​We run this city. We took a morning off together in Rotterdam to discover the city in a different way to usual. Using the new @runnincity app, we pounded streets which we wouldn't have discovered otherwise, as well as taking in iconic sights like the Erasmus bridge and these quirky yellow cube houses. The free app has guided audio running tours to help you discover more than 150 cities around the world. It was a cool way to get some exercise on the road whilst getting to know a new place at the same time. You can download the app on Android and iOS, and the link is in our bio just now. Do you ever discover a new city by going on a run? #ad #runnincity #runinrotterdam #sightjogging #sightrunning #runningapp #TheConstantlyCurious #Rotterdam #rottergram #lookingup_architecture #igersrotterdam #discoveryourcity #loverotterdam #girlswhotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #womenwhoexplore #shewhowanders #femmetravel #girlsborntotravel #lifewelltravelled #theglobewanderer #travelandlife #cntraveler #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #rotterdammakeithappen #traverse18 #passionpassport ...more

"Which of my photos is my favourite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow". We love this line from Imogen Cunningham, who was a pioneering female photographer last century. She's right, but she's also wrong. Because we're always catching up on the guides and travel pieces we want to write and need to write, lots of photos from the past get lost or looked over because they don't go in this post or that post. And when you take literally thousands of photos every month, that means you don't always get to make favourites of the old, because you're always thinking about and looking toward the new. So, this is a new old favourite. Because it was on our last day in Puglia earlier this year, because we had just spent a few hours in Bari taking photos in the streets, because we didn't have long until our plane left, because we grabbed a pizza from the most Italian of Italian looking pizzerias which had just opened up for the evening, because we took it in the rental car and ate on the floor of airport departures. Because here's to making new old favourites. #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #girlswhotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #womenwhoexplore #shewhowanders #femmetravel #passionpassport #girlsborntotravel #lifewelltravelled #theglobewanderer #travelandlife #cntaveler #mytinyatlas #lifewelltravelled #tlpicks #starttheadventure #welivetoexplore #darlingescapes #Bari #Ilikeitaly #instagramitalia #dametraveler #theprettycities #postcardplaces #ladiesgoneglobal #finditliveit #darlingescapes #adventurethatislife ...more

Otherworldly. That is the only word we can think of to describe the Tenerife that exists above the clouds. Here, far from the ocean is a world of centuries old lava fields, Mars-like landscapes and vast blue skies. An epic place to hike, to cycle or simply to pass the time imaging what life on another planet really looks like... #VisitTenerife #TenerifeNoLimits @visit_tenerife ____ #TheConstantlyCurious #Tenerife #Tenerifelicidad #passionpassport #lifewelltravelled #theglobewanderer #cntraveler #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #letsgoeverywhere #openmyworld #spaintravel  #exploretocreate #agameoftones #travelguy #flashesofdelight #livetotraveltraveltolive #letswander #welltravelled #visitspain #theoutbound  #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #seetheworld #lonelyplanet #lifeofadventure #travelstoke #widenyourworld ...more

A difference of opinion ____ If you've travelled as a couple, then you'll know that arguments happen all the time over the silliest stuff. If you travel as a couple who blog, then you argue over even sillier stuff than normal. In Tenerife, we had some hours to spare in between all the hikes, cycles and swims, and so decided to take some photos in and around our rather fancy hotel. Andrew saw this converted white church and insisted that I should take a photo of him there from the top of some stairs; I really couldn't see it. When this happens, Andrew always know that I'll do a half-arsed job in taking the shot just to keep him quiet. Inevitably, this then results in even more bickering between us about who's eye is better, who takes the better photos, and all the requisite examples from six years together to prove the other wrong. It turns out that I absolutely love this photo now; it's probably one of my favourites from Tenerife. However, I won't tell Andrew that too much, because that makes him right (and then we'll never hear the end of it). What do you and your travel buddy argue about most? #VisitTenerife #TheConstantlyCurious #TenerifeNoLimits @visit_tenerife ____ #travelandlife #cntraveler #mytinyatlas #theglobewanderer #finditliveit #darlingescapes #forahappymoment #visualsoflife #letsgoeverywhere #openmyworld #spaintravel #exploretocreate #agameoftones #travelguy #flashesofdelight #theprettycities #livetotraveltraveltolive #letswander #welltravelled #exploremore #passionpassport #postcarplaces #postcardsfromtheworld #igerspain #theculturetrip #guardiancities #visitspain ...more

