Hi and welcome to the Two Tall Travellers! We are Jade and Kev and we are trying our best to travel the world with the money we make along the way.
Before hitting the road, Jade began a career as a primary school teacher and Kev trained as a sports and exercise scientist.
Both of us had travelled a little bit when growing up but we wanted to see more of the world whilst we still could. Like so many people, we knew that we had to experience something other than the 9-5 in the UK. We both have aspirations of starting a family in the future so we knew we had to get out whilst we still had time.
Our entire plan is to be able to see the world but at the end of it have enough money to be able to start a life back in the UK. So we needed to find jobs somewhere else in the world that paid enough to allow us to travel that place but to also save some money for the future.
During these years we have been lucky enough to swim with humpback whales, feed elephants, stay on a remote island, learn to dive, drink cheap beer, go white water rafting and so much more. Even better than that, we have more money now than we started with.
We have had our fair share of mishaps along the way however. We went through 2 cars on our roadtrip through Australia (which significantly depleted our savings), we travelled through Sri Lanka during the wet season so our clothes did not dry for weeks and when we hiked to see the most famous rice paddies in China there was so much fog the visibility was less than 2 meters.
There was even the time when Kev was teaching a Grade 3 class in China (7 years old) and the whole class starting chanting small dick for about a minute. For some clarity they didn't know what a dick was (they were referring to a name) but that doesn't take away from the ridiculousness of the situation.
Anyway we digress.
I hope Two Tall Travellers has the inspiration and the information you want to start your own adventure. If you want to know how we managed to leave our jobs and country behind then find out more here.

I definitely love your cats’ name.. Mine is Disco and Chiban, I used to have another cat called Metal. Metallicat. But she passed a few years ago. 🙁
Thanks 🙂 Yours are good names also! Sorry to hear about Metal, very sad when it happens.
I am currently building a page on St. Agatha’s Tower in Malta (The Red Tower). When completed, the page will contain a 3D Walk-Through Virtual Tour of the inside, 360° Panoramic tour of the outside and relevant historical content. This is part of a nationwide “Places of Interest” project that I am currently developing on behalf of Reġjun Tramuntana.
I came across the excellent video that you created on Youtube (https://youtu.be/wgH0798SQn0). I really like it and with your permission, I wish to add it to the page.
Please let me know if this is acceptable to you, and if so, what accreditation you would want me to add to the page.
PS. I love what you do – totally jealous 🙂
Hi! I’m really glad you liked it! I replied to this request via the email you provided in the comment but I’m not sure it worked. Please send us an email via [email protected] to discuss this.
Just watched your six boutique hotels in Chiang Mai video. Loved it, liked and subbed!
Wanted to ask what would you guys recommend among the six for a family of four? Two kids 9 and 11.
Hollering at y’all from Mauritius.
Hey! Glad you enjoyed it.
Kev here and I have to say Ping Nakara. They have a really nice family room that connects with two singles in one room and a double in the other. Which I think is perfect for that age group and family size. If you want a little less fanciness and more of a fun vibe then My Chiang Mai is another great option as they also have a great family room that connects.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!
Planning my Sri Lanka trip and came across this… your info and advice is brilliant. Thank you so much
