Come away with us

Hello & welcome to our travel blog. This a collection of our blog posts sent during our various trips. We're a gay couple based in the UK with a passion for getting away from it all and swinging the days away from hammocks on faraway shores. We hope you find our blog useful and interesting! Happy travelling - Jimmy & Neil :-)
