. Insta Formula . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Discussion time: we think this is a pretty dam epic scene, Charlie driving our VW camper through the Valley of Fire, Nevada... but... how many times have you seen a very similar picture on Instagram? - In the build up to visiting this stunning corner of The States we saw a lot of similar snaps taken from almost exactly the same spot. Now, does this matter? Is originality important in the world of travel Instagram? For us at least the answer is yes, upon reflection this picture feels a bit like we were box ticking and choosing the โ€˜off the shelfโ€™ Instagram solution rather than getting stuck in and enjoying our own take on the experience. Where do you guys stand on this?

. Plan Making . ๐ŸŒ Right have a little zoom in on our @moleskine Passion Journal, these are the 8 countries on our wish list for 2019... doubt weโ€™ll make all of them but you gotta dream! With the new year on the horizon we are deep in plan making mode - scribbling ideas, making notes and cooking up the ultimate list for a new year of adventure. On that note we want to hear your lists, where are you heading and how do you plan your adventures? - #moleskinepassions#ad

. Flower Power . ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ Before we left on our adventure we bought a variety of beautiful house plants to breath a little life into our home. Whilst we were away, through a combination of neglect (not pointing any fingers ๐Ÿ˜) and a change in temperature they have almost all died... This picture really rubs it in our face. - Exploring Singaporeโ€™s Gardens By The Bay. Tip: @sieglise

. Comfort Zone . ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Where is the craziest, most mind bogglingly bananas place youโ€™ve visited recently? Somewhere that pushed you so far outside of your comfort zone that you learnt something about yourself. - For us (most recently at least) the answer is the city of Kolkata, India. Every single moment we spent there was a sensory bombardment, a fully immersive experience in the best possible way. And this is the exact reason we love to travel. - Exploring central Kolkata, tip: @lifebyronnie

. Whirlwind Adventure . ๐ŸŒ Hello people! We are plugging back into the Insta Matrix after a much needed week break as we settle back into London life. Only now that the fog of jet lag has ascended can we fully process what we have just experienced. - Every single day of the last 2.5 months has been completely unique. New sights, sounds, culture, people and smells to digest on a daily basis meant that our #mrfoggsjourney whizzed by in what felt like a blink of an eye. However now that we are back and the dust is settling we are able to look back and start to take it all in properly for the first time. - 7 countries, 10 weeks, 9 seas, 3 oceans and countless amazing people made for the trip of a lifetime. - As Iโ€™m sure you can imagine we have two hard drives packed with snaps from our adventure so we will be sharing them over the coming weeks.

. Mission Accomplished . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ And just like that our @mrfoggsgb adventure is over! It feels like yesterday that we were setting off for Italy... 10 weeks later and having followed in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg we successfully navigated the world in under 80 days (72 to be precise). 7 countries, 9 seas, 3 oceans and countless unforgettable experiences later and it is now time to say goodbye to our faithful camper and the forests of California in order to head home to London to officially complete the journey. - Thank you everyone for following along, tipping us and just being all round lovely people. Also thank you @mrfoggsgb and @bombaysapphireuk for choosing us to undertake #mrfoggsjourney - we can safely say that we will never forget the experience! - Itโ€™s been emotional

. Vegas Views . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Floating silently over the Nevada Desert as the sun comes up has to be one of the best ways to start the day. Of all the transport methods we have been lucky enough to take on our @mrfoggsgb journey so far this has to be the best! A sunrise hot air balloon flight over Las Vegas and the surrounding desert, what an unreal experience! - A hot air ballon flight has been on our โ€˜listโ€™ for a while now and so to have experienced it and in such a unique location was very special... feeling very lucky ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป - #mrfoggsjourney

. Winter Warmth . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ In November the days in the desert are still lovely and warm but the nights get coooold. The transition from waking up in the van to being ready for action is slow as we make breakfast and defrost in the morning sun. Thanks @columbia_eu for keeping us warm - that plus tea and weโ€™re golden. - Side note: A picture of Charlie smiling is rarer than snow in desert so shout out to @landscapebanks for always providing the lols, even when youโ€™re 5,000 miles away.

Everyday America is treating us to a new and completely unique landscape to explore, the variety here is mind boggling... spoilt rotten! - Here is Charlie navigating the roads of Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada in our trusty stead as the sun goes down. What a beautiful place. - Tip: @imemmarae - #mrfoggsjourney

. Natureโ€™s Playground . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Itโ€™s no secret that California has a crazy catalogue of epic landscapes but who knew that Death Valley was home to this set of stunning sand dunes? - The Mesquite Dunes are โ€˜hiddenโ€™ in plain sight, almost getting lost in the immensity of the National Park, but when youโ€™re there they are show stopping. - We woke up at 5am and walked out in the dark to the highest dune to watch the sunrise. Our reward was one of the most spectacular light shows we have ever seen as the sun turned the dunes and surrounding mountains pinks, reds, purples and yellows. We spent nearly two hours running between the dunes like two big kids given the keys to the playground. Genuinely unforgettable. - Tip: @gdehaan - #mrfoggsjourney

. Hot Creek . ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ So chuffed that we finally got to witness this incredible work of nature! - Hot Creek is a uniquely beautiful and ever changing landscape and is the result of a 700,000 year old explosion. At this point in the remote California mountains the earth releases internal pressure, heat and natural substances creating a series of steaming hot springs, crystal blue pools and toxic gasses. - Thank you @c_devo for pointing us in the right direction. What a gem!
