Welcome to Never Ending Voyage

We are Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney, a couple who sold everything we owned and left the UK in 2010 to travel the world forever.

With just carry-on luggage we’ve been slow travelling our way around the world as digital nomads, earning a living on the road by creating iPhone apps for travellers at Voyage Travel Apps and from this travel blog. Read more about us.

Slow Travel

Simon meeting a local in BurmaWe are slow travellers. We value experiences over sights—participating in ordinary daily activities and connecting with a place through its food, people and culture, delving deeper into one destination rather than rushing through many. Read our Slow Travel Manifesto for more about the slow travel philosophy and how you can apply it even on short trips.
