About us

Hi, we are Round The World Magazine!
Two global travelers bringing you our authentic travel experiences from around the world as honestly and informative as possible. We live, breathe and work to travel and we want to inspire others to do the same. We are building our travel blog into an online travel magazine and we’re hoping to collect experiences from other travellers along the way.

Our bucket list can probably not be completed in our life time but we are sure as hell trying!

We aim to build a hub with our online magazine, full of useful information, guides, tips and stories for our like-minded visitors.

We take pictures too, take a look at our Gallery.

From corporate IT to backpacking nomads

After endless pins to ‘Bucket List’ boards and lots of research, we finally decided to leave it all behind in 2015 and have since visited 26 countries together. We took a one way flight to Iceland, ended up in Sydney, and never looked back.

The conventional life of a steady job, a mortgage, car finance and expensive clothing never appealed to us, so we took a year out to figure out if life on the road was really for us. And it was. Now we settle for travel blogging and casual work to survive, swapping suits and boots for headbands and flip-flops.

We’re lucky to have found one another (we’ve been together for 7 years) sharing the same passions and outlook on life.

Who are we?
We are Katie and Nicola, two girls from the UK, age 33 and 30. We are lovers, engaged in 2015, and vegan since 2016.
