How to Save Money on Flights with Skyscanner

Let’s take a look at how to use Skyscanner to find the best bargains. Skyscanner […]

Finding The Money to Travel.

How on Earth did a family of four raise the money to travel full time for two years plus ? We did it, we’ve been travelling full-time for almost 3 years now, without a regular job, so this strategy works. We’re not rich, raising the money to travel was tough, we didn’t come into money and for the […]

Family House Sitting. Yes or No?

I’m going to say what I really feel  (surprised, right?) and that is, long term family house sitting isn’t for us. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not for you, plenty of families house sit, find good house sits, and enjoy it. But for us, as long term family travellers house sitting doesn’t work.  Mostly. […]

How to Travel With Carry On Only

If you’ve been following us right from the start, you’ll know that I always said I’d never travel with carry on only. I even wrote a post about why we’d never travel light, we just had too much stuff as long term travellers. Well that was then, this is now and lately we’ve turned to […]

Getting to Jaffna Sri Lanka

Our last month in Sri Lanka was all about getting to Jaffna, this almost newly open destination was top of our wish list and after many years exploring south and central Sri Lanka, we really wanted to get to the far north of the island. We finally made it! Jaffna doesn’t disappoint in any way, […]

Why Travel With Kids

Why do we do this crazy thing, why travel with kids? More importantly, why we think you should travel with your kids, or at least give it some serious thought. By travel I don’t mean a 2 week vacation, that’s fine and better than nothing but what we’re talking about here is a complete lifestyle […]

Vegan Travel is Hard!

I tried, I really did. I want to be vegan. But vegan travel has so far turned out to be about a million times harder than I anticipated. And I’m talking vegan travel in London, one of the easiest places to be vegan on the planet ( so I thought). We live in Romania, vegan […]
