About Me


To make it to Greece on a pathetically small budget!!


The two of us have been living in London for the past year or so and have finally scraped together enough money to travel in Europe... Unfortunately, Europe is a LOT, LOT, LOT more expensive then we thought and so we decided to give this a try!!

Between us we've been to lots and lots of places. Eliza's travelled all over South America, America, Europe and Asia and Sam's been to practically everywhere in Europe so if you need any tips or anything about these places let us know!!

We (unfortunately) aren't multilingual but Eliza speaks a pathetic amount of Spanish and German and its the same with Sam's French.

Music, Movies, and Books

Eliza's reading Shantaram at the moment which is bril but thick as hell!! Not a good travelling book...weighs as much as a Lonely Planet.

Sam's reading the sequel to the Kite Runner.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Macchu Picchu. My God!

Teach, Learn, Share

- Sainsbury's does really cheap and amazing donuts in there bakery section. If you go to London...indulge!!

- If your heading to Macchu Picchu do not believe the travel agents who go on about how spaces book up. I booked mine in Cuzco a week before and paid $200 Aust dollars. The others who booked in advance paid $800.

- On the cnr of Chapel st and High st in Melbourne, Australia there is an amazing pub called the Lucky Coq. The pizza there is $4 Aust and is incredible... go the salmon or three cheeses!!
