Hello and thanks for stopping by! We are an English guy and an Aussie gal, we hope you enjoy reading about our adventures together. This blog is a chronicle of our lives and we hope in the process we can inspire someone out there reading to go and see or experience something new!

Here is a little about us.

The Cannons


We met while we were both working in London in 2014. It sounds cliche, but from that moment on our lives really did change forever. We spent our London lunch times in Mount Street Gardens and Grosvenor Square – two of our favourite green spaces in the city. We spent our nights and weekends drinking wine in London, exploring the English countryside or making trips over to the continent. My visa expiry meant I had to return to Australia, from there we endured the 10 hour time difference, a lot of Whatsapp messages and a long distance relationship. Tim came down under twice in that time, where we had our first Aussie Christmas together and we even managed a road trip around New Zealand. In May 2016, I came back to the UK and together we made our way up to our favourite place in the world – Scotland. It was there on the Isle of Skye that we tied the knot and became husband and wife! Now, as a couple of Loose Cannons we are about to venture to South East Asia and eventually land back in Australia, where we know the adventure will continue!

Tim (as told by Sammy)


Tim, TC or Timothy Cannon (when he’s in trouble), is the pommy man behind the camera. He has an eye for an incredible photo and a lot more patience than me to get the best shot. His passion for pretty much anything and love of the outdoors inspires me everyday (except when we are hiking up a mountain in the rain/hail/clouds – that just makes me cold). He is adventurous, argumentative and thoughtful. He loves cups of tea, his camera, politics, a fry up and his beautiful wife.

Sammy (as told by Tim)


Sam, Samantha or Sammy (according only to her name on social media), is the Aussie brains behind the writing. Definitely the more creative of us, she’s been blogging since before we met. Always the most ridiculous person in the room her love for life is intoxicating. Her love of love is unparalleled and she’s a hopeless romantic, even though she’ll tell me otherwise. She loves sleeping, traveling, her apple devices, sweet potato and her handsome husband.
