Our Travelling Journey
Hello, it’s Nichola and Colin here, a dreamy couple of adventurers who share a desire to discover new and different places together. We’re a tattooed couple from Essex who gave it all up back in 2014 to travel the globe as a team, forever making memories.
So, what is Giving it all Up, who are we and why did we start this blog? Well, what started as a conversation over a bottle of Captain Morgan’s back in 2009, was turned into reality 5 years later when we chose to break free from the ‘norm’ and travel on one-way tickets, not constricted by time or other responsibilities. Purely and truly following our dreams.
Over time our travelling style and destination choices have adapted and changed as we have grown, learnt and aged. You can find all of these travel ideas, tips and uncensored stories on this wonderful blog of all things travel.

Travel Couple || A Little Snippet About Us
☆ Nichola ☆
Fresh out of uni in 2010, I embarked on my first travelling trip for 3 months around the usual backpacking route of South-East Asia. I would say that this trip ignited my travel love, my craving for freedom and the constant urge to wander new paths whilst creating unforgettable memories. This desire to explore has continued to grow so much so that in 2014, I quit my marketing job and sold up. I love nothing more than to be on the beach, barefoot in the sand, soothing my soul by the ocean. Oh and I have a rather sordid love affair with coffee!

I have always wanted to break away from the daily grind of the 9-5 lifestyle in England but I never had the money to follow my dreams. I watched all of my friends travel after Uni and even visited them in places for a 2 week holiday but I had a hefty debt on my shoulders which took me years to pay back. Eventually in 2013, after what felt like a lifetime, I was debt free and ready to make that move. So, in June 2014, I quit my job and sold everything I owned, ready to dip my toes into the sea of freedom and have been on the road ever since. Whilst on the road I am able to concentrate on my passion for designing and building video games, oh and of course play games!
I hope that by sharing our passion and experiences, we can pass on a little bit of wisdom to enable you to make your own happy and unforgettable memories.
