Welcome to our little corner of the internet!

One wintry evening in South London, we decided to act upon our passion for travel and book a one-way flight to Australia. Nine months later, we embarked on a new adventure with limited budgets, loose plans and countless ideas.

Our blog includes honest reviews and practical advice to help you maximise your time and money. We hope that our writing and photographs will inspire you to make your own journey across land and sea! 


A three-week volunteering trip to Ghana in my first year of university sparked my love of travel. I relaxed on the Cape Coast, lived with locals in Kumasi and saw wild elephants at Mole National Park... it was incredible. After finishing my studies and deferring my start date at my new job by one year, I took the opportunity to travel the world and create Across Land & Sea. 


We met whilst studying at Loughborough University and have enjoyed travelling together ever since. After graduation we moved to London, where we went to the theatre at least once a week and started ballroom dancing! After living and working in the capital for two years, we jumped at the chance to take a year off to travel.


I am inspired to travel by my Grandma, who has a tendency to  visit far-flung places -  Komodo, Georgia, and even North Korea! Before university, I completed a ski season in France and travelled to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Given my passion for travel, joining Rachel on her year out was a no-brainer. 

We have lots planned for 2018 and beyond.
