March 2020 – The start of the Covid-19 Pandemic There were 13 of us booked, but with the current situation and personal reasons, only 8 of us made it to Sharm El Sheikh. Disappointed as we were not to have the others with us, we slowly started unpacking and preparing to relax and enjoy our trip. 38 hours in when Egypt decided to low-key announce they were closing all airports on Thursday (19th) at 12 noon. Not a problem- we decided to call our airlines and change Sunday (22nd) flights to Wednesday or Thursday (18th or 19th), so we leave earlier. As we tried getting online, calling, texting, fa ..read more

An account from one of our companions. June 2022 Jordan! The jewel of Arabia, I mean how could it not be. I felt what I said when I sat on a huge rock, gazing into to the sunrise with nothing but the jaw dropping landscapes of Wadi Rum. I’m a traveller, a wonderer and without a doubt an adrenaline junkie. Not only was it fascinating to have explored the life of a Bedouin, sleeping under the stars in the endless dessert, but my India Jones experience was enhanced with a tour guide who was so knowledgeable it put me to shame. I scribbled notes, quotes and facts down in my little notebook. There ..read more

‘Are you sure you want to visit Iran?’ An account from one of our companions. Iran 2023 This is one of many questions I was asked before my adventure to Iran. Some put it bluntly, others more indirectly; all with good intentions of course. A friend suggested Iran and, in all honesty, I hadn’t considered visiting it prior to that. Being a teacher, I have worked with families and colleagues of different nationalities. All the Iranian colleagues and families I had worked with were all incredibly warm-hearted people who took pride in their rich culture and spoke fondly about Iran. I’m naturally a ..read more

With the new updated website (December 2022) we somehow managed to lose all our blogs to date. But that’s ok, these things happen and it just means we need to get on with writing and telling more stories that we can share. The first version of The MWTG website went live in 2018 and although it was very basic, it was still something and the beginning of our journey. Since this time we have visited many countries, explored numerous cities and created some really great memories. The best part has been seeing those that travel with us form friendships, find their people and create their own sister ..read more
