Hello! We are Amy & Will!
Welcome to our little blog!|
When we first met, we were both travellings taking in the world one step at a time.
Once we got together, we had a goal: to go somewhere we've never been before at least once a year.
This is a blog about our passion for the world, the desire to explore different places, cultures and to make new friends.
Words are Amy's, Photographs mainly Will's.
Read more about us here. We hope that you'll be inspired by our memories to follow our footprints to travel, because there is no better way to understand the world, than by exploring it. Happy travels!

I want to travel but I have no holidays! I have a full time job and can’t seem to find time to travel! Hey, no problems! Who says having a full time job should stop you from travelling? I have a full time job (for now) too! And amazes many people how I manage to […]
It never occurred to me to travel otherwise. In Europe, where the option for rail travel is good and (mostly) reliable, it is my first choice of transport when I am roaming around the continent. However, it wasn’t until I was helping a friend about their European itinerary did I realise not many people know […]
When I received a pre-release copy of Tragic Shores in the post, my immediate reaction was: Ugh, another travelogue about all these sad places around the world. “In this stunning memoir, Thomas travels with his wife and daughter to less traditional family holiday spots…” the press release had stated. I was skeptic to say the […]
Lovers of Harry Potter and Pokemon Go can vouch for this: there is nothing more exciting than being able to find fantastic beasts or discover mythical creatures in our surroundings, even if it’s imagined. One of those things about travel is that sometimes, you can let you are imagination be carried away with you, and […]
Some days, words just flow. I can produce a thousand word copy in an hour, and will have plenty of time to review and edit it before my deadline. Today was one of those days that I’ve lost the words, the sentences and pretty much spent three hours formulating a paragraph that I end up […]
