How did your passion for travel begin?
About traveling when Graeme abandoned the British Army 2007 we put off to Australia for a working holiday visa and because then our whole lives have been evolved. In 2018 be dared to inquire”what is our wildest dream?” The answer was unanimous”to make a living traveling the planet .” We decided to YouTube our way.
Just how many days/weeks are you currently traveling in any given calendar year? Which are the types of places you want to see?
We travel 9 weeks of this year in a minimum and we travel. Places which are distinct from what we understand in Europe. However, this past summer, we have opted to explore more of Europe and are travelling to destinations in Europe.
You gave up your small company and sold all of your belongings to become travel influencers. Did you have any trepidation before you finally made the leap?
It turned out to be a frightening notion to offer up everything we had worked for up to that point. It turned out to be a long time. We put a date (1 year away) and we all literally left on 365th afternoon of placing that date. “Accepting the risk instead of losing the opportunity” is one the sayings we live by. It was now or not to follow our wildest dream. We’re getting a little old and it was the perfect time to change our career and do something that we really enjoy doing. Had we started vlogging back in 2007 if we went travelling we together would have likely been among the first YouTubers.
You dwelt in the UK before you became travel influencers. What makes the UK a enjoyable and unique travel destination? Where in case travelers go when they visit the UK?
I think when you live in a country from birth your country isn’t often explored by you or think there’s anything great about it as it’s so recognizable to you. As travelling and then returning back home to the UK, we have realized that it’s such a special country with so much history and culture. London is a must visit location. But for a English sense, visit areas such as The Cotswolds, the Lake District, Cornwall and Blackpool. In those areas you will find an actual sense of the English culture. The only down side to the UK is that the weather, so go to in the summertime.
What do you want viewers to obtain and learn from the job?
We share our travel experiences to inspire other people to make their own travel memories.
Which are the top 3 destinations you have visited?

You have done a lot of traveling because you gave your own lives in the UK up in June of 2018. What would you say is?
Traveling through Australia and getting a campervan has been our first travelling encounter that is true so has to be at the top three.

Which are the top 3 favorite perfumes?
What is your favorite restaurant in the world? What dish would you advocate?

Before going on again, we love to have a fantastic sense for each place. For example, we invested 1 month in Sri Lanka, a total of 2 years in Australia, 5 months in California, 1 month at South Korea, so forth and 2 months in India.
What is your favorite travel film?
We have discovered to become flexibe. Things happen out of your hands on the road and you have to be flexible and go with the stream.

What are without?
That is a difficult one as we have fulfilled with people all over the world.
