We want to inspire you to travel


Or at least to see the world! This is not just a blog for travellers. We want to inspire our readers, whether they’ve visited dozens of countries or barely make it to the next town once a year. We believe that people should have access to the world beyond their doorsteps. Hopefully our features will get you thinking differently about what you’re working on at the moment, inspire you to take a trip or at the very least, entertain.

We’re John and Andrea, a couple of thirty-something travellers who have been exploring other countries and cultures since we were 10 and 19 respectively. We grew up on opposite sides of the planet but both realized in our twenties that the places where we grew up were not for us in the long-term. John set off for Europe to work and travel, while Andrea moved around the United States for awhile, travelling abroad whenever she could. And then one day, in a tiny little town at the bottom of Crete, we met.

Since then we’ve been nomadic together. In 2010 we finally decided to start publishing stories about our adventures and also those of the interesting people we meet along the way. Our travel style: laid-back luxury. We spend pretty much all of our extra cash on travel and enjoy treating ourselves when we’re on holiday. Yet we’re unpretentious and feel just as comfortable at a casual restaurant as at one adorned with Michelin stars. As long as the quality is high, we’re there.

This blog features content in three main categories:

  • Interviews that tell other travellers’ stories. One of our favourite aspects of travel are all the interesting people we meet on the road. Even when we are only on a short trip, we make an effort to speak to people and let their projects inspire us.

We’d love to meet travellers from all over through this project and introduce other people so please follow us on Twitter, become a fan of our Facebook page, comment on our blog, send us your recommendations or link to us from your own blog.
