What We're About

  • Welcome, and thank you for visiting us!  We're Jimmy and Tina an English and American couple who share a passion for travel and everyday life enjoyment. Life is way too short to get bogged down by the hustle and bustle of work and daily nuances. Everyone should take time to recharge their batteries and do what you love!   Our hope is to inspire and encourage you to live your life to the fullest and do what makes you happy!  For us that happiness comes from traveling, painting and being silly! 
  • Durham's Love, Life and Travel was created to share our travel experiences and expertise with you!  Quitting your job to travel the world is not always realistic for the majority of the population.  Which includes us.  However we do travel frequently every year.  That said, we all deserve a break sometime and we hope this site has some useful information for you to Dream and Plan your next getaway!

me in countryside

Hi I'm Tina, an adventure junkie at heart!  I love camping and going to lake which is like the right of passage for any Minnesotan since we have over 10,000 lakes! Skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, painting and traveling can also be added to my list of favourite things to do.  I've left the corporate world behind to join my Jimmy in England and we're looking forward to enjoying the rest of our lives together!


Jimmy on the Beach

Hello, Jimmy Here!  Pleased to meet you!  ​James Bond may have a license to kill, but I have a license to thrill. Just call me 00D! As you can see i'm the funny one here, not like Tina. Into all that boring hiking, wind surfing and all that kind of stuff. I'm just plain 00D. Most in life I enjoy travelling and meeting all different kinds of people. In general I'm just Jim, pass me a pint and chill!