Pump those legs... Our visit to Tenerife saw us being more active and adventurous than we've been in a long time. We swam, we surfed, we hiked, we paddleboarded, we jumped of a bloody big hill with a parachute. It was a reminder that being active and outdoors is good for your soul (and let's hope good for our waistlines soon). An afternoon spent cycling above the clouds in stunning Mars-esque landscapes, around sharp turns and slow bends, was one of the most unforgettable experiences from our few days on the volcanic Spanish island. Emily used to cycle on a proper road bike like this all the time in Australia, and to have the sun on our backs as we took on hills and ate up the pristine tarmac on our way back down, felt utterly fantastic. Our guide told us that lots of Tour de France cyclists base themselves in Tenerife because of the perfect cycling conditions; we can totally understand why. #VisitTenerife #TenerifeNoLimits #TheConstantlyCurious @visit_tenerife ____ #Tenerife #Tenerifelicidad #girlswhotravel #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #womenwhoexplore #shewhowanders #femmetravel #passionpassport #girlsborntotravel #lifewelltravelled #theglobewanderer #travelandlife #cntraveler #mytinyatlas  #finditliveit #darlingescapes #forahappymoment #visualsoflife #letsgoeverywhere #openmyworld #spaintravel #cyclinglife #roadcycling #VisitSpain #CyclingGirl ...more

When you can wear your parrot shirt, you know you're in a happy place. ____ A few thoughts on Antigua, a place we never really expected to visit anytime soon, but were fortunate enough to be invited there as part of a travel conference (yes, we know, sometimes our life is bizarre). Its beaches are as divine as you'd imagine, the capital St John's is incredibly colourful and photogenic, you should definitely rent a car and explore it on your own time and dime, the local breakfast of salt fish, chop-up and fungee hits the spot, Sunday night sunsets from Shirley Heights are unmissable, its hot sauce gave Emily all the feels, clapboard houses in shades of purple, yellow and green are really common, it is really difficult to understand the local dialect when two Antiguans are chatting together, rum is king, the highest mountain is named after Barack Obama, there are colourful shacks selling fruit by the side of the road, cricket and sailing are a big deal, lots of people go there to get married, its water is picture postcard, two currencies work there (both called the dollar), and it's impossible to visit and hate it. It was our first taste of travelling on a Caribbean island, and it was delicious. ____ #LoveAntiguaBarbuda #Antigua #TheConstantlyCurious #Antiguaandbarbuda #MyTinyAtlas #PassionPassport #LifeWellTravelled #TheGlobeWanderer #Travelandlife #FindItLiveIt #VisualsOfLife #LetsGoEverywhere #IChoseToWander #TravelStoke #Caribbean #BeautifulDestinations #Flashesofdelight #WeLiveToExplore #LifeOfAdventure #Wanderfolk #ExploreToCreate #RoamThePlanet #AGameOfTones #VisitAntiguaBarbuda #TravelGuy #DarlingEscapes #ForAHappyMoment #letsgosomewhere #exploretocreate ...more

Sunset + palm trees The beaches in Antigua are all as beautiful as you would expect. We spent a great couple of days driving around the island in our rental car in search of some of the best ones - talk about giving yourself an easy task! It was the perfect way to explore Antigua. Do you often rent a car when you travel? If not, what's stopping you from doing it? - - - #LoveAntiguaBarbuda #Antigua #TheConstantlyCurious #Antiguaandbarbuda #MyTinyAtlas #PassionPassport #LifeWellTravelled #TheGlobeWanderer #Travelandlife #FindItLiveIt #VisualsOfLife #LetsGoEverywhere #IChoseToWander #TravelStoke #Caribbean #CaribbeanSea #BeautifulDestinations #Flashesofdelight #WeLiveToExplore #LifeOfAdventure #Wanderfolk #ExploreToCreate #RoamThePlanet #AGameOfTones #Beach #VisitAntiguaBarbuda #RoadTrip #TravelGuy #DarlingEscapes #ForAHappyMoment ...more

