They’re back!  Mike and Alison Bareham (whom I interviewed back in episode 60) just before they were about to head off on their adventure around Australia and the World, are back from their whirlwind trip!

Mike and Alison, who are based in Nerang in Queensland Australia, actually did what so many of us think about and dream about (especially after a string of crappy shifts) – that being throwing in their jobs to go travelling.

Tune in to hear how their trip went including:

-Why they decided to go travelling in the first place
-The total number of flights undertaken, and countries visited
-How their little motorhome got the name ‘Lucy!’
-Some of their most favourite places and memorable moments including a 46-hour train ride through India!
-Their weekly budget, and did they stick to it?
-What it’s like to be back home
-Why they would recommend doing this before retirement – even if you still have a mortgage.
