Have a look at their favorite destinations around the world where Babe, Where is My Passport are going next and discover!
How did your passion for traveling get started?
When Graeme abandoned the British Army 2007 we put off to Australia for a working holiday visa and because then our entire lives have been evolved about traveling. In 2018 be dared to ask ourselves”what’s our wildest dream?” The response was unanimous”to earn a living travel the world.” So we chose to YouTube our strategy across the world.
How many days/weeks are you travel in any given calendar year? Which are the types?
We probably travel 9 months of this year at a minimum and we journey. Places that are different from what we know in Europe. But, this summer, we have opted to explore more of Europe and are travelling to destinations in Europe.
You sold all of your belongings to become travel influencers and gave up your business. Did you have some trepidation before you finally made the jump?
It was a frightening idea to provide up. It was a very long time coming. We put a date (1 year off ) and we all literally left on 365th afternoon of placing that date. “Accepting the danger instead of losing the opportunity” is one the sayings we live by. It was to trace our wildest dream. We are getting a bit old and this was the perfect time to change our livelihood and do something that we all really enjoy doing. Had we only begun vlogging back in 2007 when we went travelling we together would have probably been among the first YouTubers to do so.
You dwelt in the UK, before you became traveling influencers. What makes the UK a enjoyable and exceptional travel destination? Whenever they visit the United Kingdom, where should travelers proceed?
I think when you reside in a country from arrival you don’t explore your country or think there is anything great about it since it’s so familiar to you. But since then and travelling returning back home to the UK, we have realized that it is such a unique country with so much history and culture. Evidently, London is a must visit location. For a real English sense, see areas like Cornwall, The Cotswolds, the Lake District and Blackpool. In these areas you will get a true sense of the culture that is proper. The only down side to the UK is the weather, so preferably go to in the summertime.
What do you want viewers learn and to get from your job?
We share our travel experiences to inspire other people to make their journey memories.
We want to inspire everybody realize it is never too late and to follow your own dreams. Make having fun that your priority. Additionally, it doesn’t matter where You’re, even if it’s on your own country, go out explore and experience the world. Make memories with a myriad of folks from various walks of life.
Give us a’Top 5′ record for a few of your top 3 destinations. Just like a list of sorts or a mini-guide. It can be anything in your favorite resort, best spot to have lunch, best sightseeing, etc..
California has been our destination and a place where we’d like to settle down long term. It’s great weather throughout the year, a vibe that is nutritious is and you can go skiing and be surfing in Santa Cruz the next moment.
How many nations have you visited so far?
India is among our destinations. It was a crazy adventure and we had a really much fun being there. We experienced a culture shock which provides you a different outlook about life.
You have done lots of traveling because you gave your lives in the UK up in June of 2018. What will you say is?
So has to be at the top three, travelling through Australia and getting a campervan has been our true travelling encounter. The liberty of finding your own course, parking up during the night to sleep and undergoing that particular moment when you awaken in a new location (now watching it for the first time with daylight) and to enjoy your breakfast right there, nothing much better.
Which are your top 3 favorite perfumes?
What’s your favorite restaurant in the world? What dish do you recommend there?
We feel as if we have been to so many but really it is only 35. That have spent a lot of time. Before moving on again, we like to have a sense for each place. By way of instance, we spent 1 month at Sri Lanka, a minimum of two years in Australia, 5 months at California, 1 month at South Korea, two months in India and so forth.
What’s your favorite traveling movie?
We’ve learned to become flexibe. Things happen out of your hands on the road and go with the flow and you have to be flexible. Flights we more reserved or be postponed, the weather will not necessarily be on your side, you get very worried about it and will get over billed at least once. But none of the thing as you’ll make memories and experience things before leaving that you can not expect.
What’s your international airport?
Which city had the most friendly people?
Who’s your favorite traveling companion?
What’s the perfect way to kill time when traveling?
We have a”key” restaurant at Cyprus, Mousikos at Sotira which can be off the beaten track. Locals go there to consume. Nearly all men and women in the village do not even talk English. You have to order the Meze. It’s made up of 21 little dishes of all kinds of Mediterranean amazing meals (the home made halloumi is really to die for!) . It’s such an encounter that is authentic. You’ll float beyond the celebrities and vines incredible.
What’s the most exotic place you have been taken by your livelihood?
Marigold Hotel has to be one of our favorites.
What’s your piece of traveling suggestions for someone who wants to, or is about to, embark on a life of traveling?
Changi Airport in Singapore is fairly mad so much great to get a long layover and to do there. We found all kinds of things to do and see including a butterfly garden and theatre and made a video about all of the terminals.
What are without?
That is a tough one as we have met people that are incredibly kind around the world. But Lopburi, Thailand (aka fighter city ) stands out the most because we received aid from absolute strangers that had been going on their day and went out of their way to assist us (providing us lifts, and helping us reach our second destination etc).
What’s your ultimate dream destination?
Each other ?
What’s your favorite traveling quotation?
We do have the credit card game which nearly ends up in divorce as we are aggressive with each other although for us it’s editing.
Where are you headed next?
The Gili Island were very nice but we recently travelled to The Philippines also it has so many amazing beaches and islands. The water is blue just like Gatorade.
Budget, budget and budget. It’s simple to want to do each tour, every action and the entire season of travel is now down to 6 months traveling before you know it. We log, every night before going to bed. This is you keep tabs on where your budget enables you organize and is going.
Passport (lol), camera, frisbee and drone
