After meeting at Leeds University in 2007, we’ve been best friends and travel-obsessed ever since. We always wanted to see the world, but just as important to us, was seeing it together. After 5 years, we’d saved up enough money and quit our jobs in Fashion (Sarah) and Marketing (Charlotte), struck down by now-or-never-fever! We left the UK in January 2013, aged 23, on a one way flight to Bangkok and have been all over the place since then.
We rarely make plans and tend to book flights spontaneously, generally deciding upon our next destination when we feel as though we’re ready to move on (it definitely keeps things interesting!). We’re TEFL qualified and want to teach where possible, even if some quick tuition is in exchange for a night’s accommodation. We’re doing everything on a budget; the more conscientious we are with money, the longer we can keep going – seeing as much of the world as possible is our ultimate aim. Our blog is the tale of our highs and lows, our discoveries and opinions, whilst hopefully providing a few tips and entertainment for fellow backpackers and intrigued readers back home. So far there’s no looking back.
Thanks for visiting,
Charlotte & Sarah x
