Take a look at their best destinations and find out where they’re off to next!
How did your passion for traveling begin?
Our passion for traveling started with no other initially and continued to grow once we started dating. As a young boy and teenager, Scott was frequently whisked off on adventures with his brothers and parents; this is where his love of skiing, snorkeling, and also adrenaline-fuelled passions came out of. As for me personally; many camping trips were involved by my childhood but it wasn’t until I was 23 when I was struck with the traveling bug. Keen on using my qualification that was Italian from college, I stumbled on a yearlong trip to see eight cities in seven times. I made it a goal to see three or more new places abroad every year and all of the UK in between, upon arriving. 18 months later, Scott and I met with each other until he was brought together for the journey and it was not long.
What does travel mean to youpersonally? Is it that you feel it’s vital?
Travel brings excitement, experience, and enthusiasm into our lives. It put into action and gives us something to dream about. It teaches us new things about ourselves, each other and cultures around the world. Plus it shows us that there’s beauty wherever you look and whatever you are attracted to; make it ocean blues, black whites or forest greens.
You two run a travel blog called Wanderers of earth. Can you please inform us? How can it come about and what makes it distinctive?
We had been travelling together for around two decades when Scott suggested the notion of starting a travel blog. This was in May 2016. Initially, I laughed off the idea as I didn’t know anything and so I chose to plan our forthcoming multi-city visit to Los Angeles, Honolulu, Hilo and San Francisco, which was proposed for September of the year. But his idea stuck with us throughout that trip and we all found others should see also and that all when we got back we wanted to do was telling folks all. A month after, Wanderers of the Planet was born. Since that time, our blog has developed with us now and we concentrate on traveling that couples could do around the 9-5 like day trips, weekend getaways and 1-2 week holidays. We’ve found that digital nomads who do not possess exactly the same problems and concerns as those of us with fulltime jobs that were office-based run the larger travel sites. We wanted to create a space to inspire others and reveal that the planet can be seen by them; they just might need to do it one destination at one time and they’re ready to.
You two manage to travel even with 9-to-5 occupations. What advice could you give to folks around who feel that their jobs prevent them from travel?
If traveling is actually something which you need to do, then your 9-5 will not stand whatsoever. Yes, in order to find off time, you might need to do some advance preparation that shouldn’t be an issue , although approved than just hop on a plane tomorrow. Where would you want to go? Start thinking about it now and put it! Do not forget that your 9-5 is your gateway you still need cash to travel? So your job is what’s going to enable you to get it done. And don’t forget about everything on your home nation — weekend trip jaunt or a day trip into the countryside seems as traveling as far as a trip abroad. You might be surprised by what’s awaiting you in another town!
How would you journey in any given year? What kinds of places would you want to see?
We invest 95 percent of our annual leave days and UK bank holidays on traveling, which equates to approximately 30 times each year. And then we probably spend another two weekends each month. So we are looking at around 75-80 days of travelling annually. We are not too good at sitting so we like to see places that have a balance of adventure, comfort and character. You’ll often find us flying across the united kingdom looking for new places and enjoy the countryside perspectives as they’re great for long weekends, but we also adore European city breaks. To give you a flavour for our kind of journey, a few of our trips have been to Vienna, Belgium, Iceland, Finland, Morocco, Hawaii, Bali, Singapore and Dubai.
What do you want viewers learn and to attain from your job?
We are doing this to discuss our own personal experiences with our subscribers that they can hopefully learn from. But with this comes the need to be honest in what we say and do. For us, this means keeping our photos realistic of what it’s really like to observe a place (warts and all) and describing the pros and cons at which applicable also. We hope that by being a normal everyday couple, readers can find us approachable and feel like they could ask us whatever they desire.
