Hi, I’m Chef, I’ve been travelling the world with my wife and boys since 2012. It’s a great gig being a nomadic dad. Occasionally I still work as a Chef in London’s finest hotels, but we’ve developed an online income and lower cost of living that allows us to travel more or less full-time. So where have we been?
This is a list but it doesn’t tell the full story, many of these countries we’ve visited 2, 3, 6 times, often spending months at a time. But just to give you an idea of what you’ll find on our websites, these are the destinations we’ve covered so far.
Australia I’m an Aussie, we lived in Queensland for years.
Malaysia We bought a 1 way ticket to Kuala Lumpur and made it up from there.
Thailand Bangkok feels like home. 6 weeks on Ko Phangan and much more exploring.
Laos 6 glorious weeks,
Cambodia A full month, including Angkor Wat, Battambang and Kampot.
Sri Lanka Our favourite, a full month, three times.
India 1 month with the kids, but before they came along, 3 months.

And we’ve got no plans to stop! Stick around and watch this list grow.
How do we manage to finance our lifestyle, well, let my wife tell that story for now. I’ll tell my version of the secrets in good time.
All the best,
