Welcome to our travel blog. We are Tabitha and Nic. In 2011 we 'retired' in our early 40s and set off to travel the world. We spent our first year in South America and have been lucky enough to make two trips to Antarctica.
Our blog is a record of our travels, thoughts and experiences. It is not a guide book, but we do include some tips and information, so we hope that you may find it useful if you are planning to visit somewhere we have been. Or you may just find it interesting as a bit of armchair travel.

A quick newsflash. The jungle lodge that we were staying in burned to the ground last night! We saw the fire and raised the alarm but the place was like a giant wooden treehouse and the blaze was quickly out of control. We all made it out safely, but it was all very dramatic! Have lost some stuff - mostly clothes - which is a nuisance, but just glad everyone OK. Will post more when catch up with the blog.
