Janis & Gary welcome you to our little bit of the Internet.

This is a place where we share our passion for Travel & Life.

After 25 years working in corporate land, we decided to focus on enjoying that big old world out there, and sharing those adventures with you.

Janis is the planner, organiser & worrier. Gary is the photographer, driver & geek.
