About Kim & Darren


Hi there!

We are the Traversing Twosome, a South African couple on the hunt to see and experience the most beautiful and unique places that this incredible planet has to offer us. The travel bug bit us three years ago and since then has kept us on this perpetual journey to see and try new things.

I, Kim, decided to create this blog in order to tell our adventure-filled stories to anyone who wants to listen. Along with our stories, I want to provide travel tips and tricks that I have learnt along the way (usually learned from our mistakes!) in order for all of YOU with wanderlust to have the best possible adventures in the future.

You can find out more about us here, from the first blog post ever written for The Traversing Twosome Blog. But three words that sum us could be:

Darren – Motorhead. Nature enthusiast. Spontaneous optimist.

Kim – Bookworm. Sport fanatic. Animal lover.

In order for us to travel to all these spectacular and most wonderful places we needed to have a starting point, a basis for our travels and where we would like to travel so we came up with our ultimate Bucket List. It is certainly a long one and with us adding some place new nearly all the time, it is definitely going to be a feat to complete. But we are up for the challenge and will ensure to keep you up to date a long the way.

We hope to inspire, enlighten and encourage you to explore the beautiful home we call Earth.

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,

To gain all while you give,

To roam the roads of lands remote,

To travel is to live.

– Hans Christian Andersen
