About "Our World for You"

We're Janis & Gary a British couple that love travel and relish the wonderful pleasures and unexpected experiences that it brings with it.

From the culture, the history, the food to the amazing people that you meet along the way.

Although 'Our World for You' was only born in 2016, our travels began back in 1995. We created a blog in 2010 for friends & family which we continued to maintain until 'Our World for You' was launched.

Ever since then we have managed to stretch our annual leave and visit some wonderful places.
