Greetings and welcome to our blog and a little information about us.

We are Ian & Chris of Global Gallivants. Thanks for stopping by.

We have been travelling for over 30 years around the globe, from living in Cyprus for 3 years, to running a business in Majorca in the Balearic’s. We had a spell living in the States & also venturing around Panama and it’s islands on a whim of buying beach-front land.

With this past experience we hope we can pass on our knowledge of sustainable travel on a budget, and enlighten you through our journal of wanderlust, as there’s a whole lot of world out there that’s on our bucket list unexplored.

Travel plans - Global Gallivants

Future plans and goals

Our future plans are to travel the world for 3-5 years. This will include various destinations in North and South India, Nepal, Vietnam, the Philippines and more of Thailand. We’re finalising some minor tweaks  to our plans and preparations, one of which includes selling our house. We’re hopeful of being on the road by October 2019 so watch this space.

We’re initially setting up base in Palolem south Goa India for the first 6 months. We have a few side trips planned once settled firstly North Goa, and then Southern India down to Kerala. We can also check out Hampi in the new year. It’s then on to Thailand in April 2020 once the monsoons hit India and then 6 months of chasing our dreams and the weather. We then plan on returning to our base through Nepal and Northern India in October 2020. That’s year one complete.

This blog will be our journal of these travels and will be something that will be updated regularly for family, friends and readers to follow us on this journey.

Our future plans will take us through Malaysia and Indonesia, eventually heading on our way to exploring Australia and New Zealand. It’s exciting times for both of us and we will endeavor to update with photo/video blogs along the way.

Please feel free to leave any comments you wish that will enhance our blog and aim to reply asap. We would also appreciate any likes on our social media, so don’t be shy and give us a click.

Happy Travels on your Global Gallivants : )
