Expat Aussies in the UK with our dog, London.

Hi there, we’re Sarah & Cooper, publishers of the Travel Live Learn brand. We like to inspire about what’s possible, and show you
how to achieve a global work-travel-expat life of your dreams at any age!

Travel Live Learn was founded in 2011 as a blog about our experiences moving to London from Australia. It has evolved a lot over the past decade – through two more subsequent moves from Australia to live in the UK (apparently we like it here!). We’ve grown into a multichannel brand about travel (including destination profiles, pet-friendly and house sitting), remote work, and expat life. It’s our intention to help people to see how to create a global travel life at any age – to travel longer; to live and work from anywhere.

Over the past ten years we’ve come to really value the freedom and inspiration that travel offers. COVID put into harsh perspective the fact that we should never take our time or opportunities for granted. So, in 2023, we’ve moved back to the UK from Australia. It’s our third time living and working here, and this time we’ve brought our “COVID puppy”, London, along for the adventure.

Travel Live Learn is produced by us – Sarah Blinco & Cooper Dawson – and it’s where we channel over 15 years specialist media and communications experience alongside a passion for seeing the world. Our core values  freedom, creativity and care for animals – are reflected in our content. We love what we do here, and want to inspire you to do the same.
