Header image: What Should Baz Do

It’s a scientific fact that men who travel are far sexier than men who stay at home. (OK, so that’s probably not scientific, but if any-one is willing to provide the funding I would be happy to launch a research project).

Because it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself bored dating a boy who travels. He treasures experiences over toys, and talks of distant places. His hands have explored the stone relics of ancient civilizations, and he has lived out of a backpack because he lives happily with less. He is enthusiastic about the world, and passes on that enthusiasm to you.

Greg Carter & Chad Carey

Greg & Chad

About Chad & Greg

When Australian expats Greg Carter and Chad Carey sat down over a beer in London 13 years ago, they could barely afford their drinks. The pair spent most of their funds on travel, but it wasn’t until that evening in 2003 that they found a way to pay the bills – without hanging up their backpacks.

They founded a tour company called Chimu Adventures, and what began as selling trips to Peru from laptops in a London Apartment has since boomed into a 40 million dollar business that specializes in travel across South America, and expedition cruises to Antarctica.

They are both leaders in sustainable tourism, and have micro-financed more than 700 local ventures in Latin America. Greg says “It might be as simple as a few hundred dollars buying a delivery man a bicycle, but that is how these villages function and we want to continue helping however we can.”

And not only because you’re more likely to bump into attractive people, but because the country’s 18,000 unspoiled islands are just as drool-worthy as the above listed men!

See the best of Indonesia on a sailing adventure with; until recently, planning an Indonesia cruise required a fair bit of forward planning, as many local operators don’t have a website.

Indonesia is one of the top countries featured on the platform, with over 160 yacht charters and adventures available – check out some of their sexy adventures! Click here.
