Explore the UK

I lived in the UK until I ventured to Australia in my late 20s. More recently, Lars and I spent over a year in Scotland, road-tripping to its many nooks and crannies.

We’ve also experienced the practicality of house-sitting across the UK, making our journey more affordable amidst a plethora of inviting homes.

Our explorations, ranging from Dunnottar Castle’s ruins to the Scottish Highlands’ wild expanses, have inspired the guides you’ll discover here on Lifejourney4two.

Our love for the UK doesn’t just include Scotland – we’ve explored the quintessential English Cotswolds, the serene waters of the Lake District, and the picturesque scenery of southwest England, where I was born.

Stay tuned for future UK adventures, and feel free to reach out with any questions about your own trip planning.
