The plot:  Sane couple exchange traditional comfortable life to set off on a different journey

Chasing the sun, living like a local and volunteering

along the way

Mad, romantic or adventurous?  Answer: A touch of all

6 years on, we’re still traveling - and still loving it

and we can say one thing for certain... it’s great fun!


We planned early retirement to do what we enjoy best - travel!

This new way of life has become an addiction - turning our belated gap year into 6 years of non-stop travel.

We’re packing more into our days and less into our luggage -

time is flying by and we can’t stop smiling.


But it didn’t start out like that...

We wondered how we might fill our time, and yes, we actually did ask... are we too young to retire - are we ready for this?


In spring 2011 we bid farewell to San Francisco setting off to follow our passion - travel. Having planned the first six months we decided to see where the journey might take us after that - uncertain just when we might return. With no advance bookings, we reckoned that we had earned the right to dawdle when we felt like it and speed up only when we were good and ready.


Along the way there have been so many adventures, so many interesting people, and so much that we didn’t expect - we’re fast filling camera chips and creating a shed-full of incredible memories. Our trip is turning out way better than expected, to say nothing of being addictive...

the 6th anniversary of our journey into the unknown beckons and there’s no talk of unpacking our luggage or shelving our passports.


If you’re thinking about a similar adventure we encourage you to flip through our website and then... go on - do it ...

you’ve earned it too!
