About Us

Ever noticed that there’s just too much to see and too little time?

AllAbroad is a site dedicated to the traveller in all of us. Whether you’re seeking thrilling adventures, cultural experiences or just need a break from the constant grind of life, AllAbroad will give you the inspiration and tips to get out and see the world.

We focus on immersive travel – why just see a place when you can learn from the locals, take in the culture and experience how people live in different parts of the world.

So who are we? Formally, we’re Diane Squires and Adrian Duncan – Di and Ade – an Aussie couple with a passion for travel, photography and writing.

We had our first major overseas trip in 2001 – a three-month visit to the UK and Europe. It was the so-called “trip of a lifetime” but fortunately for us it wasn’t the last and we have been travelling wherever and whenever we can ever since.

We love exploring new cultures, meeting new people and wandering through different landscapes. And, of course, capturing those experiences in words and pictures to share with others.

Oh, and we also host international tours with the Melbourne-based travel company Two’s a Crowd, which is why you’ll often see stories from our trips with these guys.

When we’re not travelling or hosting tours, Ade can be found taking serious photos for clients or fixing people’s aches and pains as a myotherapist, while Di spends her time writing or helping organisations use their words better as a communications specialist.

We hope you enjoy this site, but more importantly, we hope it inspires you to get out and explore the world.

Because life really is an adventure!

    What a beautiful website – your writing and pictures are wonderful. If you ever get the chance, you must visit Iceland. It’s a photographer’s dream for light and although it’s expensive, I’ve put together a list of Free things to do. http://www.fionatrowbridge.com/p/iceland.html

      HI Fiona, thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Iceland is definitely on our list of must-see destinations! Love your list of free things to do! Travel is not about how much you spend, for us it’s definitely about what you experience along the way. – Cheers Di.
