After putting travelling on hold for over two years because of COVID-19, my girlfriend and I are finally continuing with our adventure.

Over the next 10 months we’ll be travelling to 13 different countries around the world. (Before COVID-19 struck, we were fortunate enough to have visited South Africa, India and Sri Lanka).

Throughout this blog you can expect to read short anecdotes about our experiences alongside stunning snapshots and videos. I also hope to provide you with helpful tips and tricks for your own travels.
