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.

Nice to see Hussain in his element, great way to learn from a very experienced chef

I wouldn’t mind a cooking lesson with him,

Oh! My Goodness, you guys plus Mick & Trudie are an absolute Hoot!!
Loved watching the Cooking School and results. I make a few Turkish Dishes taught to me by our neighbour when we lived in Dalyan. Only thing is things don’t taste just quite so good without Turkish Company and sunshine☀️
Stay Safe and keep the wonderful Videos coming, love them.

Oh the memories.... so many images stored in my heart rather than a hard drive....seeing mouse island from the rooftops of old Kalkan, so polished now from the little rough diamond of twenty years ago... özledim seni ya. Bir gün inşallah.

Really enjoyed that. You two are living life to the full and bringing joy to those of us stuck in lockdown. Hope you can sort out a new mattress.

It's a beautiful video. The chief in the video is my uncle. I hope you enjoyed the food.



What an amazing day in KALKAN !!! ... I can feel the joy of your coming cooking book ... Please do more of these local recipes videos and I wished a lot if you did that in ISTANBUL ...

Definitely going to take a cooking lesson from him when I travel to Turkey end of 2022. I love the space of the cooking school. Eggplant is one of my favorites. Don’t like beets and I know it is considered a super food for its nutritional value so would love to learn how to make that drink from it. Your newsletter was very informative today and we got to learn a bit about Chris’s brother that was interesting. I suggest that everyone signs up for your newsletter for those extra details. Very curious how much your crown cost. Here in California they run 1600. It gets us to floss morning and night because who wants to pay that but unfortunately I’ve had to have a few in my life. Great video!
