Raftin’ & Rowin’ 🛶 Floating down the Mo Chhu River in an inflatable boat doesn’t really constitute white water rafting but I’ll take it! Bhutan’s rivers are crystal clear and cold as shit!! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be rafting in the Himalayas 🤯🇧🇹 #TravelBhutan #DrukHeritage #WhteWaterRafting

Reading the runestones at Trelleborg Viking Fortress Museum and Village. This was one of Danish King Harald Bluetooth’s many fortifications built across Denmark over 1000 years ago. Did you know that our modern Bluetooth technology draws inspiration from King Harald himself? And that the Bluetooth icon is a combination of his initials? Come learn more about the old King and about Viking life today on the blog.

National day celebrations
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England you’ve been amazing, it’s been lovely to be back in the U.K. but now it’s time to get out of my comfort zone, say cheerio to friends & family and start driving on the right hand side of the road for the first time 😳 . . . Crossing the English Channel today was perfect, campsite is all set up and with jobs done for the day it’s time for a pint & the football. Come on England!! @linseyloves

World cup time! In the spirit of celebrating diversity, I will be posting one picture each day from one of the countries who’ll be playing on any given day that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting or have a connection to through my DNA for instance. With 14 different regions in my DNA, it’s easy to identify with quite a few of the 32 countries 😉 In a post-Trump world, I feel we truly are all connected. Let’s celebrate our differences while remembering our connection to each other! My DNA Journey: Scandinavia 30%, Great Britain 14%, Iberian Peninsula 2%, Western Europe <1%, Finland / Northwest Russia <1%, Africa Southeastern Bantu 23%, Mali 5%, Nigeria 3%, North Africa 3%, Cameroon / Congo 3%, Central Africa 2%, Benin/ Togo 2%, Senegal <1%, West Asia 9%. Today, i’m hanging with my dear England - 14 per cent of my DNA, the country of my godparents (June and Malcolm Bell), the country that gave me my first language, English. Here’s a pic from one of my favourite cities, my dear London. 🇬🇧
Bridges of Bhutan ☸️ It's hard to miss prayer flags when you're travelling through Bhutan. They're undoubtably beautiful to see, but they serve a greater purpose than to just spice up the landscape with a bit of colour! Prayer flags are inscribed with auspicious emblems, symbols, and texts, all of which are prayers and blessings. It's believed that when the wind moves prayer flags, these prayers and blessings become activated, and then are carried through the air. Not only does the flag planter, but everything that is touched by the wind, benefit from the prayers and blessings! 🇧🇹 📸 @travisbluemling // @DrukHeritageTours #Drukheritage #PrayerFlags #TourismBhutan

When I picked a date for the trip I made sure I wasn’t going to miss out on my beautiful friends wedding!!! . . . The weather is never going to be perfect everywhere but it pretty much means we’ll be hitting Sudan at the hottest time of the year. So Ce, when Shielsy & I are sweating it out in Sudan without any beer I’ll remember what a bloody awesome wedding you had & it was all worth it haha. . . . Lots of love @cecet78 & @paulhira . Congratulations & thanks for getting Charlie involved - I know it’s a special cause close to your heart as well ❤️❤️❤️
Whatta Dzong 🏰 👌🏻 The official language of Bhutan is “Dzongkha” and it was supposedly a secret language created by the Bhutanese elite, who resided in fortresses. Word got out that the language was pretty cool, so everyone wanted in on it. Skip a couple hundred years and it’s now the lingua franca! “Dzong” means fortress and “Kha” means language, so the national language, “Dzongkha,” literally means “the language of the fortress.” How cool is that?! 🙏🏼 Why am I talking about Dzongs?! Well, no trip to Bhutan is complete without an official Dzong visit. They're all as striking as they are interesting, but this one in the backdrop, Punakha Dzong, is undoubtably one of the prettiest! 🇧🇹 📸 @chris.parkes.photo // @drukheritagetours #PunakhaDzong #PunakhaValley #BhutanTourism

Don’t think I will be climbing another volcano soon 🌋 but those views were so gorgeous (almost worth it 😂) also pro tip: do not climb a volcano when you are not fit 😅🙈

Don’t talk back 🐃🐃🐃 Spring and Summer are usually yak-free seasons in the mountainous valley of Phobjikha, but we were lucky enough to spot the last few stragglers before they wandered up and out of the valley. Quite impressively, a fully mature male yak can grow to a staggering height of 6 feet at the shoulder and weigh nearly one tonne! Gutted there’s no appropriate yak emoji though 🇧🇹 📸 @drukheritagetours #YaketyYak #PhobjikhaValley #Himalayas
Today my cousin @linseyloves joins me for her section of the drive from London to Valencia. We’ve started with a jaunt around London for a few iconic pics.

