About Us

In July 2014 we both sold all our things and left our lives in Manchester behind to begin a round-the-world adventure with nothing but the bags on our backs.


Antony, Rio de Janeiro 2014


After graduating from University I played online poker for a living for several years and spent much of my spare income on travelling. I took little more than my laptop with me when I left home for good and managed to make enough money to keep on going. I try not to take life to seriously, I like to party and do stupid shit that my parents wouldn’t approve of.



Rick, Switzerland 2010


I quit my job as a Auto-Electrician in Manchester, sold all my processions and moved to Germany for my experience living in a foreign country. Two months in and my first dip into life on the road convinced me to keep on going and start my round the world trip with Antony. Having my savings of just £10,000, I expected the adventure to last around one year. But we just kept on going by finding working and volunteering opportunities along the way.

You can follow our journey here, while we wander blindly around the world with no destination in mind. We’ll write openly and honestly about our journey, from the beautiful places we visited to the crazy people we met. Read all about the up and downs, the wild adventures and the stupid things that we did along the way. It was an interesting ride.

Care to join us?

    I am planning a trip to Thailand, and I stumbled across your very forthright and entertaining account of Phuket. I have never been there, and after reading your cathartic description I can promise you I never will. Your experience does not surprise me. In the 1980’s, in Pattaya Beach, I encountered the same beauty polluted by a churning cesspool of humans struggling for economic survival. You missed the bars with the elevated boxing ring dead center, in which pre-teen boys engaged in knock-down Muay Thai fights. I know there is a “real” Thailand out there, unmolested by gold-chain wearing, chain-smoking Russians. Which Phuket has become, says everyone.
    Anyway, awesome account. Love your writing. Good luck in you poker! You need a lucky hat!


  2. Hi guys!

    So, this is really random but I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I really like your style! I recently got nominated for a Liebster Award – it’s basically an award that bloggers give to other bloggers to encourage them to keep blogging so I’d really like to nominate you.

    It might sound like a kinda 90’s chain mail throw back, but basically I’ve written some questions on my latest blog and if you guys have time, feel free to answer them and then nominate any blogs that you enjoy reading 🙂
