Welcome to Life of Pye, the website designed to inspire people to travel more for less!
My name is Stephen Pye, in October 2016 I quit my job and sold all of my possessions to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! I had lived and worked in London for many years, and while I enjoyed my career I always felt as though something was missing and I was leading the life that society was telling me to lead rather than the life I wanted to live.
So on a dreary Monday morning in London I quit my job, organised to sell all of my possessions and booked a one way ticket to Bangkok to explore as much of South East Asia as I could. I’ve filmed everyday that I’ve traveled; running a YouTube Channel and sharing all the tips and tricks I’ve found that will help to enable others to live the lives they want to live.
Along the way on a incredibly hot and stuffy day in Brunei I met a beautiful lady that I now have the pleasure of calling my girlfriend and co-author; luckily for me she just so happened to be a blogger and website designer by trade. It wasn’t long before we’d made plans, bought plane tickets, and started on this crazy adventure of creating a travel website to inspire others to Travel More. Spend Less.
This website is a compilation of both of our experiences and journeys as solo travelers before meeting as well as our joint travels as a couple. Our philosophy being to travel on a budget, see as much of the world as possible and share it with others along the way showing that anyone can travel, even with limited cash resources or time.
We hope that you will join us on our travels and see what one crazy Brit and cheeky California girl get themselves into as they travel the globe one day and city at a time!
