The World in a Weekend Author

Hi, we are Rachel and Tim from The World in a Weekend. We treat every trip as a once in a lifetime experience, maximising our time by squeezing in as many sites and activities as we can. Our ultimate goal is to visit every country in the world (one weekend at a time). We seek to inspire, expose different experiences, and hope others follow in our footsteps and travel out of their normal comfort zones. We love to motivate and get people to try new things and fully immerse themselves in different destinations. Our passion is to discover secret wonders and try new things, and we are committed to report our honest findings to our loyal readers.
