Let the adventure begin…

From March 24th 2012, one of our life long ambitions will become a reality. Travelling has always been something we both felt was an important part of our life experience. Not to run away, not for the need to ‘find ourselves’, but to take the opportunity to see as much of the world as we can whilst experiencing something new everyday. Comfort zones officially out of the window.

The last few years have been one of sacrifice for both us. We’ve left jobs, homes, sold possessions and sacrificed social lives to make this dream possible. Not forgetting countless carboots (bleurgh!). It was never an overnight decision, but one which took months of planning and consideration to become a reality.

Over to you Albert.

Our trip takes us to some of the most amazing places the world has to offer (At least we think so). We’ve reduced our material possessions to just one bag each, a MacBook and a couple of sketch pads. Other than the obvious life lessons that are to come out of this experience, it would be a bonus if we were able to better our creative careers as a result of it.

This website gives us the perfect platform to share all of this with those who want to read about it. Our aim isn’t to create an in depth travellers guide, but to account some of our experiences to share with loved ones and anyone else who stumbles upon it. From the highs to the lows, to the funny moments too, there should be lots to keep you all entertained.

We hope you all enjoy this blog, designed by to’m and coded by Matt (cheers dude). We can’t wait to evolve it overtime, providing the MacBook doesn’t get nicked or sun stroke! If you would like to find out more or say hello to us, then please message us and we will happily get back to you.

We’ll let Steve finish up.
