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.

We track our travel expenses with our iOS app Trail Wallet. We designed it especially for travellers so you can set a daily or trip budget, enter expenses in multiple currencies, and see which categories are eating up your cash on the pie chart. Join over 250,000 other travellers and download it here (it’s free for up to 25 items).
Food is our favourite way to connect with a new culture. We are always on the search for the best vegetarian food around the world and love to take cooking classes and food tours.

We 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.
