OUR STORY

Faraway founders Al & Hells

We're Helen and Al. We're a married couple who crave new adventures, and love helping people go on unforgettable escapes.

Our journey to building Faraway comes from a simple idea: we love trips that are more than just a holiday, and believe in taking time out to re-set and experience something different.

Before Faraway, we were both climbing the corporate ladder in London, spending as much time as our jobs would allow travelling. We'd spend hours researching the gems which weren't in the travel guides, challenging ourselves to discover something new in every place.

The trips got longer and longer until eventually we took six months out to explore Indonesia and South America. We'd both been working for ten years, and wanted to take some time away from our hectic lives with a proper escape. It was then we realised we could be onto something special, and came home energised to turn this idea into something more.

Since then, we've created a rather different life together; one that allows us to travel and explore whilst personally crafting extraordinary trips for busy people like us.

This is why we're building Faraway – we want to help you take time out for an experience you’ll never forget.
