Our Travel Essentials

Ever since the moment we met in Paris five years ago, Simon and I travelled quite a lot.

World Tour, Long Trip: Why Hit the Road?

It is set, we are leaving!

For me, the idea of touring the world was… really just an idea: “it would be great but I never will…”. A dream and all the barriers that go with it – no time, no money, too many fears, you can always find an excuse.

Long-Term Travel: Define Your Itinerary and Budget

Organising a long journey implies significant involvement and takes time. It has been about a year and a half since we started to think seriously about this trip and saving up for it. Now, it’s time to buckle down and start planning.
