About Tea & Sun
Husband & wife team, Stuart & Jacqueline, with their daughters, Amelie & Soraya, embarking on a global journey to broaden their horizons. This site is for family, friends & anyone with an interest in the same passions for travel.

We will be including general posts regarding everything we come across so will not be solely dedicated to Tea, including regular posts whilst on our travels and general resources especially for travelling families.
Visit About Stuart & Jacqui for more details on the family.
