Book for an event


Jessica and Stephen Parry-Valentine are an Australian couple with a love for travel and adventure. In 2014, the desire to drop everything to explore the world overwhelmed them, and before they knew it they were flying the nest and jumping on a one-way flight across the globe . . . and they have never looked back.

Since then, they have travelled to over 80 countries, bringing 2.1 million fellow travel addicts along for the ride. With a passion for filmmaking and photography, they are well-known for their YouTube travel series: Flying the Nest is Australia's most popular travel channel on the platform.

In 2020 Jessica and Stephen embarked on their biggest adventure yet, becoming parents to little Hunter. Our Home on Wheels is their first picture book, inspired by their travels around Australia as a family.
