Mr & Mrs W From FlyDriveExplore

We are Mr and Mrs W, a married couple from a little seaside town in South Wales, United Kingdom. This blog is about our adventures, our travels, our explorations, our fun, our laughs, our experiences and hopefully not too many arguments. Come along for the ride!

Marcus at FlyDriveExplore

Mr W doesn’t suffer fools gladly and says it like it is. He is adventurous and has a dry sense of humour. Passions include luxury travel, style, Formula 1 and learning to fly. Always happy when he’s spending money, his favourite destinations include Las Vegas, New York and Tenby.
Funniest travel quote whilst in an alligator-infested swamp, “Watch out for the menacing budgies!“.


Mrs W is outgoing, fun and extremely passionate about travel, which is at odds with her fear of flying! She adores good food and great service, whether that is a Michelin star restaurant or a simple rustic cafe. She is always happy when she is getting value for money.
Favourite destinations include California, Florida and Amsterdam. Funniest travel quote, “Is Hungary in Budapest?

We hope our blog will be informative, fun, and full of the stuff you really want to know. The perfect spot to get that must-have photo, and what attractions you really shouldn’t miss. Which local dishes you really must try and where to find the best happy hours. The travel apps we really rate, and what items we wouldn’t travel without. How to book the cheapest DIY holidays and where to get the best package deals. We don’t profess to be experts but we research each destination thoroughly as we don’t want to miss out on every eye-popping, spine-tingling, camera clicking experience. We will even show you our fridge magnets!
