About Us

Portraying a kaleidoscope of all things travel related mixed with just the right dosage of history and culture, Travel and Beyond is a blog written by travel writing couple Joseph Ellis and Rosemarie John, a former Aerospace and Defence Journalist.

They are travel enthusiasts (albeit COVID-19 putting a hold on that activity) who try to squeeze in an adventure any chance they get. While their professional lives have taken precedence and they haven’t blogged as much as they’d hope, Joseph and Rosemarie aim to change that when border restrictions are lifted.
