about us



Hi, we’re Luke and Roxy, a couple of explorers from Ireland and Canada. Thanks for visiting our blog! We met while backpacking in 2015 and have been on the road together ever since. Our goal when travelling is to get off the beaten path and find the most awesome adventures. Ripping round on scooters, cliff jumping, hiking, finding amazing beaches and other epic locations is our jam. We are also passionate about aerial photography and started documenting our travels on Instagram which eventually evolved into the blog. As well as creating free travel guides we want to showcase just how unreal each place we visit is through our photos.

As full time backpackers we know a thing or two about stretching a budget. For us it’s essential to make every dollar count so we are used to staying in budget accommodation, eating local street food and always taking local transport. It may not always be the easiest way to travel but we absolutely love it. We hope you enjoy our blogs and we are always keen to hear from our fellow travellers, so don’t be afraid to get in touch. Happy adventuring!
