Nick & Dariece are the fun Canadian couple behind the increasingly popular Goats on the Road travel blog. Living out their dream, they travel the world only stopping to teach a bit of English now and then. Here’s some of their favorite photos from one of their favourite countries in the world, Mozambique…

While travelling through the wild and raw continent of Africa, we had some amazing moments. Some of our best memories come from Mozambique, an exotic country with Portuguese influence and flare. The brilliant colours of the clothing and the landscape were stunning; the scenery was breathtaking and the people who live there were lively, bubbly and very welcoming. During our backpacking journey from the South to the North of Mozambique, we met some interesting characters while enjoying the rhythm of this fabulous country.

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
