love & marriage

A lot has happened since our last post. And I mean, A LOT. Six months ago, we got married! So, it’s our half-versary today 💙 I won’t gush too much about it now but will write a separate post about our wedding soon. There’s a travel ‘theme’, practical considerations, and summary of costs (especially for those of you planning your own wedding).

(Massive thank you to Perth Event Photography).

So, where did the last six months go? Yep, I’ve been thinking the same thing! (I swear, the same thing happened last year. I think there’s a pattern!) Here’s a quick recap:

  • Amazingly wonderful wedding day in Perth which doubled for my birthday and family reunion (neither of us should forget the date 😋)
  • Speedy Singapore trip to attend a work conference
  • Honeymoon to the insanely fun USA and New Zealand (Not to mention inviting some of our parents along)
  • Further exploration of the breathtaking Pilbara
  • A couple more swan-in, swan-out trips in Perth

To quote Rob, our life is pretty fricken ‘hashtagged blessed’. We’ve been travelling and spending our time with loved ones (More social, less media), so there’s scraps of paper, online journals, video and conversations to be collated and squashed together before it’ll make any sense to anybody.

We love The Blog and sharing our experiences (We thrive on travel talk!), but boy, does it take some time, energy and creative effort to produce a post. You’ll see some content real soon (and may be backdated to when it was originally written). Devastatingly, our laptop was stolen recently, which is a technological setback (I’m still in a little bit of denial, like it happened in some alternate universe)… Fortunately, we’d double, no triple, backed up our photos, so they’re all safe but we lost several posts that we were working on. If this quick post makes it online successfully, you now know it was written on a smartphone. Oooh first time for everything! Wish us luck! 🤖

So, let’s start this whole revamp again. If you don’t already follow us, check out our Instagram – it’s by far the easiest app for us to share our adventures in fun, little bursts. 

Ok everyone, there’s 26 days left of 2016. There’s trips to be planned and items to be added to the bucket list. Let’s make it count! 

Happy adventures

Why ‘Bag Most Travelled’?

Prue and Rob? Rob and Prue? You decide. Tasmania’s Overland Track, Australia

Bag Most Travelled. It’s a weird name, right? So, what does it mean?

A few months ago, when we started our blog, we thought we’d better give ourselves a name! A name that represents the travel enthusiast side of our identity. Most of you know, we don’t travel for a living (unfortunately) – we are regular people with regular jobs but might have done a bit of more travelling than a regular person. For years, we’ve been known just as Prue and Rob (both in the physical and online worlds). My name is not common, and can be hard to remember and pronounce. And let’s face it, people want others to remember their name, right?!

A Welcome Post

Hello fellow travellers, and Welcome to Bag Most Travelled!

This is literally my first post and my first time to WordPress. So, please be gentle with me! 🙂

Rob and Prue (that’s me!) spent all of 2014 travelling through 24 countries in 5 continents! That’s right, we had a year-long adventure, a career ‘break’, gap year, world trip… And since society requires us to re-enter the ‘real world’ in 2015, we thought our site could contribute to and inspire someone else’s journey! How else are we supposed to get our travel fix, if we don’t help a brother out!?
