How We Roll (About us)

Thanks for popping by. We are Andy & Jane Bridges, and we love travel, food, music and other good things in life. We started this blog to put some of what we enjoy out on the interweb. Originating from the UK, we moved to the Bundaberg region of Queensland in 2010. As we live somewhere that lots of travellers aspire to visit, in 2015 we thought we’d start recording our wanderings on our doorstep and further afield. Whilst that sounded like a great plan, it would be fair to say that work took over and keeping it up to date was a bit hit and miss. However, in 2018 we’ve decided to bite the bullet, sell the house, resign from our careers and take the gap years we never had. We’ve written a bit more about this in our post; ‘You may ask yourselves, how did we get here‘.

This blog will therefore be a record of our travels in Australia and overseas, which we anticipate will be for two years or so starting from July 2018. After that – who knows.

We’re not aiming to write travel guides for the places we visit, there’s already plenty of those type of resources out there. We will include some information on how we’ve planned for our travels and what it costs us. Feel free to comment with any questions you have. In general, however, our blog is really a collection of stories of the journeys and adventures we’ve undertaken. Our opinions on places and experiences are included, but not as formal reviews.

Start with The Where, The What, The When and The How on the left hand menu (or at the bottom if you’re reading this on your phone) to find your way around. Apologies in advance for the Dad humour that creeps in every now and again.

We hope you find this website entertaining and maybe even a little bit useful. It’s not aimed at a particular type of traveller, just those who prefer accumulating experiences instead of stuff.
