With both our backgrounds in media, we knew from the start that we had to document our travels, and share it with as many people as we could. What started off small, has now turned into this website, Instagram, a Facebook page and a YouTube channel!
It took us a long time to think of a good name, that didn’t restrict us, or put us in a box, but as soon as we came up with ‘Always a Friday’ there was no looking back. The name came from us agreeing that our favourite day of the week was always Friday, because the weekend was just around the corner, being able to do what you want and having that feeling of freedom and excitement. Everybody loves that Friday feeling and now that we’re travelling we are trying to live everyday as if it is ‘Always a Friday’.
My passion for travelling started at a young age, thanks in part to my parents. They were always big on travel, my Dad who was in the Royal Navy and my Mum who worked in the travel industry, travelled a lot when they were younger, and growing up we would always go on a yearly holiday somewhere far flung, I can’t thank them enough for that. As I grew older and got myself a job, I would always try to save as much as I could, so I could to take a weekend trip to somewhere in Europe, the strong £ and ridiculously low cost flights you can get made this relatively easy. Having worked for a marketing agency as a Video Editor and Cameraman for 3 and a half years (learning tools that will hopefully help with everything we are doing now), I finally decided, this is the time, to travel the world, my lifelong dream.
Being able to travel the world has always been a dream of mine, but something I never believed in a million years would happen. From a young age I have always wanted to travel, explore and learn about the amazing world around us. I was lucky enough for my parents to take me to some amazing places but as soon as I was old enough I was taking myself there. Being so close to Europe I was fortunate to have all these destinations on my doorstep that I could start ticking them off the list. As soon as I met Nathan, everything just fell into place. To meet someone with the same desire to travel and the same interests I knew this would be the start of a new adventure for me. I really do not know where this journey is going to take us, but I am very excited to find out.
