Our Travel Philosophy For Worldwide Travel

We make a conscious choice to travel Off the Tourist Treadmill. This means travelling like a local and avoiding 5-star hotels.  Although we enjoy this from time to time, we make a conscious choice to travel a very different way.

We prefer to stay in less expensive guest houses and small independent hotels where European food and guests are not the norm.  As foodies, we both love that we can eat authentic cuisine wherever we are in the world.

We also love the freedom of independent travel. We travel with backpacks and can easily move from one place to another. This flexibility lets us travel and experience more in different countries around the world. It also gives us time to interact with the locals which is the most memorable part of our travels.

Not only do we pay less, but we experience more by having the time to stay where we want for however long we want.  We can easily respond to tips from other travellers and change our destinations.  We are not the only ones travelling like this.

When travelling in India, we stayed in a simple £20 a night hotel. We met two charming 70-year-old women who were backpacking around Asia without a fixed plan.  We spent a great night with them and exchanged tips on our travels in India.  This is only one example, but it happens all the time whenever we travel Off the Tourist Treadmill.
