Nice to Meet You
We're Alan & May
As unconventional travelers, our love for adventure and willingness to take risks, pushes us to seek out offbeat destinations that are untouched by mass tourism - the more remote and wild a place is, the better.
As a married couple and digital nomads, we've traveled around rural Asia and Africa for over 7 years, seeking out unusual and off-the-beaten-track experiences.
Our aim is to provide you with actionable insights on how to travel confidently - whether long-term or to remote destinations that are far off the tourist trail.
