Caley – Part 1

Andrew Caley

One of the most awesome things about Our Global Adventure is the people that we connect to who share our passion. They find us and we find them through the interests, idea’s and plans we share through others we meet and of course, on-line.

Andrew Caley is a pro photographer from Gloucestershire in the UK. On his website, he says he is an “emerging photographer”, but you only need to take a quick look at his work on Instagram, Trover or Facebook to see exactly how professional Andrew really is. Presently, Andy is working hard on building his travel and landscape portfolio in preparation for a round the world trip!

Andrew connected to us through our shared interest on Trover, and we’re excited to be working with him to share his knowledge on great travel photography – I’ve already taken some great tips from Andy’s post and also from his excellent tutorials on his youtube channel, but, without further ado, here is the first part of Essential Travel Photography Tips, with Andrew Caley…

Booking.com the Best Travel App Since Sliced Bread

Disclaimer: Booking.com has not endorsed this post, nor are we receiving payment for writing it, however if you choose to use our affiliate links we may receive a tiny payment for which we would be eternally grateful. This post has been written and inspired because we really do use and love Booking.com and we’d like to share why.

OK now that the official stuff is out of the way, let me tell you the honest inspiration for this post. I have had the Booking.com app on my iPhone since November last year. We arrived in Dublin, Ireland and found ourselves in need of cheap accommodation. A quick Google search pointed the way to Booking.com, a search tool that is easy to use for searching, comparing, and booking accommodation. Six months later, and we’re still using Booking.com to find the best deals on accommodation, so we thought, ‘Hey we need to share how cool this is’.

Better yet, not only is the Booking.com website excellent, we love the phone app even more and here’s why… Continue reading

Our Top Tips for Visiting Barcelona

Our Global Adventure recently visited Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain. From our current base in Ireland, Barcelona is just a quick 2.5 hour flight away, so it made the perfect destination for a getaway week. This was the second time that Simon and I had visited Barcelona, but it was the first time that we have taken the kids. We knew that they would love the city. It is very beautiful, with wide clean boulevards for strolling along, and plenty of cafes for a pause, plus a mixture of great architecture and green spaces. The Spanish are incredibly friendly, and love to share their culture and language with others, and the local cuisine is great! What’s not to love about this fabulous city?  Continue reading

Where to go if you are visiting Ireland on a budget.

We have been living in and touring Ireland for almost four months, and during that time we have visited lots of the ‘must see’ tour book recommended tourist attractions around the country. Some of them have had some pretty hefty entrance fees, but on the other hand, we have also had plenty of awesome free experiences. So, if you are visiting Ireland and you would like to stretch your cash further, here’s our advice on the places worth paying for, and also what the free (or cheaper) options are. Continue reading

Why You Should Travel In The Off-Season

Rugged up against the cold, but loving exploring Ireland in Winter.

Rugged up against the cold, but loving exploring Ireland in Winter.

At the moment we are travelling in our second winter in 7 months. We have done back-to-back winters from Australia to Ireland. Yes, we could do with a sunny beach and a tan about now, but there’s lots of reasons why we wouldn’t have it any other way. Traveling in the off-season suits us as family travelers, and here are some of the advantages to putting away the bathing suit, and hitting the road in winter instead. Continue reading

Travel Hack – Power Adaptors

Wouldn’t it be so much simpler if the world could just coordinate? All drive on the same side of the road? Stick with the same weights and measures? Agree on the degrees? How about Electricity? Wouldn’t it be great if every socket and plug just matched, and the voltage was the same?
