We Quit our Jobs & Sold Everything to Travel the World

We Quit our Jobs & Sold Everything to Travel the World

      We Quit our Jobs & Sold Everything to Travel the World We made the crazy decision to quit our jobs, sell everything we own and TREAD the Globe for evermore. After losing some friends of similar ages and Marianne donating a kidney to her best friend Kate – we realised that life is precious and must not be taken for granted. There must be more to life than working the 9-5 job for the next 20 years….

The Fabulous Ugly Duckling Pub & Restaurant, Longlane Telford

The Fabulous Ugly Duckling Pub & Restaurant, Longlane Telford

Just north of Telford, in Shropshire, can be found the high end Gastro pub ‘The Ugly Duckling’.  It’s unusual to find such a high end pub, selling modern British food, at such reasonable prices.   Opened in August 2016 The Ugly Duckling has quickly grown in popularity, due to the superb food, inviting and relaxing décor.

Booking through Air B&B we found a very comfortable flat, booked for four nights in the Gothic Quarter, as it seemed a good central location within walking distance to…

Our first time under water – try a discovery dive

I have always loved snorkelling – it gives you that glimpse into another world below from the familiar comfort of the surface.  So, whenever I planned a trip away to warmer tropical climates, I would always make sure that part of the holiday had a few days next to the beach with the best coral reef we could find.  Marianne and I have never really been the kind to sit and sunbathe on a beach for hours, we both get itchy feet…
