A British boy, George and an American girl, Hanna. We met while backpacking in Thailand, and together we spent several months exploring our way through South East Asia. We recently left our 9 to 5 jobs in search of adventure. Together, we live for travel and exploring new unforeseen areas. In 2019, we are embarking on our world trip, where we plan to spend upwards of 2 years on the road.
We packed up our lives into our backpacks and are planning to hit over 40+ countries around the world. As a free spirited travel couple on the run, we are in search of new opportunities and experiences. Using our Instagram and blog as a way to connect with fellow travel junkies, we hope to inspire other travellers see more of the world.
Hello! I’m Hanna, a 24 year old travel enthusiast from San Diego, California. I had the pleasure of growing up in sunny California and it will forever be my favourite place in the world!
I attended The University of Southern California (fight on!), majoring in Communication & Journalism with a minor in Business Administration. I studied there for 3.5 years and graduated early so that I could take a three month gap between school and work to travel. Little did I know I was going to catch the travel bug big time!
In January of 2017, I packed up my backpack and boarded my first solo flight to Australia. From there I spent an amazing 3 months traveling around Australia, Indonesia, and South East Asia. I made some incredible life long friends, grew up a ALOT, and ultimately found the love of my life in Thailand.
I grew up in a large family of travel lovers. My parents were both flight attendants back in the day and my grandma LOVES to travel. She has been to more countries than I can count and her home is filled with the most diverse eclectic collection of memories from her travels. So you could say I grew up always surrounded by world travellers.
I have been fortunate to visit many different places, but I always feel the most at home near the ocean. I love the beach and I feel super lucky to have grown up next to it my whole life!

I am George, a 26 year old from England! I grew up in Slough. I am a huge travel junkie and have been on the road for more than 2 years now.
Prior to travelling, I went to the University at Southampton and studied Criminology and Psychology. After my studies, like most Brits, I packed up my bags and did the ultimate South East Asia tour. I traveled both with friends from home, and solo for a period of 17 months. You could say I really fell in love with the way of life abroad.
After my first few months, I realised I needed to make some money in order to keep funding my travels. That is when I decided to move to Perth, Australia and work. I bartended for a few month to save up enough money to eventually hit the road again and booked my first flight over to the Philippines.
By chance, I happened to be at the same hostel as Hanna in March of 2017. We met, hit it off, and were inseparable ever sense. Not many people I had met in my 15 months of travel could change my plans, but this one did!
Similar to Hanna, my family are avid travellers. My parents grew up bringing me to Bali on holiday, its even where I learned to swim! Watching them travel and having the chance to visit more exotic places in my childhood really inspired me to want to travel more on my own.

One thing that we find rather unique about us is our love story! We are two people from very different parts of the world, who happened to cross paths whilst travelling. Some may say this is why we love travel so much! You never know who you will meet and how they could change your life forever!
We met whilst both backpacking solo in Thailand at our hostel in Chiang Mai. From there, we were pretty much inseparable. We continued to travel together for 3 months, to Cambodia and back to Thailand before we both had to return home for our jobs. Hanna had a corporate job lined up in Los Angeles and I was due home after nearly a year and a half of travel.
This time apart for us was difficult. Within the first month, Hanna had already booked a ticket out to see me in London. Despite living worlds apart, we somehow made it work. We made a promise to try to see each other every two months. Either I would fly out to California, or Hanna to England.
After 2 years of long distance life and many FaceTimes, we decided enough was enough. In an attempt to continue doing what we loved most, whilst also finding a way to be together full time, we decided to pack up our things and leave home. Together, we saved up enough money to travel for 2 years together, thus here we are now!
We travel not only because we love it, but because it is a temporary solution for us to be together! We love new adventures and we love being together! We hope our love story inspires you to get out and see the world!
