Just two young souls from Yorkshire looking to find adventures around the globe…
After meeting at Leeds University in England, Gaz and I, decided it was time to go for a wander, so we sold everything we owned and packed what was left into a 65l rucksack. Working and saving hard for a year prior to our leaving date on 01/11/11 meant we have been able to explore some fascinating places. For more info on how we saved check out our ‘How To Make £300 a Weekend‘ post.
Since then we haven’t looked back, of course we miss our friends and family like mad, but leaving behind the 9-5 grind, mobile phones, car tax, rent, etc is the best thing we’ve ever done. If you’re thinking of doing the same, drop us a line and let us know. We’ll try our best to give you the necessary advice :)
Update: We are currently back in Leeds, saving to go to Indonesia in September. Thoroughly enjoying six months at home with our friends and family and excited for the wedding of my best friend in August! If you hear of any UK travel blogging meet ups please let us know!
