It's All About Serendipity

contented-traveller-logoWe are Paula and Gordon, experienced and independent travelers. We have been organizing our own bespoke travels for a long time.

As destination marketers, we share our experiences, stories and tips with you so that you can travel your way and get exactly what you want and deserve. After all you, You’ve Earned It.

Where Would you Like to Go?

We have been to many places and done many unique things and if we haven’t, we have asked other travel writers to share their ideas and homes with you.

What would you like to See, Do, and Taste?

A huge part of travel is based on learning about different cultures, through food, experiences and activities. We share a lot of usual and unusual ideas.

How Can 'You' Make it Happen?

We are experienced travelers and will encourage you with practical ideas and advice on getting exactly what you want, and not what some else wants for you.
