How did your passion for traveling begin?
Our love for traveling started with no other at first and continued to grow once we began dating. As a young boy and teenager, Scott was whisked off on experiences with brothers and his parents; that is where his love of skiing, skiing, and also adrenaline-fuelled passions came from. As for me personally; my childhood involved camping trips but it wasn’t until I was 23 when I was hit with the traveling bug. Keen on with my qualification from college, I stumbled on a yearlong trip to see eight cities in seven days. I left it a goal to see more of the UK and three or more new areas abroad annually in between, upon returning. Scott and I met each other until he was brought along for the journey and it was not long.
What does travel mean to youpersonally? Why do you believe it is critical?
Travel brings enthusiasm, experience, and enthusiasm into our own lives. It then put into action and gives us something to dream about. It teaches us new things about each other, ourselves and cultures across the globe. And it shows us that there’s beauty and whatever you’re drawn to; be it ocean blues, sandy whites or woods greens.
Both run a travel blog called Wanderers of earth. Could you please tell us about it? How did it come about and what makes it unique?
We had been travelling together for approximately two years after Scott suggested the idea of starting a travel blog. This was in May 2016. Originally , I laughed off the idea as I did not understand anything and so I chose to plan our forthcoming multi-city visit to Los Angeles, Honolulu, Hilo and San Francisco, that was planned for September of the year. However, his idea stuck with us and we all discovered others must visit and that all when we got back we needed to do was tell people all about the heaven landscapes we saw in Hawaii. A month after, Wanderers of the Planet was born. Ever since that time, our blog has evolved with us now and we now focus on traveling that couples can do about the day trips, weekend getaways and 1-2 week holidays. We’ve discovered that nomads who don’t have exactly the same issues and concerns as those of us with fulltime jobs that were office-based often run the travel blogs. We wanted to create a space show them that they can observe the entire world and to inspire others like us; they just might have to do it one destination at a time and they’re ready to.
Both manage to journey with 9-to-5 projects. What advice could you give to people out there who feel that their jobs prevent them from travel?
If traveling is really something which you wish to do, then your own 9-5 won’t stand whatsoever. Yes, you might have to do some advance planning in order to find off time that should not be an problem , although accepted than just hop on a plane tomorrow. Where would you want to go? Start thinking about it now and put it in action! Bear in mind that your own 9-5 is the gateway you still need cash to travel, right? So that your job is what’s going to enable you to get it done. And lastly, don’t forget about everything in your own home nation — a fast day trip or weekend trip jaunt to the countryside seems as traveling as much as a trip overseas. You might even be surprised by what is waiting for you in another city along!
Just how many days/weeks would you journey in any particular calendar year? What kinds of places would you like to visit?
We spend 95% of our annual leave days and UK bank holidays on traveling, that equates to around 30 days each year. And we likely spend another two weekends each month. So we are looking at about 75-80 days of travelling per year. We are not so good at sitting so we love to visit areas that have a balance of adventure, comfort and character. You find us travelling around the united kingdom looking for new areas to hike and take in the countryside perspectives but we adore city breaks since they’re ideal for extended weekends. To give you a flavour to our type of journey, some of our trips have been to Vienna Belgium, Iceland, Finland, Morocco, Hawaii, Bali, Singapore and Dubai.
What do you want audiences learn and to profit from the work?
We are doing so to share our own personal adventures with our readers that they can hopefully learn from. However, with this comes the need to be honest in what we say and do. For us, this means maintaining our photos realistic of what it is really like to find a location (warts and all) and describing the pros and cons where relevant too. We expect that by being a normal everyday couple, readers feel like they can ask us whatever they desire and can find us approachable.
What are the top 3 destinations you have visited?
Given just how much we loved and were amazed by our visit to Brussels in Belgium, here is our’top 5′ record to hopefully convince you to have a trip there as well!
Give us your’Top 5′ record for one of the top 3 destinations. Like a mini-guide or some listing of sorts. It can be anything from your favourite hotel, the ideal place to have lunch, the ideal holiday season, etc..
To tell the truth, we have not been keeping count. However, between us, it has got to be well over fifty by now.
That’s easy: Italian, Singaporean and British.
How many countries have you visited up to now?
Archipelago in the heart of London never ceases to be the most odd restaurant we’ve ever eaten at. It won’t be to everyones’ taste as meals on the menu include things like crocodile, zebra, kangaroo and even chocolate-covered locusts for dessert. We urge you to obtain the two or three most unusual dishes available on the menu and then gratify… you will don’t know when you might find another chance to eat something really special.
What are the top 3 favourite perfumes?
Into the Wild is a tear-jerker however is still full of beautiful visuals and scenery and is a strong reminder to get out there and watch that the planet but always be prepared when doing so.
What’s your favourite restaurant in the world? What dish would you recommend there?
Schiphol in Amsterdam.
It had row upon row of giant sunflowers, when we visited in 2017. This was a wonderful way to direct us and functioned with the Netherlands too.
What’s your favourite traveling movie?
Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii.
They’re chilled, down to the earth, welcoming, honest — and make friends!
What’s your global airport?
Besides every other? Our Rough Collie, Kai. He joins us on most — if not all — of those UK trips and days out.
Which city had the most friendly people?
Typically, it requires us about 2-3 hours to compose a brand new blog post from scratch (not like publishing period ). This eats in the hours spent on a plane, it is fun — and gives us one post after we come home, to compose!
Who’s your favourite traveling companion?
Since we both work fulltime, we generally choose to utilize local manufacturers and tourism planks; not precisely what you’d call exotic but it has given us a chance to visit areas in the UK that we might not have done differently. Wealso spent viewing the very best of the Gower Peninsula and ‘ve recently partnered with Go to Swansea Bay. It was the first area in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we hadn’t ever thought to visit. So I am glad we got the chance it is simply stunning.
What’s the ideal method to kill time when traveling?
Do not expect everything to be perfect. There’ll be mishaps along the road — anything to freak weather and lost bags out of flights. But as you can travel with a open mind and positivity and recall to laugh on your own misadventures you’ll have a fantastic time no matter what.
What’s the most exotic location your career has taken you?
Our mobiles are our lifelines and navigators (thanks Google Maps!) , as well as what we carry nearly all our photos with. You’ll also find us clinging to some book journal for maintaining a splitter plus blogging notes, so we can still’Netflix and chill’ while travelling.
What’s your very best piece?
We both have a longing to travel around Japan for a Few Months to Visit Areas like Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Uji, Both the Snow Monkey Park and Mount Fuji.
What are 4 things you could never travel without?
“Home isn’t where you are from, it is where you go. The planet travels. Others find it into a person.” — Beau Taplin (a Australian writer and songwriter)
What’s your ultimate dream destination?
Besides a few more weekend jaunts across the united kingdom, we are currently planning my 30th for following year, and this is likely going to be island-hopping at Croatia with day excursions to Krka National Park, Plitvice Lakes and the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro.
