Home sweet home! ⛵️ It’s so crazy to even hear those words... - After travelling for such a long time, not knowing where we’d end up, to finally have a base is a feeling like you wouldn’t believe. 🙏🏼 - Never in a million years did we know we’d be able to turn this lifestyle into a career. And to own a boat? The thought hadn’t even crossed our minds. - We were too busy thinking about where we would stay each night, which places we wanted to visit the next day, and where we would eat for dinner. So much time and effort goes into travel that you don’t see behind the scenes. So to have a HOME, a place to rest and relax without having to think too much, is a dream come true! - We’re so stoked with our little boat home and are fully taking advantage of this down time right now! Although it will soon be time to go again! 😍🌍 - Ps. It’s been a fun week dog sitting little Oscar, although we’re not sure he’s a fan of us kissing in front of him yet! 🐶😘😅 - Which is your favourite shot?

Next adventure booked!!! 🙌🙌🙌 ~ So, the next wander will take me to the Netherlands, specifically Amsterdam. But, I’m thinking, why not have a couple stops along the way?! It’s early days in the planning stage, but I might stop off in France & Belgium along the way...I’ve already visited all 3 countries, however there’s plenty I haven’t seen already. I have just over a week to cram in as much as I can 🤯 ~ Keep looking forward, keep planning and the rest will follow...next stop: 🇫🇷🇧🇪🇳🇱 >>>Any recommendations out there?
The Yellow Drawing Room at Harewood House. Consistency of motif was something Robert Adam regularly sought in his designs. In the Yellow Drawing Room, the star and circle of the carpet echo the beautiful ceilings without directly copying the pattern. The lozenges in the frieze running round the cornice contain plaques with cupids riding sea-horses which is repeated above the doors. Two splendid looking glasses by Thomas Chippendale dominate the room like others in the House, these were partly stripped of their ornamentation by the Victorians and painstakingly restored in 1993-4. The third mirror over the fireplace is by Chippendale’s son, also called Thomas, who completed the Harewood commission after his father’s death in 1779. This room has undergone a series of change since it was created. A day book for September 1769 mentions painting, “a specimen of colours for Mr. Adam’s approbation”. Later in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Yellow Drawing Room was known as the Rose Drawing Room due to its light pink wall silks. When the room was restored in the 1990’s to the 18th century design, a paint scrape confirmed the original colours which you can now see in the ceiling. Photography by: Paul Barker
