About Gumnuts Abroad

Hi we’re Andrew and Audrey, a 50 something Aussie couple who love exploring the world.

Welcome to our blog Gumnuts Abroad.

Us at Semuc Champey

We caught the travel bug over 30 years ago, and with a limited income have managed to save enough money to travel overseas every year.

As a young couple, we made a conscious decision to choose experiences and everlasting memories over possessions.

A choice we’re incredibly glad we made.

At the age of 19, we travelled overseas for the first time, to Fiji.

Little did we know it would be the catalyst for a lifetime obsession with travel.

Since then we’ve: travelled to over 40 countries, got engaged in Hong Kong, honeymooned in Phuket (in 1988! ), and travelled the world with our children.

In June 2017 we took a 14-month career break and travelled through Eastern Europe, Central America and Southern Asia. Visiting twenty countries along the way.

Life has grounded us for now, but we want to help you live your dreams and live life to the max.

Our goal is to share what we have learned about travel and life and to find the best products, tools, and ideas to help you make informed buying decisions.

Our hope is that you’ll find our blog useful and inspiring. And that it motivates you to get out there yourself whatever your age.
