Spreadsheets and Sandals

Well, you made it. Welcome to Spreadsheets and Sandals! Whether you’re here for travel advice, to see what we are up to and where in the world we are, or just by accident, we hope you’ll pull up a chair and stay a while.

We are Rachel and Daniel, the British couple behind this website. For the last seven years, we have travelled the world together, and have been sharing our stories and photography since 2016. We formally went by the name Travelling Writers – but, after some discussion, re-named ourselves Spreadsheets and Sandals. If you’re looking for free resources, travel spreadsheet advice, and stories – you’re in the right place.

Rachel has a PhD in Creative Writing, and finds that the only thing more enjoyable than travelling is having the opportunity to write about her adventures. Daniel is a budding travel photographer with a passion for food and exploration.

We began our travels as joint au pairs with a wonderful family in France, where we learnt to spend every moment in each other’s pockets. From here we travelled Europe by interrail, before moving onto travelling further afield: Malaysia, China, and Thailand, to name a few.

We blog about our adventures, experiences, and tips for budget travel that we have gathered along the way. Our blog is designed to inform and assist others in their travels, as well as providing us with a platform to reminisce about our favourite journeys. Head to Blog Posts and use the search bar if you have something specific in mind, or just peruse at your leisure.

We got married in June, 2019, and are currently on an epic year long honeymoon. Keep up to date with our trip by following us the links to our social media.
