So we’re Laura and Christina. Two best friends living and working in Glasgow. We’re just regular girls who have a big dream – to visit every single country in the world.
We met in September 2014 during teacher training. Christina had decided to leave Canada to study in Scotland and Laura had just ended a horrible relationship. Our individual circumstances meant we had both applied to postgraduate halls late. As a result ended up in the same flat, sharing a bedroom wall. We bonded over wine and bike rides and soon discovered we both had the same, some what slightly weird sense of humour. It didn’t take long for us to become the best of friends and the rest is history.
In June 2016 we used our summer to backpack Thailand. In those 4 short weeks we fell in love with the country and the culture. While we sat in departures of Bangkok airport we priced up one way tickets to go back. At the start off this year after weeks of deliberating we booked them with the plan to quit our jobs in June 2017 and travel full time.
So this is our story.
A story of two girls taking on the entire world.
