8 Miles From Home. Not 80, Not 800.

But just 8 miles from our home in England, our car broke down and left us stranded. We talked a lot, and decided it was time to get a dog, move abroad, change our jobs and make movies about it… Read the whole story!

  • Standing on the highest sea cliff in Europe on a platform made of glass, then down to the beautiful harbor town of Camara de Lobos.
Madeira was ‘intensely’ beautiful, and this was just the south part of the island!

  • Walking around this little town in Madeira really gave us that holiday feeling. The sun was shining & palm trees swayed as Story's giggles filled the air.  Such a relaxing morning at the sunniest spot on the island ☀️ #pontadosol #familyvloggers #madeiraisland #visitmadeira #roadtripportugal #toddlerfashion #travelwithkids
  • Exploring the Sunniest Point on Madeira Island 🌴 ☀️ #pontadosol #familyvloggers #madeiraisland #cantskipportugal #visitmadeira #holidayoutfit #ootd #toddlerfashion #8milesfromhome #youtubefamily
  • From one contrast to the next. The south side of Madeira is like a completely different country!
We went to the Camara de Lobos and Ponta do sol, considered the sunniest part of the whole island 🌴
And it was just that.
We asked Story what she thought of the day out and she said, “it was a lovely day!” In her little British accent 😂
Madeira is now firmly one of our favourite places in the world 🌎 .

  • Oh my goodness! Madeira is mindblowingly beautiful. Not one minute passed by today when we didn’t talk about how unbelievable the views were.
We followed a locals tip and headed to Achadas De Cruz on the North western point. Only accessible via cable car. And saw some of the best scenery we’ve seen for years.
After that we went to Sao Vicente for Story to play in the most amazing park  surrounded by Goliath mountains.
The perfect setting for me to show off our new mountain necklace too! (We have to multi-task all the time 😂)
We are so impressed by this island, our camera is getting worn out 😭
So much more to see too!

  • This little girl of ours has become such a character in the last few months.
I can’t remember a day that hasn’t had at least one belly laugh caused by her antics. 😂
I also love how it really feels like we are becoming friends now too. On top of being mum and daughter. 🤗
Today we went to pick the spring onions from the land and Story was so pleased with her pickings. She insisted on a wheel barrow ride back home with the onions 🌱
We love her so much .

  • Such a fun afternoon at the lagoon today, Story's 1st time body boarding, my little 2.5 yr old surfer in the making! Was even hot enough to give the bikini an airing & rock my mum bod! .

  • #lostcamera Hi everyone. Today we met this beautiful family while out vlogging the International chocolate festival in Óbidos. Then after a full day out filming we lost our camera!
Please help us find it . It’s full of precious footage from the day. Story holding hands and making friends with this little girl while wearing a Portugal Apron in the streets of Óbidos. And dancing to pop music by the castle walls. Drinking Ginga from a chocolate cup.
I’m feeling so emotional thinking I may never get to see these beautiful memories.
Contact us at 8milesfromhome@gmail.com if you have any information on where it is. We can give a €100 finders reward to the person who successfully returns it to us.
It’s a Sony A5100 With 16-50mm standard lens, a little manfrotto tripod attached and fluffy mic mufflers on the top. Full of footage of us on it.Thank you in advance

  • It's been a weekend of treasure hunts, sunshine & baking!
Story went to bed happy, saying "I had much fun mummy" as I kissed her good night. It's moments like that, that make all other things insignificant. She makes us smile & my goal each & everyday is to make her smile too.  She will never truly know how much we love her, but some bunting on the trees helps! .
