Off-grid couple who travel UK with dog


A woman who found not one, but two life-long companions after swiping right on a dating app. When Kayla Moyes, 24, first saw maths teacher Sam Taylor’s profile in November 2017, she admits she was only interested in the “chubby ginger guy with the bad haircut” because of the photos of his four-legged friend Gary he had posted. Pining for her own pet pooch Trixy, who was more than 4,500 miles away back at her home on Vancouver Island, Canada, the student, who had moved to Cardiff, Wales, to do a media management degree, thought she would give him a chance. Now, two years on, her gamble has paid off, and she, Sam, 27, and Gary all live together in Cardiff, spending their free time on the road in a souped-up mobile home. Kayla, a PR Executive, said: “If Sam hadn’t posted a picture of Gary on his Bumble profile, I wouldn’t have swiped right.
