About us

Hi, we are Helen & Jon, a bit about us.

In 2018 we took the momentous decision (for us anyway) to take ourselves Off Around the World. And this, #offaroundtheworld, is the home of our story and some of the thousands of photographs we took en route, why we went and how.

Plus a whole bunch of advice and useful information.

Our aim is to help you take the momentous step and head off on your own adventure of a lifetime.
