Travel stories, inspiration, news and musing

We are the dreamers, the seekers, the travellers, the adventurers, the optimists. It's nice to meet you! There are lots of us with the same DNA - we look forward to sharing the journey with you.

I'd like to say thanks...

Most of us have a lot to be thankful for this festive season - but not all of us will be in a place where we can say it in our native tongue! If that's you (half your luck!) or you wish it was and want a go to list for next time you're away, here is a list of the phrase for thank you in 50 languages, compiled by the lovely Brooke Saward at World of Wanderlust. Dankie, Brooke!
