Globe-Trotters

Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Guten Tag, Aloha, so many ways to say 'Hi'!


Welcome to Globe-Trotters, we're Rebecca & Rhys and we love to travel! We met in 2013, married in 2014 and during those years, and to present day, we've taken every opportunity possible to see the world. Although we both had a travel passion before we met, Globe-Trotters is here because we want to share with you 'our journey', just the 2 of us. We also aim to bring you tips, fashion and gadget info and anything else 'travel' we feel might be of use.


We hope you love the site, but if you have any questions, if there's anything you'd like us to feature or you simply want to get in touch, please don't hesitate to do so because we'd love to hear from you.


Happy Travelling, Love Rebecca & Rhys xx
