Dave & Carmen Allan-Petale – Travel Journalists

Stop, look, and listen. Travel brings a rare opportunity to experience the world around us without a filter – if we let it.

Carmen and Dave are writers and journalists who use their pens and keyboards to sketch remarkable travel images and dig deep into the traditional culture and contemporary issues of the places they go. They also make the occasional foray into the world of luxury.

With an emphasis on quality travel writing, storytelling and journalistic integrity, Double-Barrelled Travel is a blog for exploring the world around us mindfully, honouring the power of words to connect across borders and boundaries.
