Within this variant of Celebrity Travel Addicts , we speak with the Welsh few behind Kinging-It and Aimee, Craig, a travel motion that’s supposed to inspire others including the ups and the downs. We speak about their calls together they’ve had an extreme festival they seen while in India, with their wellbeing, their best destinations across the Earth, plus even more! Learn more about them and find out where they are headed!
How did your passion for travel get started?
We’ve difficulty with death! haha! But seriously our trip was to Australia to observe after she had been diagnosed at only 17 Aimee getting the cancer. Shortly after that excursion Craig moved into New Zealand and broke his neck! Don’t even know how we receive travel insurance! We have craved travel and have been fascinated by different cultures and seeing terrific and weird things on the street.
How many days/weeks are you traveling in any given year? What are the kinds of places you like to visit?
At the moment we are traveling for 70% of the year and the remainder is spent at home and rejuvenating our energy, and planning the next trip! In all honesty, the travel is exhausting! We love seeing places that people don’t really see. The Mongol Rally for example took us through the Middle East to each of the’stans’ — Turkmenistan, Mongolia, Iran and Uzbekistan, that has been only the and colorful adventure of our lives. We did not even know these nations!
The two of you are from South Wales from the UK.
What makes South Wales such a terrific travel destination? What should travelers do and find out when they go there?
Wales as a whole is really a great travel destination, in the coastline to the epic mountains from the North, Wales is actually an underrated jewel of earth. ? West Wales is magnificent and indeed scenic, when the sun is out it may be confused for its Caribbean. Folks should visit the North and visit Snowdonia, take a drive down the coast and end at some of castles and the wicked beaches en route. There is also some very unique lodging in Wales, a dragon’s eye, treehouses, a UFO. Can you inform us love our nation?
Traveling can lead to lots of moments that are unexpected. What has been the oddest thing that’s happened in your journeys that caused a memorable or unique moment?
We recently returned from our final trip — driving a rickshaw to the base of India from the very top. This nation throws all kinds and we had been driving through Mumbai and heard lots of drums and symbols . We parked up and have dragged to the midst. People were hitting at themselves piercing their cheeks with long needles, all and smashing coconuts on each others heads with baseball bats celebrating. It ends up it was a muslim festival named Urs Festival — never to be overlooked! A memorable and arbitrary moment!
Aimee, you have been cancer-free for more than a decade today. First off, congratulations! How has beating it influenced you and travels going and fighting cancer? What did you remove that battle that you take with you today or understand?
Thank you! Beating and having cancer has made me the man I’m today. I’m stronger for it as well as as it seems you never know what’s round the corner! You should never wait to occur to change how you are gone. Having cancer has caused me to see the world in a different manner and I can’t get around to folks enough instead of merely settling for an ordinary life, they should be living joyful. Follow your passions and chase your dreams lads! You got one life to live.
What do you want audiences learn and to attain from the work?
We say’We go do it wrong, so you don’t need to!’ ? We would like people to understand that people and other nations aren’t frightening. It doesn’t put us off moving if people say stuff about a nation. We will go and create our own view of places and we have never come across one we did not enjoy!? When we told people we’re likely to Iran they all freaked out. The press has ruined it. Iran was the friendliest people we met. We would like to teach people about civilization and how everyone has something in common. We want to inspire people do it all well and to travel and do it differently.

Many people item Iceland is super expensive to journey, but I don’t think they realise the things to do there are all free! ? The Golden Circle is really a fantastic path to see of what Iceland has to offer a pinch. And most importantly you can drive it on yourself! In addition, we urge people to do their own vacationing in Iceland as tours with businesses can be quite pricey.
