"Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all." Helen Keller

Time to explore

FGY began as a 0.5 tour, a plan to take six months off travelling the world before our twins, Charlie and Arabella started high school, but the more we planned, the longer our travel itinerary grew. Today, our plan is to travel for 10 months from March 2024 until January 2025. During that time, we'll be taking in parts of Asia, Europe and Africa, a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, colour and experiences.

Something for Everyone

Our Plan

For us, it was important that everyone picked one place they wanted to go. For Nick, it was walking the Camino in Spain, Arabella wanted to visit the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Charlie’s dream was to go on a safari in Kenya and I wanted to research family history in Romania. The rest has been added around these four locations.

Memories to Make

Our Logo

We decided early on to create a capsule travel wardrobe and knew that what better way to elevate it than by stamping it with our own family logo. We wanted to keep it simple in design but strong in meaning. As travellers, the compass seemed an obvious, some might say, predictable choice. But nothing represents what we want out of this trip more than this device; a powerful symbol of safety and protection, of awakening and self-discovery. A choice of roads that we're free to choose, separate but at the same time, interconnected.
