About "We"


Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I'm Selena.  I'm an American expat living in England
And I'm not your typical, adventurous travel blogger.

 
I'm over 50 (but just barely).  I hate carrying a backpack, too heavy.
I don't own a pair of hiking boots, binoculars or an Outback hat.  

You will never catch me rock-climbing, bungee-jumping or sky-diving.
I refuse to do anything that involves a harness and a waiver. 
I'm not very adventurous and I quite enjoy my comfort zone. 

But, I am a traveller traveler and a blogger.

Let me introduce you to the other half of "we" in Oh, the Places we will go!

This is Matthew, aka The Englishman


 He's the real traveler in the family with over 100 countries under his belt.
(He even owns an Outback hat.)

We met at a Texas wedding in October of 2010.
His pick up line was "So, I hear your an auditor?"
When I asked what he did, his response was "action-adventure accountant."
Between that and his dancing (have you ever seen an Englishman dance?)
 I was immediately smitten and we were married three months later.
(When you know, you know).

On our first anniversary, we packed up and moved to London and that's when I started this blog. 

I'm now exploring the world outside of my comfort zone.  I've always loved to travel, but Matthew has helped me to nurture that love into a full-blown addiction.  

Another bonus of marrying Matthew is that he came with an amazing camera.
I tease him that the Nikon D90 is the real reason I married him,
but of course (shaking head) that's not true (nodding head).
I don't let him get a hold of it much these days. 
 Since then we've also purchased a Nikon D5300.

Photographing and writing about our travels has become a passion and we love sharing that connection with you.
