Our story

Profile Picture Hampton Court

Hi! We’re Lies and Ash, travel bloggers and photographers behind Non Stop Destination. Lies, a Belgian national, and Ash, born in South Africa, met in London while working on the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We’re full-time Visual Effects Artists and part-time travellers and have been exploring the world together since 2013.

Our first trip together was to Singapore and Bali. One year later, on a two month long holiday in South Africa, Non Stop Destination was born. We started documenting our travels and photography, first as a journal for ourselves, and now our goal is to inspire you to explore this beautiful planet.

Our travel style

We love

Soft Adventures

We love being active on our trips. Even on our most relaxing holidays, we can’t stay put for one day. We’re not adrenaline junkies, but we do love activities such as dog sledding, water rafting, zip lining, paragliding and jumping off waterfalls to name a few.

We fill our days with

Packed itineraries

From short city trips to epic road trips, we pack each and every trip with as many things to see and do. We want to discover as much as we can on our travels, which means our trips are always fast-paced. As a result, our travel guides pack a punch! 

We focus on

unique experiences

We don’t mind exploring well-trodden paths, but on every trip, we try to add some unique experiences. Whether this is a virtual reality dinner, a ghost tour or a walk on an active volcano, we never say no to something special. 

We don't mind

A touch of luxury

We enjoy travelling off the beaten path, but we also love comfort at the end of the day. We particularly love unique boutique hotels and experiences as they add to our overall travel experience
