About Us

We are Simon and Rachael and this is our travel blog.

Despite going on more holidays than anyone we know, we decided cramming our travels into annual leave from work just wasn’t satisfying our need to see the world. Follow our adventures as we leave our lives in Coventry, UK to travel the world, starting with a year in Australia.

I got my first real taste of travelling when I spent a summer working in America aged 20, and since then I have tried to see as much of the world as possible. Following four years studying economics in Nottingham and three years training to be an accountant, I have decided to leave the world of financial services behind for some proper adventures.

For me it is all about American craft beer, sneakers and Arsenal FC.

The photos you see on the blog are all taken using my Olympus EPM-1 or iPhone 6S.

I have always enjoyed using holidays to see different parts of the world. My favourite places I’ve visited so far are Croatia (which we spend a whole month hopping around), and our latest holiday to Sri Lanka. After four years studying Forensic Psychology and three years working in a prison I am now escaping in my own version of prison break to see what Australia has to offer.

The best part of travelling for me is climbing up to the top of a mountain and the satisfaction you get from the breathtaking views once you reach the summit.
