We are Colin & Dawn, a couple who had a dream to travel, who wondered if one day it might come true.
So we gave up our jobs in August 2013, sold our belongings & jumped on the ferry from Portsmouth the following month…
… and here we are, still travelling!
The day we left the UK 🙋
Inspired by other couples, we carefully researched travel tips, packing lists, itineraries & everything we could find.
Armed with just two 40L carry on rucksacks, we first set off on a 7 month tour of Central America.
Next came a brief tour of France & Spain, until we got itchy feet & set off for a 6 month tour of Asia in December 2014.
Still feeling the travel bug after our return from Asia, we decided to finish off 2015 with a mammoth tour of Europe. This included: UK, Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France & Spain.
2016 was an opportunity to settle down a bit in Spain, exploring the culture, making new friends & learning a new language.
Early 2017 saw a trip to Budapest & Vienna and in the summer a 3 month trip around Indonesia.
2018 included trips within Spain, the UK & Morocco.
2019 brought a January trip to Kerala for a month. Summer brought an amazing trip to the Spanish Pyrenees stunning scenery & cool temperatures. We also spent August pet-sitting in the UK which was a great opportunity.
The next trip is in September when Dawn will be going back to… Kerala
Whilst we are travelling, we love to volunteer & have been involved in many exciting projects: Assisting & teaching English in Panama, Guatemala, Laos & Vietnam and other charity projects in Panama, Mexico & Spain.
