Friends Old & New, welcome to ‘Slow Travel to Distant Places’


Our second travel blog ‘Discover the Orient’ has been renamed a few time to take account of our adventures in Australasia & the Pacific. Now that we’re off to Ecuador and Peru, which are a long way from the Orient, we have decided to rebrand the site ‘Slow Travel to Distant Places’.

We missed out on ‘gap-years’, so decided catch-up in our retirement. We’re not backpackers, we prefer a few comforts. But we’re passionately independent travellers. Ticking destinations off from cruise shore excursions, we leave to others. We prefer ‘slow travel’, with rich, subjective experiences.

We hope you’ll follow our latest adventures – coming soon.
