Welcome To The Travel a New Road Blog


You want to travel more.

But you don’t want to leave your old life behind to do it. You happen to like your home, your friends and your job. Yet you still want to get out there and have some adventures! It’s seems like a catch-22.

But it doesn’t have to be. Our website is here to show you how to have the best of both worlds.

It is possible to fit more travel into your life, without having to change everything. When reading the internet, it can feel like becoming a backpacker, sleeping in cheap hostels and living off your savings is the only way to travel the world. But we’re here to tell you that it isn’t. Fitting travel into your current lifestyle isn’t only achievable, we think it’s a more enjoyable way to travel too.

If you’re like us, you’d much rather stay in a nice hotel for the weekend and splash out on some awesome experiences. You love action-packed trips that get the most out of a destination, and returning to own bed to recover afterwards!

We plan our trips in great detail and offer the information on this blog, so that you can go there too. So let’s see the world together, one adventure at a time! 🙂

Who Are We?


We’re Gemma and Andy, a UK couple in our late twenties who’ve chosen to make travel an essential part of our life.

After quitting our jobs to travel the world last year, we soon realised we’d made a huge mistake! Being a digital nomad just wasn’t for us– living and working on the road is hard, and your attention is always split between the two. We were burnt out from so much sightseeing. We also missed having our own space, friends and some structure to our lives.

After 6 months of a location independent lifestyle, we returned to the UK to work as freelancers from a home base instead. We now try to visit a new destination every month to see more of our incredible world, and fit this around our jobs.

We still love travelling, and in fact probably love it even more! Travelling the world is inspiring, motivating and freeing. It’s also challenging and exhausting. That’s why we find it more enjoyable over shorter periods of time. We plan lots of amazing experiences to highlight the best of a destination and learn more about it. Then we return to our home to digest it and share everything with our friends and readers.

After the realisation that travel and a ‘normal life’ aren’t mutually exclusive, we’re determined to use our knowledge to inspire and help other couples to fit more travel into their life!
