Welcome to our travel blog!
After almost ten years of rat-racing around in London, we have decided to ditch, well.... everything, to go explore the world. Having suitably begun our trip in the cradle of the world - Africa, our 15 month journey will see us hiking mountains in Peru, jungle trekking in Bolivia, wine tasting in Argentina, desert roaming in Chile, and beach bumming in Brazil.... after that, it's on to Bangkok, the gateway to South East Asia which we will explore for five months before heading to our final destination, Australia.
