Georgie Montague and Rod English certainly have itchy feet.
Whether driving through the great sand dunes of Namibia, glamping in the wilds of Kenya, exploring the attractions of Morocco or riding the rails in Europe, this Aussie couple sure love to keep moving.
We met them on a Scoot 787 Dreamliner flight from Athens to Singapore, as they headed home for the first time in eight months.
Swapping stories of life on the road, we were fascinated by the belter skelter pace set by Georgie and Rod after they had left Cairns, Queensland – bound firstly for Western Australia and then South Africa.
Destinations such as Johannesburg, Madagascar, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Kenya, Frankfurt, the UK, Rome, Morocco and Athens – to name but a few – rolled off the tongue ….. each with a better story.
We were in awe of their endurance and the fact that much of their trip was totally unplanned – simply meandering where the road and rail took them.
And, of course, they were savvy enough to realise that Scoot’s popular Singapore-Athens service – linked with the airline’s Australian services – offered great value as a gateway to Europe and beyond.
After such a long time on the road, Georgie and Rod said the ScootBiz premium service – with its comfort and legroom – beckoned their aching bones.
Note: The Memorable Destination team travelled to Europe courtesy of Scoot, however all opinions, as always, are ours.
