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 from this travel blog. Read more about us.

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.

Slow Travel

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.
