Inspired by a game Kelly played during her childhood, We Packed Our Bags is a travel blog written by married couple Kelly and Anthony Mumford.
Anthony, hailing from Southend in Essex, moved to Sussex in his teens. Ant spent most of his time split between skateboarding, going to gigs and watching films. His favourite genre of music is metal and he is a massive Jackie Chan fan.
Kelly has always lived in Worthing, West Sussex but was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel during her teens. Also a music lover, Kelly spent her mid 20s going to local gigs to photograph the bands and has been a keen beauty blogger for years.
The couple met in 2008 in Brighton following a rock gig and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Getting engaged outside Hogwarts at Universal Studios, Florida in March 2012. They married in April 2014 in Brighton with just a small gathering of family and close friends.
The decision to plan The Big Trip stemmed from a number of things; the need for adventure before settling down, the need to get away from the stress of their day-to-day lives and of course escaping the infamous UK weather.
