Twippers of the Week: Charli and Ben from Wanderlusters.


Current city: Charlestown, Nevis, West Indies.

Age: 28 and 34.

Total countries visited: 18

What makes you interesting: We have been travelling the world and house sitting for the last four and a half years. During this time, we have lived rent-free in 10 different countries.

What is the best part about having a travel partner: Having your best friend along for the ride means there’s always someone by your side with whom to enjoy the journey.

What is your favorite travel memory: Learning to scuba dive in Costa Rica. We spent three months in training and have enabled us to dive in locations all over the world.

Where and when were you the most travel shocked: When we checked in for our flight to Australia and were told that we needed a visa. New regulations had just been put in place and we looked like travel newbies because we had just assumed we didn’t need a visa and would be welcomed with open arms.

What do you put in your carry-on baggage: Headphones, laptops, camera, scuba regulators, diving watches, sleep mask, toothbrush, and lots of snacks.

Where did you go for your first travel experience: We rented an SUV in Las Vegas and spent three months road tripping across the west coast of the USA.

Next travel destination: For the first time in our lives we actually haven’t decided yet! Normally we plan three or four months in advance but at the moment we are just flying by the seat of our pants.
