Head to Ayutthaya Thailand & Boycott Bangkok

We are always on the look out for ways to travel more meaningfully. We like culture, sustainable tourism and genuine encounters with local people. We love to book and use local guides; those people who can give us inside knowledge into what it’s like to really live and work there. If you want to explore Ayutthaya…

Thailand

How to introduce your kids to Backpacking

Since we started travelling, I have taken our three kids backpacking on three occasions, SOLO, and I plan to do more in the near future. So where have we been? Our first time was a two week trip to southern Spain. It went remarkably well so I embarked on a three month tour of South-East Asia…

2017! Cor Blimey what a year!

We decided to have a recap on what we’d done last year and….well, what a year 2017 was for us!! Note: I actually wrote this in December 2017 but forgot to hit publish. In 2016 we had spent six months being location independent in France and two months in England, so 2017 was our first…

Cambodia

Cambodia really left a big impression on us and its a country we cannot wait to go back to & explore more of. Before you go it is wise to do some research on its history as it has a turbulent and bloody past which killed approximately three million people. This history is still raw…

The moment I mentioned cooking classes to the kids, they were hugely excited.
