We love to travel and explore foreign landscapes, discover new and interesting animals and plants, swim with exotic sea creatures and meet people who are different from us. Writing about our adventures and taking photographs is one of the ways we keep in touch with our family and growing circle of friends and fans.

There are lots of travel blogs that show you places you can go. We help you put yourself in the picture by sharing all the lessons we have learned from almost continuous travel. We reveal our secrets for affordable ways to travel more, stay longer and have experiences most tourists miss.
