Hello and welcome to Clock Out Check In. We started this blog for people like us who work full-time and love to travel. At Clock Out Check In we wrigte from our own experiences as young professionals trying to make the most of our 25 days’ annual leave each year.


As we love to travel, we spend a lot of time researching our next adventure and reading travel blogs for inspiration. But in our experience, travel blogs are almost exclusively aimed at full-time travellers. They are full of fantastic advice on how to travel around the world on a budget but, here at Clock Out Check In, that’s not our style.

Sure, if you ask us on our Monday morning commute, we would much prefer to be backpacking through South-East Asia than sitting on the District Line. But we really do love our life in London, pursuing our careers in exciting and rewarding full-time jobs. Like everyone, we definitely look forward to escaping the office for an adventure, but by working full-time we can actually afford to go on the exotic holidays, stay in beautiful hotels and eat at the best local restaurants.


As this isn’t our full-time job, we don’t need to accept paid promotions for things that we don’t like. We promise to only recommend places that we have tried ourselves and loved. For example, we could tell you about lots of fantastic places to stay in Prague – but we always go to the Icon Hotel & Lounge. Why? Because we love it and we know you will too.

For us, proper research is even more important when planning our next holiday. If you only have 25 days away from the office each year, you can’t afford to waste one. That’s why we think Clock Out Check In can become the go to blog for people like us. Over the coming months we will be sharing with you a whole range of posts covering our recent trips and our top tips on how to make the most of your 25 days’ annual leave. So if you are looking for the best vegetarian dishes in Prague or advice on whether an excursion to Chichen Itza is worth it – we can help.


So welcome – let us know what you would like to see on the blog in the comments below, follow us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter by submitting your email address below.

    Let’s clock out of the office and check in to your next adventure.
