Colca ____ Last time we were in Peru, we were hit with a bout of travel fatigue in Arequipa and simply had no desire to trek the Colca Canyon. Instead, we hunkered down in a cheap hospedaje and gorged on instant noodles and TV shows for a few days. Naturally, this meant that hiking the second-deepest Canyon in the world was high up on our list for this Peruvian adventure. As you may have seen on Stories, it was quite a kerfuffle to actually get to the start point but, once there, we were blessed with near-empty dusty trails, sweeping views, and unforgettable hospitality over our three day route. And, once back to our hostel in Arequipa with aching limbs and tired feet, we let ourselves indulge in instant noodles and TV shows - for just one night. p.s. can you spot Emily? #TheConstantlyCurious#TravelDustyPeru ____ #peru#perutravels#visitperu#colcacanyon#discoverperu#iloveperu#weloveadventures#peoplewhoadventure#welivetoexplore#wildernessculture#passionpassport#exploremore#thegreatoutdoors#nextstopnature#adventureculture#lifeofadventure#getoutstayout#seeyououtthere#goneoutdoors#eclecticshots#thediscoverer#folkscenery#theoutbound#mytinyatlas#suitcasetravels#shewhowanders#womenwhoexplore#femmetravel

Yellow ____ In Paraty, a popular town four hours away from Rio, we sipped straight cachaça, island-hopped from paradise to paradise, searched for waterfalls in the forest, and found our photography mojo in its beautiful colonial streets (replete with the most ridiculous cobblestones we'll ever set foot upon). These doors, and this dress, were meant to be together. #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #paraty#igersbrasil#lovebrazil#visitbrasil#theprettycities#theculturetrip#theglobewanderer#mytinyatlas#lifewelltravelled#letsgoeverywhere#femmetravel#travelingtheworld#postcardplaces#sheisnotlost#girlsborntotravel#ladiesgoneglobal#shewhowanders#womenwhoexplore#girlslovetravel#dametraveler#wearetravelgirls#livetotraveltraveltolive#wheretonext#flashesofdelight#suitcasetravels#speechlessplaces#theeverygirltravels#roamnation#abmcolorfullife

Rio ____ And, just like that, our first week back in South America is already over. In a slightly serendipitous (or coincidental?) way, we've started this trip in the city where our two-year Latin American odyssey ended back in 2016. To be frank, back then, Rio de Janeiro didn't leave a great impression on us - we had no sunshine, the city's great contrast in fortunes were all too evident to see, we had a Charlie Chaplin impersonator tell us to f*ck off in Copacabana. Thankfully, three more days exploring here in the glorious sunshine has helped us to finally get our heads around the former capital and its unique topography; and a real lesson for us is that any first-time in Rio should get up high at the beginning to fully understand how this city works. Christ the Redeemer was too crowded to enjoy the views, but sunset at Sugarloaf mountain was serene. p.s. It feels so good, so bloody good, to be back on the road with our backpacks. Thanks as ever for following along on our journeys. #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #riodejaneiro#igersbrasil#lovebrazil#visitbrasil#theprettycities#theculturetrip#theglobewanderer#mytinyatlas#lifewelltravelled#letsgoeverywhere#femmetravel#travelingtheworld#postcardplaces#sheisnotlost#girlsborntotravel#ladiesgoneglobal#shewhowanders#womenwhoexplore#girlslovetravel#dametraveler#wearetravelgirls#livetotraveltraveltolive#wheretonext#flashesofdelight#suitcasetravels#speechlessplaces#theeverygirltravels#epicviews#roamnation

Adventures ____ Since the moment we left Latin America back in March 2016, we always knew we'd return to the place that will forever have a small piece of hearts. Now, two and half years later, after countless adventures across countries old and new, we are doing exactly that. Tomorrow we fly to Brazil to begin a four and a half month trip across Peru, Ecuador and Colombia - and we are bloody excited! As we're putting the final touches to our packing this evening over a glass (or two!) of red wine, we thought you guys might like to see what we are, or more importantly, aren't bringing.

