We’re Marianne and Chris, a married couple from the UK. After some life changing events we decided that life was just too short. We sold all our belongings, bought an old Campervan & rented our house to travel full time. The aim is to attempt to visit every country in the world in either our van or with a backpack. We started videoing our travels for our family and then decided it was a wonderful way to document and share our adventures.

Our latest adventure started in January 2020 when we left the UK in an attempt to drive our van all the way around the world. Let the adventures continue.

I love watching your videos. I am from the UK and live in Kadikoy working as an English teacher. I absolutely love it here and wouldn't be anywhere else. Turkey is amazing and the people are gracious. My new home. I think you have both presented your adventure through Turkey so beautifully. Stay safe.😊

Kadıköy is my fav part of İstanbul, especially the fish restaurants. There are, for me anyway, many cities that are over hyped. Istanbul is definitely NOT one of them. It really is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.

Istanbul is such an amazing place, but especialy the asian side is the best part of istanbul. The place in the asia side is near the sea in Kalamis Marina.

Hi guys, i've been watching your vlogs for quiet a while now, Im happy you guys came to a halt in turkey, the best country to be stuck in, Turkish people will look after you, i was there in antalya a month ago and also early march this year, will be back after new years, hopefully February.
You guys have missed a few nice places to visit, dalaman mountains are one off them, the other is olu deniz and all the small islands like the butter fly island, a must visit place in the summer.
Keep safe and hope all goes well for you both :)
