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

This is a place where we share our passion for travel, life and a bit of history too.

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.

Our Travel Plans


The South East of the UK

Discovering more of our corner of the country. From the beaches to the countryside, more castles and history.

A South of France road trip

Specifically, we’re returning to Provence and the Côte d’Azur, but also taking in a little bit of Annecy, Arbois and finishing off with a little Champagne in Ay.

Returning to Germany

It wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t return to Germany for the Christmas markets. This time we stay north and start with Bremen, Berlin, Hamburg before returning to our favourite, Cologne.



We’re returning to Zimbabwe after 20 years for a family wedding. It’ll also give us time to explore more of this country now we’re all digital.
