I’m Sonja, and I’ve gone from solo female traveller to travelling as a couple to family travel with a baby, all in the time since this website began! Luckily this gives me a well-rounded perspective on different types of travel and an ability to reach multiple audiences. I like to dig deeper than a surface exploration of a place, and my own experience and the contacts I’ve made living all across the globe help me to do that!
My background includes an upbringing in small-town New Zealand, then living in five other countries while studying and working, and travelling through many others before “settling” in Scotland. For now!
I’ve studied Law, I’ve taught English, I’ve worked packing ice cream in a cold store and I’ve given education advice to university students. Now through this website and working with various companies and brands, I’ve made travel blogging and content creation my full-time job.
I’m interested in outdoor adventures and cultural museum visits, in eating locally and hunting down the best coffee and cake or sweet treats in every place I go. Give me something new to try and I will!
Phil comes from small-town England, growing up in Kent. After studying Film Production at University he moved into managing bars and pubs. It was while doing this he moved to London enjoying the bright lights and the big city!
Eventually though the travel bug bit and he backpacked around Europe before deciding to give Scotland a go. Luckily for me because that’s where we met, under the pretence of talking about a trip to Asia! Once he returned he began his career in digital marketing, working in Social Media and Digital Content as a Social Media and Community Manager.
Baby B came along at the end of 2018, changing us from “couple travellers” to a little family of three. His first major travel adventure was from Scotland to New Zealand at 11 weeks old, and we’ve continued travelling with him ever since!
