Our mission is to share our travels with our family and freinds. Together we are Paul, Leanne and our super son Thomas. Where ever we travel you will be along with us, whenever we see something spectacular you will share it with us and most important of all whenever we run out of money in a foreign country you will bail us out with a money transfer ;-)

Hope you enjoy
