Meet Ray & Sue
G’day! We’re Ray and Sue and our journey together started with a dash of wanderlust, a sprinkle of adventure and a whole lot of love.
Our paths first crossed in Bali where we quickly discovered our shared passion for wildlife and exploring the world’s wonders. As our romance blossomed, Ray, originally from New Zealand, took a leap across the Tasman Sea to join me in sunny Australia. There, we decided to take a leap of faith and set off on an adventure to Africa, where we eloped with the breathtaking roar of Victoria Falls as our backdrop before enjoying an extraordinary honeymoon among gentle giants at a nearby elephant camp, the magnificent gorillas in Rwanda and the Middle East.
With our love of travel and wildlife we knew they were a key part of our future together, and it’s been a whirlwind adventure ever since! Together, we’ve journeyed through a tapestry of wildlife, history and culture all over the world, from the untamed wilderness of our planet, diving into the magical world beneath the waves to historic wonders and ancient empires.
We’re not just partners in life; we’re explorers, photographers, wildlife enthusiasts and advocates for our furry, feathered and reptile friends. Our travels aren’t just about wildlife and finding the most jaw-dropping places; it’s also about savouring the flavours of different cultures, one delicious vegetarian dish at a time. Whether it’s a spicy campfire stew on safari in Africa, pancakes smothered with fresh ripe strawberries in Bali or sipping local fruit wine as we watch the sun go down over the Daintree, we love to explore new cultures with our tastebuds as well as our eyes and ears.
But we’re not just wanderers; we’re responsible travellers who believe in leaving a positive impact wherever we roam. We proudly support local, sustainable tourism operators who share our passion for protecting the environment and wildlife. It’s not just about ticking off a bucket list; it’s about giving back and supporting communities. Many of the operators we recommend are true champions, employing locals, contributing a portion of their profits to local schools, medical clinics and conservation projects. It’s a win-win for travellers and the locals alike!
Our travel blogs are more than just stories; they’re an invitation to embark on your unique adventures and dream holidays. They’re here to inspire you, motivate you and help you plan the trip of a lifetime. So, join us on this wild ride and let’s uncover the world’s magic together.
Cheers to wanderlust, wildlife and a world full of wonder!
