Hi, we’re Amy and Andrew. In 2013, we quit our jobs and left London to travel the world indefinitely.

Since then, we’ve explored Asia, Europe, Oceana and the Americas, working along the way to fund our journey. Our adventures include teaching English in Vietnam, living as digital nomads in Thailand and housesitting around the world. This site is our guide to life as perpetual nomads, where we share our travel stories, trip costs and expert tips for working and living abroad. We hope you find our site useful and inspiring, whether you’re already out on the road or planning a big adventure, get started here.
