MEET IAN & NICKY

We’re an English couple who’ve swapped our corporate life for a voyage of discovery and this world travel blog is a permanent record of what we see, think and do. We hope it also provides information, entertainment and inspiration for other “mature” travellers, too. So, if you’ve got a few minutes to spare, why not pour yourself a glass of something suitably chilled and take a look around!
