• New to Going the Whole Hogg?


We’re Kim and Del Hogg, a Scottish couple with half a lifetime of travel behind us, and plenty more still to come. Want to know more about us, our travels and life before this blog?

We’ve noticed a big change in the way we research, plan and go about our travels in recent times. Gone are the days when we would pore over every detail in our Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, pretty much our only source of reference. These days we turn to social media and fellow travel blogs to find the latest information, pick up tips and ideas, and get insights into a destination.

And that’s exactly why we started Going the Whole Hogg. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience built up over the past 15 years of travel, with many more adventures still to come, and we want to share it all with you.

Want to explore by destination?

We’ve created a page where you can search by country or region and explore every relevant article, video and photography gallery we’ve ever published.

The Blog

Here you can browse through all of our posts, or head to a particular section that interests you. We write all sorts, from in depth destination guides to tales from the road.

Looking for some visual inspiration?

Photography and travel have always gone hand-in-hand for us, so you can expect plenty of visual accompaniments to our written work. Head over to the Photography page to check out our galleries, photo essays and photography related posts.

Want to see a destination really come to life?

While one of us is shooting photos, the other is usually shooting film. We love creating videos about the places we go, things we do and the food we eat. Film has the ability to really bring a destination or experience to life and we think our videos complement our photography and written work perfectly.
