So a little about us…. We currently live in the Isle of Man (Manx born & bred) and are a family of 4 (myself -Marie, my husband – Keith and 2 amazing boys – Ethan & Jasper).
Keith and I have always loved travelling and seeing the world. I have visited 34 and Keith has visited 40 countries, to date.
We always vowed to continue travelling when we returned from backpacking, but life took over. It was only when we started reading friends who embarked on a Round the World trip that we wondered about the possibility. So we have decided (with our friends inspiration) to share our passion with our children and open their eyes to the world and opportunities it has to offer. For this we intend to take a world gap tour in 2018 and see what adventures we can make.
I would describe us as a bit more than a budget-traveller. I’ve experienced the days of sleeping with cockroaches, plumbnig our own toilet, sleeping with lions outside my tent, tuk-tuk driving at it’s best, having a room with fan which barely moved a hair during 33 degree heat… yep! The list goes on…
So whilst I hated some of these things and swore I would never repeat… these are my memories and the stories I tell! But, I think I’d like a little more comfort now I’ve reached the ripe age of 40.
Therefore, this blog has been created as a means of sharing our passion for travel and show you what the world looks like through our eyes. We will share, almost, everything we do with you!
You may have a different view on what travelling is and maybe we don’t do things the same as you, but this is just our interpretation. There will be sections for tips/tricks/ideas as well as plenty of planning, stories, amazing photos and much, much more!
We hope you enjoy our journey…… and hope that it may inspire you too!
