Hi! We’re Callie & Guido. We’re so glad you’ve found us.
Callie is English and Guido is Dutch and we are full-time travellers who have both backpacked in South East Asia as solo travellers. We also spent 10 months backpacking through Central and South America together in 2022/2023.
Now we are living and travelling full-time in our self-converted campervan.
How we got here
Let us tell you a little more about our story…
In March 2019 we were both travelling solo in Southeast Asia. Callie was on a 6 month trip and Guido was away for 2 months. As luck would have it, we both just happened to be in the same country, Cambodia. On the same island. And in the same hostel.
After 9 months of long-distance, Callie moved to The Netherlands. We had many travel adventures before quitting our jobs and selling our house to travel FULL-TIME, starting in November 2022. We started in Central America and headed all the way down to the south of South America.
After our 10-month adventure in Latin America, we decided to convert a van to live in, and we will roam Europe and beyond for the foreseeable future.
Where we’ve lived and travelled
Between us, we have travelled to 48 countries across 5 continents.
In the summer of 2022, we road-tripped across Europe visiting 11 countries. We have both solo-travelled in Asia and we have just returned home from our 10-month trip through Central and South America.

Where we’re going
Our plan for 2024 is to explore Europe in our van. We hope to tick off every European country and maybe even explore more of Turkey or Morocco.
Our bigger travel goals are to revisit Asia to see everything we’ve missed, travel through Africa and explore the Middle East.
Visiting all 7 continents is top of our bucket list. We only have Antarctica and Australia to go!
What we stand for
We absolutely love being outside, surrounded by nature. Whether that’s hiking, diving, cycling or just relaxing and enjoying a good view.
Our mission on our travels is to explore as many new places as possible, whilst finding the most exciting adventures along the way. Keeping in mind our love for the planet and its inhabitants, we have sustainability at the forefront of everything we do.
The more wildlife we get to spot the better.

Follow us on our Journey as we share our love for adventure through regular posts.
We know through experience travelling can be hard work and sometimes stressful. So we’ve created this blog to help take some of the pressure off of you and allow you to enjoy your trip to the fullest.