Exploration ____ [#sponsored] High in the hills of Umbria, we walked in the surprising sunshine of late October. Stubborn snow dusted the mountain peaks and the distant forests were rusting into the shades of autumn. Juniper bushes, prickly and pregnant with their bounty, were scattered before us in this single isolated valley; their dark purple berries primed to be picked from bush to bag by hands both experienced and novice. Gin begins with juniper; it made sense for us to start there too. Those of you who have been with us since the beginning will know that Along Dusty Roads was created around our dinner table in east London after an evening of gin back in 2014. And so, when @homeofplymouthgin asked us to join them in the north of Italy to pick the finest juniper berries for an exciting project (which we'll be able to tell you more about next year), how could we say no? #PlymouthGin#Gin ____ #theconstantlycurious#italia#umbria#ilikeitaly#europeadventure#adventuretravel#travelcouple#creativetravelcouples#coupleswhotravel#widenyourworld#stayandwander#welivetoexplore#folkmagazine#adventureinspired#roamtheplanet#speechlessplaces#modernoutdoors#mytinyatlas#whatitalyis#prettylittletrips#travelustcouples#welivetoexplore#wandermore#goneoutdoors#finditliveit#mylpguide#chasethelight#suitcasetravels

Arch ___ We waited fifteen minutes to get this shot, and it wasn't even the bloody photo we wanted to get! Wandering around Faro's old town led us to several of these wonderful little archways, and we thought this one framed the cobblestones and whitewashed buildings quite splendidly. Trouble is though, that as soon as one set of people got out of shot and Emily took position with her camera, someone else would wander in from a side street or from behind and start the waiting game all over again. We eventually gave up on capturing the shot of the empty street and the arch which we originally wanted, but this 'test shot' of a gentleman strolling down on his own turned out to be worth the wait. p.s. this is also karma for all the times we may have intentionally strolled in front of someone who has been taking bloody ages to take a photo... #TheConstantlyCurious ___ #Faro#AlgarveCoast#theglobewanderer#suitcasetravels#letsgosomewhere#athomeintheworld#loveportugal#exploreportugal#portugal_wonders#wonderlustportugal#travelportugal#ig_portugal#topportugalphoto#iloveportugal#archdaily#exploretocreate#mytinyatlas#theprettycities#roamtheplanet#exploreeverything#eclectic_shotz#mycanonstory#mycanon#thediscoverer#topeuropephoto#postcardsfromaroundtheworld#postcardplaces#instagramportugal#cobblestone

Not Australia ____ Yep, we thought it looked like a scene from Great Ocean Road too. But no, this was one of the beautiful little beaches we passed by on our day’s hike along the Algarve coast in Portugal. The Algarve has a touristy reputation, and it is definitely well deserved (the midnight karaoke bar underneath our Airbnb is all the evidence you need for this...if we hear the opening to ‘Sweet Caroline’ one more time by a drunk Englishman then we cannot be held responsible for our actions!), but most of its cove beaches and cliff side hiking trails have kept an intimate feel to them. It’s definitely a part of the world we’d head back to in ‘off season’. #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #Algarve#theglobewanderer#AlgarveCoast#suitcasetravels#letsgosomewhere#athomeintheworld#loveportugal#exploreportugal#portugal_wonders#wonderlustportugal#travelportugal#ig_portugal#topportugalphoto#iloveportugal#seastheday#oceantherapy #welivetoexplore#exploretocreate#lifeofadventure#mytinyatlas#seeyououtthere#roamtheplanet#exploreeverything#eclectic_shotz#folkscenery#visualsofearth#discoverglobe#earthfocus#thediscoverer

Whirlwind ____ The mountain of stuff we have to do before flying to Brazil next week is starting to feel insurmountable. We bought the most boring travel equipment on earth yesterday (yay hiking socks, yay new hiking boots, yay walking poles (god we're old), yay fleeces), but now that we've ticked that off the list, the list isn't actually getting shorter. Accounts to finish off, a three-day conference in London, some family time, friend time, flights to Scotland, train rides from Hereford, deadlines to meet, more travel kit to buy, hangovers to get over, a monthly newsletter to finish, and all the other things that we have to do to keep ADR ticking over in the background. So, naturally, there has been stress, there have been arguments, there have been to-do lists about to-do lists. But hey, this is what we love. And doing what you love isn't an instant pass to endless sunsets and no responsibilities; invariably it actually means spending most of your day working on projects or setting up new ones and being the only person responsible for things you didn't even know about a few months before. And hard work also means rewards, like being able to head off backpacking for four months together! We will make it up the mountain (and not just because we bought ourselves some walking poles). #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #moroccolives#muchmorocco#mytinyatlas#passionpassport#letswander#travelawesome#neverstopexploring#welivetoexplore#seetheworld#wonderfulplaces#lifewelltravelled#widenyourworld#exploretocreate#theglobewanderer#flashesofdelight#suitcasetravels#wonderlustmorocco#sheisnotlost#wearetravelgirls#dametraveler#womenwhoexplore#shewhowanders#femmetravel#stayandwander#letsgosomewhere#sheexplores#theprettycities#cntraveler#darlingescapes