Thanks to @timofk1 & @thekiwihaslanded for putting me up for the week and for the endless tips on France Tim, are you sure you don’t want to come along and translate? 😜 . . . .

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . Strictly speaking Ramadan is over (well in London it is). So Eid Mubarak to each and every one of you. . I started this series with a photo of the Royal Palace in Seville, and I am going to end this series with another photo from the same palace. Whenever anyone goes to Andalucia, its always about the Alhambra in Granada or the Mesquita in Cordoba. My one piece of advice is not to overlook Sevilla, especially the Real Alcazar (Royal Palace). Its one of my favourite places to visit in Spain. What's your favourite place to visit in Spain? . . . . I hope you have liked my series. . . . Do you like travelling? What is the one thing you look forward to most when travelling? . . . . . . . #EidMubarak #RoyalPalace #sevilla #lines #realalcazar #andalucia #seville #place_wow #aplacetoremember #IAmATraveller #travellingourplanet #hq_globe #just_features #globelusters #mylpguide #travelanddestinations #guardiantravel #uniladadventure #addictedtotravel #speechlessplaces #exploreourearth #citydetails #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #showthemtheworld #roughguides #travelobsessed #placestotravel #traveloften #architecture_hunter

Hiking through falling snow in the snow covered Scottish Highlands, on our way to try and see if a microvlog post can be shot at the Loch an Eilein inside the Rothiemurchus Forest - so far I've only seen stunning pictures of it, and we're following google map along with road signs. #scotland_insta #thisisscotland #ig_scotland #igersscotland #lovescotland #visitscotland #instascotland #igscotland #explorescotland #scotlandshots #scotlandexplore #scotland_insta #scotlandsbeauty #scotland_lover #ilovescotland #natgeotravel #natgeotravelpic #cnntravel #cnntraveler #bbctravel #bbctravels #condenasttraveler #huffposttravel #guardiantravel #travelvlogger #instatravelling #travelstoke #travelguide

The prettiest pass ⛰️ Crossing from Thimpu to Punakha takes you over the 3100m high Dochula pass, a classic stop on the Bhutanese tourist trail. On a clear day you have the Himalayas as a backdrop and eish it is stunning! Unfortunately the clouds settled in before we were able to snap a clear shot so you'll have to settled for me and some chortens (aka Bhutanese stupas!) 🇧🇹 📸 @DrukHeritageTours // @TravisBluemling #BhutanTourism #PunakhaValley #DrukHeritage

We are counting our blessings for the snowfall warning, while the locals curse their luck! There's powdery white snow everywhere as we trek through the Rothiemurchus forest, wearing thermals, fleece, jacket, gloves, hats - and I am so thankful I have the monkey cap with me for an additional layer!!! It's so cold that the fingers go numb within seconds of taking the gloves off to shoot! #scotland_insta #thisisscotland #ig_scotland #igersscotland #lovescotland #visitscotland #instascotland #igscotland #explorescotland #scotlandshots #scotlandexplore #scotland_insta #scotlandsbeauty #scotland_lover #ilovescotland #natgeotravel #natgeotravelpic #cnntravel #cnntraveler #bbctravel #bbctravels #condenasttraveler #huffposttravel #guardiantravel #travelvlogger #instatravelling #travelstoke #travelguide

I just came back from watching Jurassic World and I still feel like a velocoreptarex may just burst through the window at any moment so here's a good distraction!! A year in 🇻🇳🇻🇳🇻🇳 and a blog post of all my favourite things about here to celebrate. Link in bio. 😊
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Quite possibly the hardest task yet but I’ve managed to track down some clouds! . . Whilst Charlie has been parked up for most of the week I’ve been out and about sorting the last of the logistics that I can at this stage, have managed to get the Ethiopian visa under my belt, just the visa for Sudan to go as it’s now issued for two months instead of three, so still a bit early for the dates I need. . . May take another trip to London after I get Charlie on the ship in Valencia. That’s enough of an excuse for me to come back anyway ❤️ this city 💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️💂🏽‍♂️

Punakha Valley ⛰️ You'd think being in a Himalayan Kingdom would mean nippy weather no matter where you are, but that is absolutely not the case for Punakha. Sitting at 1200m above sea level, this former capital is a bit of a steamy subtropical paradise that's blessed with warm winters and hot summers. Spring mornings treat you to a beautiful mist that covers the valley and apparently the sunrises are second to none. Evidently not enticing enough to make me get out of bed 😴 🇧🇹 📸 @DrukHeritageTours #BhutanTourism #PunakhaValley #DrukHeritage
