Where We've Lived
We move house more than most.

Our chosen nomadic lifestyle means we change countries about every 3 months.

There's a whole world out there to see, and we intend on seeing it. Slow-traveller style.
Perth, Australia
Where it all Began

Home sweet home that we had to leave behind in order to find the rest of the world.

Even as the second most isolated capital city in the world, Western Australia's metropolis still attracts many European backpackers every summer.

Koh Phangan, Thailand
First Stop: Paradise

Vegan heaven on a tropical island that is as beautiful as it is relaxing.

Organic fruit, picturesque sunsets every night, and some of the best weather imaginable all add up to make this southern Thai island truly unforgettable.

Chiang Mai, Thailand
Digital Nomad HQ

Northern Thailand is home to the peaceful, irresistibly vegan-friendly city that is most likely the World Capital of Digital Nomads.

Affordable and instantly liveable, with some of the friendliest, most welcoming locals I've ever met. And the best food.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria
8000 Years of History

Our first European autumn was spent with much enjoyment in one of the oldest cities on Earth, with very acceptable pre-winter weather.

The size and tempo of this 340,000 person city is surprisingly reminiscent of home. But less than half the price.

Novi Sad, Serbia
The Serbian Plovdiv

We are locked down in the 2021 European Capital of Culture for our first proper winter with some of the most hospitable people we've met.

The cost of living, well planned city layout and lack of tourist attractions make Novi Sad most suitable as an almost-perfect home-base as opposed to just a short holiday destination.

Where We've Travelled
Some places we just don't want to stay in for too long.
Some places we can't afford to.

Which ever way it is, the following are the locations we've only passed through, staying anywhere from just a weekend for up to 10 days.
Bangkok, Thailand
Big. Busy. Bangkok.

The gateway to South East Asia is, in our opinion, best left closed after you enter.

Even if it is home to my favourite vegan restaurant in the world, after a week in Thailand's capital almost anywhere else starts looking very appealing.

Pai, Thailand
A+ Mountain Getaway

Nestled among the mountains of Thailands North-West is a backpackers dream, that any nature lover will easily fall in love with - even if it's only for a weekend.

Grab a scooter and explore some world-class waterfalls and canyons by day, then party or relax the night away with the rest of the care-free travellers that populate this 2,500 person town.

Vang Vieng, Laos
Riverside Relaxation

Another standard issue backpacker stop that, despite having not one vegan restaurant - and only one vegetarian - I would easily call one of Laos' finest destinations.

Our Visa Run of Glory from Chiang Mai to this small, dirt-road laden town flew by in just three short days. Or was it four?

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The City of Freedom

Beautifully intoxicating and eternally seductive: The 'Dam draws you in then makes you never want to leave.

Even with it's understandably high prices, Holland's infamously progressive capital city is easily the best I've ever visited.

Kraków, Poland
East Meets West

The liveliness of this historically-scarred Central European city is almost kept secret by the relaxing public garden that encircles it.

Inside, the very walkable Old Town is filled with some of the friendliest Europeans we've met to date, and some awesome Jazz music. We'll be back for more Kraków, I guarantee you.

Budapest, Hungary
Roman Baths & Romantic Bridges

And falafels. Good falafels. But not much else.

Though expansive and bustling, with nightlife any way you want it, the Hungarian capital still left us hungry for more.
