We are the Beers.
(No, no: it’s our surname, not some drinking club.)
Gilly, Ian, Josie & Morgan: a British family on tour. Our mission/thing is to undertake family trips to remember that will educate us, broaden our minds, be lots of fun and help us realise what really matters.
Pre kids we traveled a lot both with work and on our own dollar. In 2012 four of us raided the piggy bank, got a hall-pass (from school & work), got a house sitter and set off to lap the globe.
February 2012 we headed east from rural Wiltshire to Heathrow where we took to the skies… only to return 84 days, every time zone and some 28 thousand miles later from the west.
Yes, it was top banana. And yes, we were (and still are are) very, very fortunate folk.
This blog was set up so that we’d scrawl about our experiences as a family on the move. Recording and diarising primarily as a travelogue for ourselves, plus those who are interested to follow us. Expect posts from any one of us although the default scribe turned out to be Mr Beer.

Lots of love