This is Justus. ____ Justus is one of the men who guided us through countries which had always felt so far away. He's the man who could cook up a vegetarian feast on any campsite. He's the man who we could always rely on to wake up before us, no matter how early, to ensure we could prepare. He's the man who supports Manchester United, speaks over 10 languages, and can charm anyone with his smile. He's the man who shared his perspectives on global politics and history. He's the man whose use of the word 'bloody' is unrivalled. He's the man who grew up as a Masai in the village and moved to the city to become an engineer. He's the man who kept things ticking like clockwork. Justus was our @gadventures CEO on our overlanding tour through Africa, and he became a friend too. He played a huge role in making our three weeks out there so fantastic. ____ We've also just posted a new article about our travels there - you can read 'An African Dream' via the link in our bio. ____ #TheConstantlyCurious #GWanderers #ad #ig_africa #loves_africa #exploretocreate #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #mytinyatlas #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #exploringtheglobe #flashesofdelight #passionpassport #africaamazing #everydayafrica #GAdventures #lifewelltravelled #ThisIsAfrica #cntraveler #momentsofmine #peopleoftheworld #liveforthestory #photographyeveryday #opentheworld #traveldeeper #finditliveit #ichosetowander #whyweadventure #portrait ...more

A view of the view of Lake Malawi ____ The guide's name was Obvious, but the route wasn't. He had said it would only take a couple of hours, but we were still walking after four. We thought we'd walk down the winding roads, but instead we took a beaten up van with a bleary-eyed driver. We thought lunch would be quick, but it took an age. This day wasn't meant to be anything special, but it was one of the best. The day our @gadventures group walked up and up and up some more to Livingstonia in Malawi, via secret waterfalls, dusty roads and a few unexpected turns along the way, was sweaty and long. But it undoubtedly ranked as one of our favourite days from the three weeks travelling this part of Africa. It deepened friendships, gave Emily a blister, let us meet a lot of locals, made us laugh, made us tired, made us thirsty for a cold beer and gave us breathtaking views over Lake Malawi - it was the sort of day we'll always remember with a smile. We would love to return to Malawi in the future. #TheConstantlyCurious #Malawi #GWanderers ____ #goexplore #neverstopexploring #exploremore #choosemountains #getoutstayout #iamatraveler #letsgosomewhere #welivetoexplore #stayandwander #theoutbound #getoutside #welltravelled #keepitwild #exploreeverything #roamtheplanet #natureaddict #loves_africa #exploretocreate #lifeofadventure #naturelover #mytinyatlas #planetdiscovery #theglobewanderer #exploringtheglobe #liveadventurously #africanamazing #everydayafrica ...more

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you've got some fabulous weekend plans ahead of you! For us, as much as we'd love to be out and about in London town, instead we'll be spending the next 36 hours hunkered down in our flat and glued to the computer with many a cup of tea (simply can't function without the tea!), editing photos of Antigua, writing about Tanzania and packing for our upcoming trip to.... Tenerife on Sunday! Besides the fact that one, we love Spain, and two, we love the sun, we've been wanting to get out to this little island for quite some time now to explore its alternative side. Think hiking, cycling, water-based activities and something Emily never quite thought she'd agree to!

It's all very subjective. We were wandering around outside our hotel in the north of Zanzibar and, despite melting from the heat, we felt like we were in photography heaven. One of our favourite ways to get a shot is to find a scene that we think will emerge, and wait. Not only does that allow us to have more than one click of the shutter, but it means we can frame it how we like and get various takes. It also means people don't really notice us two sweaty Brits hanging out with cameras. We spotted this cool hand-painted sign and already knew that, if we waited a little while, a woman in colourful Islamic dress would wander past it. And that would make a decent shot to capture a sense of this African island. But, that's the 'behind the scenes' commentary. What we really want to say is that the greatest thing about street photography is that it's all very subjective. As well as (hopefully) liking this scene, we'll all look at it a little differently. Some may see the colour, some may see the juxtaposition, some may see a generation gap, some may see a female collective, some may see a different culture, some may see nothing. Street photography allows six people to see something in six different ways, and all can be correct. That's the magic of it. ____ #GWanderers #TheConstantlyCurious ____ #StayandWander #ExploreToCreate #MyTinyAtlas #IChoseToWander #RoamThePlanet #ThisIsAfrica #AfricaAmazing #IG_Africa #LetsGoEverywhere #PhotographyEveryday #LetsGoSomewhere #TravelStoke #StreetPhotographers #GAdventures #liveforthestory #Storyofthestreet #PassionPassport #NeverStopExploring #finditliveit #natgeoyourshot #peopleoftheworld #momentsofmine #lifewelltravelled #cntraveler #welivetoexplore ...more
