We are Vaughan and Lauren Manuel McShane from Cape Town, South Africa. We form the formidable travel writing and photographic duo of The Travel Manuel. Traipsing around the globe, we inspire everyone to leave their home, if only for a while to explore other corners of this beautiful earth. We also provides helpful tips for newbie travellers and hardcore trekkers alike as well as guidelines for expats in living in Asia. We can usually be found near the ocean, find ways to filter good coffee or frantically searching for wifi.
