About Us

We are Kaylene and Tom with our two boys Kyron (3) and Lucas (1). We have recently moved to the Philippines from the UK and have created this blog to share our experiences with family and friends.

We are living on a university campus for now, but Tom works down the road with an NGO (non-governmental organisation) called ADRA. (Adventist Development and Relief Agency).

So this is just a little bit of our everyday life – which may not be too exciting, but it’ll give you a taste of what our lives are like here.


Why Beside the Beaten Track? After 6 years of being on the beaten track living pretty normal lives in suburban London we figured it was time to take a slightly different track and that’s what this Philippines experience is for us.
