I am Liz! I met the love of my life, Brian, in the late 80’s. We spent our first 10 years travelling around the world together, sharing a passion for travel, adventure, food and wine!

By 2004, we had become a family! We continued to travel the world and look for adventures with our little children. By 2009 our itchy feet wanted to wander further!

Self Help Books? No thanks.
