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 as they explore the world.

Travelling continuously since 2013, with a two year hiatus to have their daughter, the family of three are currently caravanning around Australia on the next leg of their adventure.

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.
