At Idiots On Tour we are a small group of friends who enjoy travelling around the world together. We believe that holidays shouldn’t mean you have to remortgage your home or take out large loans. Our goal is to find cheap yet fun ways to experience this fantastic planet of ours and then pass these tips and ideas on so more people can enjoy travelling as much as we do.
To explain how we have made it to this point we thought we would tell you a story…
Once upon a time there was 3 idiots called Joe, Luke and Lloyd… only joking, this is not a fairy tale story and those 3 are far from inspirational (but they are idiots), here is the real story.
Back in 2014 when Joe, Luke and Lloyd were sitting around doing nothing as always, a conversation popped up about when they last went on holiday. To their horror they realised that it had been over 4 years since any of them had last had a holiday. They set out to rectify this immediately and started researching cheap holidays that they could go on. After looking at Krakow in Poland for many hours and finding loads of cheap things to do they decided to book their holiday. Much to Luke’s annoyance Joe and Lloyd, at the last minute, decided to change the holiday to Gothenburg in Sweden (insert crazy childish idea of batman chasing bad people around the city).
This was it, the three of them now had the travelling bug and started to work solely to fund more holidays and gadgets. After two more holidays in 2015 to Portugal and Japan, Lloyd was thinking of ways that he could easily inform people of his holidays and show them the pictures. This was when the idea struck Lloyd, why not use the internet to host our stories, pictures and tips so anyone can see them. So at their next
sociable gathering Lloyd pitched the idea “Let’s make a blog!” and the response from both Joe and Luke of “Yeah alright” gave the project the green light.
So the three idiots soldiered on with their new blog idea and are aiming to improve their skills throughout their journey travelling around the world safe in the knowledge that it was their love of travelling which fuelled their way forward.
