We are a young couple from Newcastle, NSW, Australia. We have just recently bought our first home and are now planning a trip to the UK and Europe. We hope to be 'travellers', rather than 'tourists' to get a real feel for the culture and true beauty of all the places we visit. We will be travelling between July and September 2013 mostly by rail but also by hire car.
Our perfect weekend consists of adventures to find the best coffee, food and shopping.
We have embarked on many road trips along the coast of Australia, from Noosa, QLD to Port Fairy, VIC and our favourite place for a weekend away is Kiama, NSW.
As for overseas travel, Samantha has travelled the North Island of New Zealand for four weeks but we don't believe we have experienced anywhere near what the world has to offer and cannot wait to take on the next adventure to the UK and Europe.
