Well, we gave them a try and in the end, we decided to choose something else: Travelling!

In October 2016 we decided to give up everything that made us “comfortable” and to take a shot at something new.

After working our notice periods, selling our excess belongings, letting our home and saying goodbye to our family and friends we finally set off on our journey.

Our first destination: Thailand – January 2017.


We’re Gemma and Simon, a couple originally from Middlesbrough, UK.

In January 2017 we left the UK. We quit our jobs and bid a sad farewell to everyone we know and love and headed off into the distance to see what the world had to offer!

Since meeting in Simon’s pub back in 2006, we have always had a passion for travelling the world – taking every opportunity to do just that.

Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to visit numerous countries and have lots of stories to tell from each and every one of them. Our love of travel has been a constant in our relationship and now we’re in a position to do it full time we are giving it a go.

We’ve created this website to help share our adventures, keeping friends and family back home up to date with what we’re up to and hopefully provide others with useful information to help with their travels as well.

We have no idea where we’ll be in a month, a year or even five years from now – but we can’t wait to see what happens and share our stories with you all!
