  • Description

    Hello, We are Lewis and Nicole :)

    Lewis is 27 years old and Nicole is 25 years old. We have been together over 7 years; we met during our sixth form studies when we both worked at fast food chain KFC 9 years ago.

    We began our round the world trip on 3 January 2019. After years of talking about travelling we finally decided to bite the bullet, we requested career breaks with our companies and rented our home out in Manchester, UK.

    Our first stop was India where we spent 6 weeks, exploring the north and south. Since then we have also visited Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Indonesia, Qatar and Madrid (we took a huge detour to watch Liverpool in the Champions League final).

    Lewis is a hard working, passionate Chartered Accountant with 7 years experience. Nicole is a dedicated, ambitious Dispensing Optician with 6 years experience.

    Although our jobs are city based we love the outdoors, which is one of many reasons we have chosen to travel. We are a very sociable couple and love meeting new people; we want to experience new cultures and ways of life. At the time of writing this we have been travelling for 5 months and love it. We have done and seen some incredible things, however up to now our trip has mainly consisted of visiting major tourist attractions, we wanted more from this trip than just the ‘usual’. We would love to be able to live a new experience, such as living with a local and helping them with daily activities, a special project or whatever they require.

    Learning any new skill would be amazing but we would particularly like to develop our skill set within
    - Construction/building
    - Teaching children basic English and life skills
    - Sustainable tourism

    We look forward to meeting new people, hopefully that's you!
