ABOUT

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 see the world. 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’ve been able to explore some fascinating places and learn more about the world, and ourselves, than we could have ever imagined. For more information about how we saved enough money, check our ‘How To Make £300 a Weekend‘ post.

Since then we’ve visited the USA, the Caribbean, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Vietnam, Cambodia, United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. We’ve both become Advanced Divers and fallen in love with life by the sea; surfing, kite-surfing, snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing and of course, scuba diving. We’re currently soaking up the sun and perfecting our surfing skills in Bali. Drop us a tweet if you have any tips @etjourney or have any questions about the places we’ve visited. We always travel slowly, often spending time living and working in each country, so we usually have at least a tip or two to offer!

If you’d like to know more about how we fund our travels check out our post ‘Running A Business Abroad – How We Got Here’

Saying goodbye to the 9-5 grind is the best thing we’ve ever done. If you’re thinking of doing the same, get in touch! We’ll try our best to give you the necessary advice :)

      Thanks for your kind words. We’ll definitely be keeping up to date with your posts, I love hitch-hiking! I hitch-hiked through England and Holland to get from Leeds to Amsterdam once, and loved every second!

    I seriously dream about doing this! This is amazing! Starting to save money so I can do this! I’m a little nervous about doing it by myself!

      Hey Caroline, you definitely should. I can imagine taking the plunge on your own is scary but when you travel you’re hardly ever alone. If you intend on staying in hostels you’ll make loads of friends and meet people you can continue on your travels with. There’s also a huge network of travel bloggers who often ask if anyone happens to be nearby, so don’t be afraid to get in touch and arrange to meet up. It’s always good to know there’s someone there to offer advice when you first arrive. Where are you thinking of traveling to?

        I don’t really have a plan actually. I just want to see as much as I can. I actually have a week off of work in April and I want to go somewhere in Europe but I’m not sure where. Any suggestions? I’ll be traveling alone and I’ve been to Italy this past October. :)

    Very nice! I’m in the process of doing the something. I’m done with the 8 to 12 hour days!