Waterfall ____ It's impossible to spend any amount of time on Instagram, and not recognise this spot - the beautiful Gasadalur Waterfall. Once tucked away in one of the Faroe Islands' most isolated corners, a new tunnel has opened up this spectacular natural beauty to all those with a vehicle. Why on earth then, you may wonder, did we spend five hours hiking to and from it over the top of a mountain in the thickest of fog along an old postman's trail? We got lost (very lost), we got wet, and we got dirty. But, we loved it. We all get told, time and time again, that it's the journey not the destination that matters - but in a world of instantaneous satisfaction, of bucket-list ticking and a week's worth of sightseeing squeezed into two days, taking the time to see and experience places and sights the way they used to be is less and less common. We're big road trip lovers, but this day served as an excellent reminder that not everything in a destination can, or should be, enjoyed from behind the wheel. P.S. we've just written a guide to hiking to this epic spot, hop on over to the blog if you're planning a trip to the Faroes. #TheContantlyCurious#visitfaroeislands#faroeislands ____ #welivetoexplore#wildernessculture#passionpassport#exploretocreate#exploremore#liveforthestory#thegreatoutdoors#nextstopnature#mynorthadventure#adventureculture#lifeofadventure#getoutstayout#theoutbound#natgeotravel#theglobewanderer#mytinyatlas#seeyououtthere#roamtheplanet#exploreeverything#goneoutdoors#eclectic_shotz#folkscenery#visualsofearth#greatnorthcollective#discoverglobe#earthfocus#thediscoverer

Vieux ____ The beating heart of Marseille through the centuries, its old port may not look so new any more after a slightly generic facelift in 2013, but it continues to remain central to life in France’s second city. Visiting cities which aren’t the capital has been a big theme for us in 2018, and we want to continue it next year too. Aside from usually having way less tourist traffic, they also feel closer to the identity which makes them unique or interesting in the first place (rather than simply packaging it up to visitors).

Cave ____ It transpired that the Iberian Peninsula was right in the path of a wee hurricane this weekend, which meant the weather was a little more wet and windy than we expected. The upshot of no longer being able to explore the beaches and caves right on our doorstep, like we planned, was that we spent hours and hours and hours working on our route through Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia. And buying flights. And writing lists. And buying camera equipment. A day like that was well overdue for us to be honest; and rainy days with cups of tea poring over articles, blog posts, notebooks and maps are never going to go out of fashion when it comes to travel. We have planned to do 4-5 multi-day hikes whilst out there, which we know is probably too ambitious, but we are set on it. So we thought we should ask if any of you had any particular favourites hikes from those three countries? #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #Algarve#girlsborntotravel#dametraveler#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#theglobewanderer#sheisnotlost#AlgarveCoast#wearetravelgirls#ladiesgoneglobal#globelletravels#suitcasetravels#womenwhoexplore#shewhowanders#femmetravels#letsgosomewhere#sheexplores#girlsborntotravel#athomeintheworld#loveportugal#exploreportugal#portugal_wonders#wonderlustportugal#travelportugal#ig_portugal#pocket_portugal#super_portugal#topportugalphoto#iloveportugal

Peace ____ Latvia now, in our minds at least, is a place of nature, lakes, tea towels over dishes of food, and wild beaches. Places like Kuldīga, a gem of a chocolate box town symbolic of Latvia’s past before the past where we sat on a wooden jetty by the Venta river, basking under the morning sun, and not having any desire to leave or change a thing.

Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop!

That you take inspiration or advice from our blog and newsletter, or just like following our adventures on this little Instagram feed, really does mean so much to us both. It motivates us to be better photographers, to be better writers, and to be better travellers - for us and for you. So, obrigado, merci, gracias, cheers, paldies, grazie, tack, and asante wherever you are in the world. p.s - we learned that a group of peacocks is call an ‘ostentation’!?
