What`s this blog about?
We are a couple hailing from Germany and England, meaning between us we are efficient and polite, but unable to talk about football. We work in international development, and have been working on social justice and human rights issues abroad since 2011. We have lived and worked in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Cambodia, Colombia, Ghana, Nepal, Peru, and Timor-Leste, and travelled around Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, and Africa. Through this travel blog we want to share stories of our unusual travel adventures and life as international development workers.

  1. I stumbled upon your site just today. Your blog looks great. Seems like you have had great success with your travel blog. I am just a month old and clueless about how I can succeed. Keep up with the good work!

    Hi Chris and Tammy, I love your website and your unusual travel stories and your interest in humanitarian issues. If you ever find yourself in the hills of South India, near a small town called Gudalur (about 50 km from Ooty, or Udhagamangalam, as it is known now, you might want to check out some really radical changes that an organization started over 25 years ago by my wife’s cousin and her husband has been able to achieve by rethinking the whole “development” model as it applies to communities which were hunter gatherers in the forests in the old days but who in the modern world seem to have such an uphill task to survive and prosper. This kind of an issue is of course common to all indigenous people throughout the world, be they in Canada or the Amazon jungle or in small pockets in remote corners of India. Here is a link that you might find illuminating, written by Stan, of the aforementioned couple :

      Thank you for your kind words Aloke! This looks like a very interesting project. If we ever make it to India we will be sure to check it out. 🙂

  3. there are not a lot of bloggers that I know work in the humanitarian field, nice to know one though ^_^

  4. it’s awesome to read about how passionate you both are about your work… thanks for writing about travel AND human rights. i think a lot of travel blogs miss that aspect – the humanity, the people, the culture and history of a place. i look forward to reading more about your experiences!

      Thank you so much Soapie. I am glad you find that aspect of our blog interesting. I think it is important to write about the `real stuff` too, because it gives you a more honest overview of a country.

  5. A lot of travel bloggers just blog about the place and a bit of their experience

    But in your case, it is inspiring to know that your travels are more than that, that you have a mission to better the lives of the people through your humanitarian works.

    Truly inspiring. 🙂

  6. Dear Tammy & Chris,

We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in Cambodia, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
