About Me

My name is Paul and I love traveling with my wife Nic. We have been lucky enough in my life to be able to see a lot of the world. Oh, and not to mention all those tedious business trips that actually got me to places I would never have gone to as well.

But here’s the thing, we have learned a lot along the way and have a fairly good idea in regards to what it’s all about. The trouble is, we have made all of the mistakes that a traveler can make and to be honest, I am afraid that we have forgotten more than we remember – so it is time to get a little more serious – well as serious as you can get sitting on a beach with a pina colada in your hand I guess!!

about me - us in Bali

Why this site?

I am building this site as I basically just wanted a place where I could write everything down and help some others out along the way. I want to explain what has worked for us in the past and what has not, the things we love, the things we should avoid (like hostels in San Francisco on St Patrick’s day) and how to just do it simply and enjoyably.

What will I do?

I will talk to locals, I will do some research, we will try some things out (if we have to of course) and will also do our best to find the most cost effective gear so that you can afford a cheeky little beverage whilst you are there as well. I

Of course, travel is supposed to be fun, and we plan to keep it that way. so let’s pack that suitcase!
