What is You Could Travel
You Could Travel is our travel website and our unique little corner of the internet run by Cory and G Varga from the rainy UK.
The website was created in April 2016, upon our return from our favourite destination in the world: Japan. You Could Travel quickly became a medium for sharing our adventures, captivating photography and quirky experiences. Our website is geared towards inspiring others through information packed articles that revolve around travel guides, recommendations, and tips. You Could Travel focuses on out of ordinary quests and underlines positives experiences abroad to encourage and motivate through personal adventures.
We specialise in soft adventure travel, off the beaten path destinations and culinary affairs. We strongly believe that a nomadic lifestyle is possible regardless of background, cultural beliefs or financial means and we motivate and encourage these experiences through storytelling and photographic essay.
Who is behind You Could Travel
We are Cory and G, a married couple from the UK who have been travelling together since 2013. Before that, we were both full time employed working in the IT industry as a UX Designer and Web Developer.
We met in September 2013 through work, decided to quit our jobs and found our digital studio, 42droids, which focuses on designing and developing top-notch websites for clients all across the globe. In doing so, we found a way to work, travel and live together.
How we started the You Could Travel project
It’s well known that England suffers from depressive weather. When they say it rains all the time, they mean it. I can 100% back this (unfortunately true) rumour. It rains all the bloody time. Since both G and I love to walk and hike in nature, we decided to spend what it looked like a lovely sunny afternoon strolling on the British rolling hills. After about 20 minutes, the weather (as unpredictable as it is) decided to turn sour and we got caught in the storm of the century. At the time we had no car, so we had to walk back in the pouring rain. Although we had a lot of fun, when we finally got home (drenched, I must add) we looked at each other, laughed and decided to go somewhere (anywhere) where we could enjoy a few days of sunshine. And so, we booked our first flight to Rome. Needless to say how Rome’s sunny streets, together with the epic Italian food and the local’s passion for life convinced us to just travel more.
It was because of our similarities, curiosity and that crazy appetite for discovery that made us want to embark on a continuous adventure and live our life travelling.
Why You Could Travel
After a couple of years of travelling, we finally made it to Japan. That’s where we got engaged. During our travels, we got to know the world one destination at the time. We’ve decided then that we wanted to inspire others to do by creating travel as a lifestyle. It’s not impossible, it’s a matter of ambition and willpower. We created this blog as a source of inspiration, help and clever advice on how to travel better and meaningfully. We came up with the name You Could Travel, because we wanted you to follow your most epic dreams, stop doing whatever makes you unhappy and embark on a life-long journey by travelling around the world. Eat, Pray, Love! Enjoy the Tuscan Sun or better yet, conquer the Everest. If you want to, YOU COULD TRAVEL!
You Could Travel brings together all the information you need to make the best travelling choices. This means learning how to save money, what destinations are worth exploring, how to find the best-kept secrets and what local food is all about. Essentially, we make a lot of mistakes during my journey so you don't have to.
Let’s go on an endless adventure!
About Coralia (Cory)
Cory is a Romanian-born British citizen who loved travelling ever since she was a little girl. She used to go on road trips with her family every weekend and hike the Carpathian mountains.

In 2013 she met the love of her life, G, whom she married in September 2016. Cory is the storyteller and photographer on You Could Travel as well as the predominant subject in all G’s pictures.
