Marion Payen 


Growing up between France, Canada, Mexico and USA, Marion has travelled the world since the age of 4 before ending up in London in 2014 for work. Travelling was in her blood. Catching Friday night flights to Europe or elsewhere, sometimes being back in time for work Monday morning. She started to create a website for young backpackers looking for straight-forward tips on what to do, where to go and where to stay on a limited time and budget.

Two years ago, Tamara was living in London. She could see what lay ahead of her; a journalism job, lots of bad weather and too much routine. She booked a flight to Nepal and has not looked back, or been home since. She has now crossed four continents, has friends all over the globe and has no intentions of stopping just yet.

Her love for writing has given her travels even more purpose, as she tells the stories and adventures of the inspiring people she encounters around the world.

Travel Philosophy: 'There are no wrong decisions'

Next Destination: Mexico by motorbike

Fabien Le Jeune


It's only a few years ago that Fabien, passionate photographer, got the travel bug. He started his discovery visiting all the European countries. Since then, he has been travelling every time a little further, looking for a new land where spectacular panoramas will leave him speechless. Not only does he want to discover new countries but also come and meet new people and especially new cultures. His hunger to learn about human kind, about life and about himself translate into beautiful articles he likes to write after coming back from a trip, sharing his experience with others.
