A British boy, George and an American girl, Hanna. We met while backpacking in Thailand, and together we spent several months exploring our way through South East Asia. We recently left our 9 to 5 jobs in search of adventure. Together, we live for travel and exploring new unforeseen areas. In 2019, left on our world trip, visiting over 15 countries and making life-long memories.
As a free-spirited travel couple on the run, we are in search of new opportunities and experiences. Using our Instagram and blog as a way to connect with fellow travel junkies, we hope to inspire other travellers to see more of the world.
OUR PERSONAL STORIES
Hello! I’m Hanna, a 25-year-old travel enthusiast from San Diego, California. I had the pleasure of growing up in sunny California and it will forever be my favourite place in the world!
I attended The University of Southern California (fight on!), majoring in Communication & Journalism with a minor in Business Administration. I studied there for 3.5 years and graduated early so that I could take a three month gap between school and work to travel. Little did I know I was going to catch the travel bug big time!
In January of 2017, I packed up my backpack and boarded my first solo flight to Australia. From there I spent an amazing 3 months traveling around Australia, Indonesia, and South East Asia. I made some incredible life long friends, grew up a ALOT, and ultimately found the love of my life in Thailand.
I grew up in a large family of travel lovers. My parents were both flight attendants back in the day and my grandma LOVES to travel. She has been to more countries than I can count and her home is filled with the most diverse eclectic collection of memories from her travels. So you could say I grew up always surrounded by world travellers.
I have been fortunate to visit many different places, but I always feel the most at home near the ocean. I love the beach and I feel super lucky to have grown up next to it my whole life!
I am George, a 27-year-old from England! I grew up in Slough. I am a huge travel junkie and have been on the road for more than 2 years now.
Prior to travelling, I went to the University at Southampton and studied Criminology and Psychology. After my studies, like most Brits, I packed up my bags and did the ultimate South East Asia tour. I traveled both with friends from home, and solo for a period of 17 months. You could say I really fell in love with the way of life abroad.
After my first few months, I realised I needed to make some money in order to keep funding my travels. That is when I decided to move to Perth, Australia and work. I bartended for a few months to save up enough money to eventually hit the road again and booked my first flight over to the Philippines.
By chance, I happened to be at the same hostel as Hanna in March of 2017. We met, hit it off, and were inseparable ever sense. Not many people I had met in my 15 months of travel could change my plans, but this one did!
Similar to Hanna, my family are avid travellers. My parents grew up bringing me to Bali on holiday, it’s even where I learned to swim! Watching them travel and having the chance to visit more exotic places in my childhood really inspired me to want to travel more on my own.
That is us, George and Hanna the American and the brit. Follow us on our adventure around the world.
