We’re Barry & Laura, two Worldly Nomads in search of our next adventure across the world!

If you’re dreaming of your own adventure of a lifetime, we hope to inspire and guide you on that journey! We’ve been travelling the world since 2012, and in that time we visited over 60 countries and all the continents of the world (yes even Antarctica!).

Scotland is where we call home when we aren’t travelling, where Barry works as a film maker creating epic wedding films of Scotland. Travel is one of the most important things to us, and we’re passionate about inspiring you to get out and see the world yourself. So settle in, dive into our adventure stories and get planning your own adventure!
