If you love to save money where you can, and splash out on the special experiences (be they sleeping in a pod on a mountainside, a few nights in a luxury resort, or catching a night train across a country) then you are in the perfect place!

Wondering about your hosts? We are Rosie and Karl Fluskey. Come and find out more about us…

Rosie works for an airline as a check in girl, sending people off on their adventures and chatting about travel as much as she possibly can. She is sight impaired and so can miss the odd detail. She is your narrator.

Karl has a coupleĀ of jobs including working at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London, and supporting adults with learning disabilities. He is the patient and long-suffering husband, who is Rosie’s ever-excellent travel companion and photographer.

Our insatiable wanderlust sends us travelling as much as possible. Since 2006, we have visited five continents and over seventy countries. Travel is a therapeutic, confusing, interesting, frustrating, self-awakening and super fun hobby. So many of our stories start “When we were in….” because we learn so much more when we are away from home. We have gathered a wealth of experiences and we have come to the point that we may burst unless we share them with the world.

If we can inspire your travels, share in your travels or even just give you ten minutes to dream about something “other”, we will consider it a job well done.
