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

Over the next 10 months we’ll be travelling to 15 different countries around the world and you can follow us every step of the way.

Throughout this blog, you can read about our experiences alongside stunning snapshots and videos. I also aim to write helpful guides in the hope of inspiring you to travel!
