We have the whole world to explore. Where would you go?

Here’s where we’ve been so far:

First off, a few places in Europe – Valencia, Prague, Zagreb and Athens. They are not far to fly to from the UK and we felt cost of living was reasonable and the sun will hopefully shine.

After that we went east to visit great-grandparents in Hong Kong and explore South East Asia. We returned to Japan to show Roobs where we used to live in Fukuoka. We volunteered with a friends’ charity in Thailand and stayed in Malaysia for a month too.

After that, it’s Bali over the summer and then Brisbane, Australia for two months. We haven’t planned beyond that but I’d love to visit an old friend in New Zealand. Then we need to plot a way back to Europe!

It is important to us to have a bit of flexibility about destinations as we want to be able to head where we feel is right for us and not have to stick to dates set months and months in advance.

Greece is a lovely place. There are loads of yummy foods, and I did loads of classes, like: dancing and cooking, and I helped a refugee camp.
