Greetings and salutations, and welcome to the travel blog of Shane and Robbie! We’re going to use this as a forum to share our thoughts and photos with family and friends as we travel around the world, so feel free to browse at your leisure and leave us messages along the way. We’ll try not to upset or offend too many people with our irreverent humour, though we can’t really make any promises…. We hope you enjoy our musings and that reading about our adventures helps to put a smile on your face, a spring in your step and maybe even inspires you to seek out an adventure of your very own.
For those of you who have just stumbled randomly across our blog, read on to get to know us a little better….
TRAVELLER PROFILE: SHANE
I am the boy. I carry the heavy stuff. I will do as I am told and I will love it.
TRAVELLER PROFILE: ROBBIE
I am the girl. I’m a naturopath and a nerd, which basically means I’m a hippie with a passion for good science. An odd combination, I know, but then, as most people who know me will attest, I’m not really that normal in any respect. I’m Italian, but spent most of my childhood in Kenya (East Africa), running barefoot and wild, terrorising my parents, my nanny and anyone or anything else unfortunate enough to pique my interest. To complicate things even further, I have lived in Australia for the past 20 years and now well and truly think of myself as an Aussie (though the appeal of beer still eludes me – that stuff’s revolting!). I went on my first overseas, international adventure at 6 months of age and have had a passion for travel ever since. Whether it’s weekends away somewhere locally, or trips to exotic distant lands, I just love expanding my horizons, meeting new people and experiencing the world’s sensory delights. Inquisitive and opinionated by nature, I’m looking forward to sharing all sorts of random musings with you, dear reader. Enjoy!
