Erin sold everything she owned and left the UK in 2010 to travel the world with her partner, Simon. They mix living in one place for a few months with faster periods of travel and have travelled to more than 30 countries with just their carry-on backpacks while running a popular travel blog, Never Ending Voyage, and creating iPhone apps like Trail Wallet.

Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences

Learning to sail a yacht in the Langkawi islands in Malaysia. We loved it so much that we plan to buy a yacht one day and sail around the South Pacific.

Biggest Surprise along the Way

How little money we need to live an amazing lifestyle. We aren’t very money motivated and have prioritised freedom over income. We don’t earn a huge amount, but we are able to live very comfortably, choose our schedule, and explore the world.
