Steve and Emma's Travel Tales

About steve_and_emma



Hi, I think most people who are looking at this site know who we are, but just in case you have stumbled upon our website by chance we better tell you a bit about ourselves. I (Steve) am from a small town near Manchester and Emma is from a small village in County Durham in Northern England. So as you can imagine, there was not a whole lot to keep us there!

I got the travel bug travelling around Europe and the USA in the early 90s, but it really got a hold of me when I spent 5 months backpacking around the Indian subcontinent in 97/98. At the same time Emma had got fed up with England and left to teach in Sri Lanka. We met during that trip and the rest is history. We both teach and this is mainly for the long holidays and the opportunity to travel. We have explored South East Asia extensively, having lived in Sri Lanka , Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia since the late nineties.

We quit our jobs in Malaysia in 2012 and headed off on a 'gap year', with the first 6 months in South America followed by trekking in Nepal. We thought it was time to explore a new continent so we landed in Africa in May 2013 and we enjoyed a couple of years in Kampala, Uganda . We then decided to set up a guest house business in South Africa which we ran for 3 years before going back to teaching in Ethiopia. We have just moved to Romania and are looking forward to exploring Europe, a continent that we have neglected so far.

Hope you enjoy the travel tales and pictures, but better still, get out there and see it for yourself.
