We are Gordon and Paula, and we are Destination and Experience Influencers and Marketers. As Award Winning Professional Travel Writers at Contented Traveller, we love to travel and to share our expertise with you. We have been travelling together for 13 years, and independently for a lot longer than that. We have both come from successful long-term careers. Gordon has been a mining engineer, and I was a teacher in a senior executive position for many years. We are also married, and are best friends. Soppy but true. We are drawn to people. We find out more about the customs and beliefs of a place from the people we meet than from any book. We try to immerse ourselves in the very culture of the places we are visiting and then share that with our readers. We love food, art, people watching and writing about experiential travel.
