We are so excited because our very first guest blog is finally online over at our good friend Katharina’s website A Life Beautifully Travelled . She has picked our brains about how we fit our travel around our full time jobs for a series entitled “Travel More in 2016”. The articles included feature all of our typical ‘excuses’ for not going away and possible answers to them. We are the first of the series but there are a few more interesting contributions to come, so keep an eye on her site.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our contribution:
